Liverpool journalist Joel Rabinowitz has been sharing his thoughts on Reds manager Jurgen Klopp and his future in regards to his managerial career.
On the subject of Klopp, whose current deal at Anfield is set to expire in 2024, and his future with the Reds, which has been called into question in recent weeks, Rabinowitz had this to say on the matter.
He said: “I think he is one who will just want to at least see his contract out at Liverpool, and I do struggle to see him moving on to another really high-profile job after this, I have to say, I think he’ll be close to 60, I think, by then in 2024.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to be honest if this is his last job in management full-stop, and he goes into something else whether it be punditry or another kind of football director-type role. I’m not sure, but I think now I’ve had some distance and a couple of good results, you can see where things might get back on track next season and beyond.
“I’m a lot calmer than I was about his future.”
Klopp joined Liverpool back in October 2015 after his previous spell with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. Since taking over at the Merseyside club, the German has taken charge of 305 matches across all competitions with the Reds, winning 182, drawing 65 and losing 58 along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Joel Rabinowitz’s comments on Klopp and his future…
As well as the impressive win record he has picked up at Liverpool, the fact that Klopp has also guided the club to a Champions League trophy and a Premier League title since his arrival in 2015, it would be safe to assume that the Liverpool fans would be happy to see Klopp continue to take charge of the club.
Are you confident Klopp will see out his current contract at Liverpool?
And given how the 53-year-old has recently come out and said that he intends on seeing out his current contract at Liverpool before then leaving the club after what would be a nine-year stint in charge of the club, it’s easy to see why Rabinowitz is feeling calm about Klopp not leaving anytime soon, though it would certainly be a big decision if he wanted to call it a day after his time at Anfield.
