Jurgen Klopp has said he won't miss the "brutal tension" that comes before a game when he eventually retires from football. Liverpool boss has continually dropped hints he'll take some time off when his contract at Anfield expires in 2024.
Klopp has recently told German publication SportBuzzer: "I'll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football. If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jurgen Klopp."
And in his interview the passionate Liverpool boss confirmed there are things about the game he doesn't enjoy.
"If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not miss: the brutal tension immediately before the game,"
Klopp also added:
"This club is in such a good place, I couldn't contemplate leaving. For me personally this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.
"When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow. People see what happens on the pitch as a measure of our progress and although it is the best measure, it's not the only measure.
"I have seen the commitment from ownership through to every aspect and function of the club you can think of. When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that.
"It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complementary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024. If I didn't, I would not be re-signing."
