Klopp suggests he will leave Liverpool to take a sabbatical in three years

Jurgen Klopp has suggested that he could ‘take a break’ a break from football once his Liverpool contract expires.

Klopp’s current deal is set to expire in 2022, with the Liverpool hierarchy thought to be keen to tie him down to a longer-term deal.

However, by the time 2022 comes around though, Klopp will have been Liverpool boss for almost seven years, the same length of time that he spent at Borussia Dortmund.

Speaking about what his future holds, the German has admitted that he needs to maintain ‘absolute energy’, and if it is missing, he is likely to ‘take a break’.

“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 [over my career].

“I have absolute energy, but I have one problem; I can’t do ‘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.”

The 52-year-old has long been touted as a future Bayern Munich boss, while his exciting brand of football is likely to attract the attention of all of European football’s biggest clubs should he become available.
