Jurgen Klopp will take a one-year break from football management after leaving Liverpool.
Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager in October 2015, ending a self-imposed five-month sabbatical after leaving Borussia Dortmund the previous summer.
The German signed a three-year contract at Anfield, with those deals extended until 2022 at the end of his first season.
That would take Klopp to seven years in charge on Merseyside – the same amount of time he spent at both Mainz and Dortmund – and the German admits it is a “very intense” lifestyle.
As a result, he plans on taking a one-year break from management when he does eventually leave.
“It’s possible that I will end my career a lot earlier than coaches usually do,” Klopp told Sky in Germany. “It’s very intense.
“I don’t want to die on the coaching bench. After Liverpool I will for sure do a one-year break. That’s a clear agreement with my family.”
Let’s hope to see plenty of naked training sessions before then.
