Jurgen Klopp discusses his Liverpool future amid poor season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he has no plans to leave the club in the near future despite the Reds’ downturn in form.

Liverpool have endured a surprisingly poor 2022/23 campaign under Klopp, going from title-contenders to mid-table mediocrity seemingly overnight.

The Reds sit in eighth in the Premier League table, behind the likes of Brighton and Brentford, and suffered an early UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid.

Due to this form, speculation has been rife about Klopp’s long-term future at Anfield, speculation which the manager himself was keen to downplay in a recent press conference.

“[At Dortmund], I stepped back and then we turned it around while I was stepping back. When I announced I would leave at the end of the season we played a good part, that is true. [Leaving Liverpool] is not my plan,” he said.

“The difference at that time was we had the winter break so we had a really good second part of the season. I don’t know exactly if it was completely after I said I wanted to leave because the whole second part of the season was good. It was nearly normal, from where we were coming from.

“Players started coming back from injury and we started playing our football again. When players came back here so far it didn’t work out. That is the main difference.

“I tried a lot and in moments it did work out, and in others not. The inconsistency is the most annoying part of it, to be honest. Still we have to keep doing and trying.”

Klopp’s Liverpool will be looking to re-find some form after three defeats on the bounce when they travel to Stamford Bridge to face manager-less Chelsea on Tuesday evening.


Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Klopp also took some time to discuss the wave of managerial sackings in the Premier League this season – with 12 occurring thus far this season.

Klopp admitted that, with so many losing their job, he felt like the ‘elephant in the room’ due to Liverpool’s poor form: “What can I say about [the sackings]? I think the elephant in the room is why am I still sitting here in this crazy world! [I am] the last man standing!”
