Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confessed he intends to take a break from coaching upon the expiration of his contract in 2022.
The 52-year-old arrived at Anfield in 2015, replacing Brendan Rodgers in the hot seat after a successful spell in charge at Borussia Dortmund.
Klopp quickly transformed the Reds into a high-energy, attack-minded outfit capable of competing with the best teams in Europe, but was made to wait for his first piece of silverware.
When asked if a sabbatical could be on the cards in three years time, Klopp told German magazine Kicker : “It looks like it. Who can now say if he can give it his all in three years’ time?
“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].
“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.”
