Jurgen Klopp has once again hinted that he will retire from management when his Liverpool contract expires in 2022.

Liverpool manager Klopp has three years left on his current Anfield deal but has periodically suggested that he doesn’t plan to sign another contract at the Merseyside club.

Only last week the German made a joke about hanging up his tracksuit by saying “maybe I’ll retire” while picking up an award in his homeland.

Klopp has always fulfilled his contracts at previous clubs Mainz and Borussia Dortmund, and he has promised he stay at Liverpool for his full seven seasons.

Klopp arrived at Liverpool in 2015, after he left German giants Borussia Dortmund, and has taken the Reds to two Champions League finals, winning one of them.

Jurgen Klopp has dropped another retirement hint

Along with lifting the European Cup last year, Klopp took Liverpool to within a point of the Premier League title, as his side was edged out by Manchester City .

But Klopp admits despite his successes, he may well need at least a year off in the future to recharge his batteries.

“It looks like it. Who can now say if he can give it his all in three years’ time?” Klopp told Kicker.

“If I decide for myself that I can’t go on anymore, I’ll take a break and in that year I’d have to make a definite decision [if he wants to continue at all].

Klopp lifted the Champions League last season

“I have absolute energy, but I have one problem: I can’t to ‘a little bit.’ I can only do ‘all or nothing.’

“But the chances are very high that my energy levels will go up again [after a year’s break], and that I can then do the job the way I want to.”

In accepting the coach of the year award last week, he was asked what is next in his career after lifting the Champions League, and he replied: “I hope to continue like this, but in two, three years I don’t know what may happen.

“Maybe I’ll retire!” It was said in a lighthearted way, but then he added: “It doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen, however, but if that were the case, you wouldn’t be surprised.”
