Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will exit Anfield when his current contract expires and return to Mainz.
Jurgen Klopp is hoping to finish the remaining four years of his contract with Premier League champions Liverpool before making a return to his native Germany.
In December 2019, the ex-Dortmund boss Klopp put pen to paper on a contract extension that is set to expire in 2024, and while speaking in an interview with SWR Sport, the 53-year-old revealed he would like to return to Mainz – where he started his coaching career.
"Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz," he said when asked about returning to Germany.
When pushed further on how it affects his plans at Anfield, the German replied: "Four years in Liverpool [and then] do nothing for a year.
"But in five years, the world can look very different."
Liverpool return to action against Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday and they'll be hoping to bounce back to winning ways after their 1-1 home draw with Sean Dyche's Burnley.
"It will be different, but we will have a bit more space [preparation time], which is good," he told the club's official website.
"We have one more day. The last seven days now were really incredible, three games in pretty much a week is unbelievable in that moment.
"But it is how it is and now we have one day more and then hopefully we can completely recover.
"We will and then we go again against Arsenal, which will be an interesting one."
