Unfortunately, a number of unfortunate events that have transpired in recent times have increased the likelihood of Jurgen Klopp leaving Anfield in the not-too-distant future. This is a prospect that many Liverpool supporters would prefer to never have to face.
Even though he just recently put his signature on a new deal, things at Liverpool have been going downhill ever since he renewed his agreement.
To begin, let’s talk about how the Reds have been performing so far this season. The manager of the Merseyside club admitted early on in the campaign that the club was no longer in contention for the championship. Despite the fact that things are gradually but surely getting better, this squad does not appear to be the same dominant force it was in the latter part of the 2010s.
Secondly. There is a lot of behind-the-scenes uncertainty at Liverpool at the moment.
Julian Ward has decided to leave the club at the conclusion of the current season, which will leave a significant hole in the recruitment team. Additionally, FSG is now actively looking to sell the football club as well.
Some fans may view the departure of FSG as a good thing for the club, but let’s not forget that Jurgen Klopp has always had a positive relationship with the club’s owners. Furthermore, The Athletic recently reported that the FSG vision was a primary motivating factor behind Klopp signing his new contract.
Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, there is a possibility that Klopp will soon have the opportunity to take his dream job.
In point of fact, Germany has just been eliminated from the World Cup in the group stage, and in the wake of such a humiliating loss, it is hard not to think that Hansi Flick will soon be relieved of his responsibilities.
Klopp is a German by nationality, and he has made no secret of the fact that he has aspirations to manage the German national team in the future.
After Joachim Low stepped down as national team coach the previous year, Jurgen Klopp was questioned about the vacancy, and he didn’t try to hide the fact that he has ambitions to fill the role someday.
He stated that there is no way to determine whether or not the position of national coach would be an interesting one. “Without a doubt, that would be a very significant honor; however, now is not the appropriate time.”
Last year, it was a question of timing; however, now that FSG and Ward are leaving and Liverpool is struggling on the pitch, Klopp might be tempted to take the job of head coach of Germany.
Even though the likelihood of it happening is still quite low, it does appear as though Jurgen Klopp’s departure from Liverpool is now a little more likely than it was the day before.
