    Klopp says he will quit the game in a decade or so

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he wants to retire by the age of sixty.

    The German boss did add that he wants to win some trophies with the club before calling it a day, however.

    Klopp, who is forty-nine years old at present, moved from Borussia Dortmund to Anfield a year ago and recently signed a new six year contract.

    And that would take him into his mid-fifties, so he could either stick around at Liverpool for the rest of his career or have one last challenge before calling it a day – but he revealed he does not know if that could be in his homeland.

    “There will come a day where I decide it has been enough.” he told RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland.

    I would say it is very, very unlikely that I will still be coaching at the age of sixty.

    “I will definitely return to Germany to live there, but I do not know whether I will return to Germany as a coach.

    “I have no plans to annoy someone who does not want me around with my presence at the end of my managerial career.

    “And if Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool turn out to be the only three clubs I have coached at the end my career, at least it has been with great clubs.

    “I knew it would be hard to reject Liverpool if they came knocking. I have always liked Liverpool.

    “This is just how I have always imagined football should be, extremely emotional.

    “It is now all about developing this club and ensure we come in a position we can win trophies again. Everything we win on the way to that stage is an added bonus.

    “That’s the plan.” he finished.
