A report has revealed that Jurgen Klopp has a special clause in his contract at Liverpool that means the club have to help him relocate back to Germany once his deal ends.

Klopp has managed Liverpool since 2015 after winning the Bundesliga twice with Borussia Dortmund.

He led The Reds to Champions League glory last season as they finished second in the Premier League behind Man City.

And now Klopp looks set to go one better as Liverpool have raced into a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League with 13 matches to go.

There’s little chance the German boss will leave anytime soon with Klopp signing a new deal at Anfield in December that runs until 2024.

And Liverpool have committed to offering assistance to Klopp if he decides to move back to Germany once his time at the club ends.

The Independent says ‘that when Klopp’s time at Anfield comes to an end, there is an offer within his contract to repatriate him back to Germany on his terms.’

Klopp has been linked with Bayern Munich and the Germany national team job in the past and they could be the most likely options if he was to return.

Speaking back in August after winning coach of the year at the SPORT BILD awards, Klopp said: “In the order I would like to do it. First national team, then Bayern, then back to BVB and then Liverpool for life.

“I have no idea [though], I really do not know that.

“I hope for now that the next two or three years will continue in the same way. And then I will decide that.”

Klopp said fans should not be surprised if he decides he wants to leave the game altogether.

“Everything is possible. So just that I stop completely, is just possible,” he added.

“Whether that is the case or not – I really do not know.

“I’m just saying that so you will not be surprised when it happens.”
