Addressing a press conference ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with West Ham United, the reds boss said;
“If I have the energy levels for it is important, I love what I do but there must be something else out there in the world apart from always thinking about very well-skilled, good looking, fantastically nice players! But I really don’t think about it.”
“I’m full of energy but I have to make sure that is the case (in the future). I don’t want to sit around and be more tired and think, ‘Wow! Why is everyone bothered about the things out there because I couldn’t care less?'”
Jurgen Klopp on his future: “The plan is still the same. Nothing has changed and if I decide to leave in 2024, it’ll be nothing to do with the quality of the squad. All we do is for the long term”.
“This club must be even better when I am not here anymore”.

Speaking on how his approach to the game, Klopp said: “I was 20 years nearly working in Germany but I never thought: “Oh my God! We are perfect, we should bring all that stuff to other countries!” No, just doing the right things, employing the right people in the right positions.”
‘It doesn’t mean you win the title. It means you have the right people for the right job. That’s what we try and these people — a lot of them here at the moment — will be good. It will be fine whenever it will be after I leave. The plan is 2024, thank you very much.”
