Whenever a coach at a big club wobbles somewhere, Jürgen Klopp will probably automatically come into conversation in the future. The current coach of Liverpool FC should have many options. Klopp comments on this at a press conference.

Liverpool FC’s star players have initially reacted calmly to the announcement of their coach Jürgen Klopp’s resignation. “The players didn’t ask much. We have a strong connection, we are professionals,” Klopp reported. He had previously announced that he would terminate his contract, which was actually valid until mid-2026, at the end of the season.

“It’s not as emotional as it will be when the end comes,” said Klopp. Letting the players and fans know was the most important thing for him. “The players are in a good mood, it was just an announcement,” said Klopp.

He expressly does not rule out the end of his career after his departure in the summer. “Whatever happens in the future, I don’t know yet,” the 56-year-old said during a press conference on Friday afternoon. He had previously announced that he would terminate his contract, which was actually valid until mid-2026, at the end of the season. What is certain is that he will not take on a coaching job in football for a year.

“No club, no country for next year,” said Klopp, who confirmed that he would never coach another English club again. “I can promise that,” said the former Bundesliga coach of FSV Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. This also applies if he “no longer had anything to eat”.

Klopp’s statements contradict initial speculation that he could be a candidate for a possible national coach search in the summer. Incumbent Julian Nagelsmann’s contract initially only runs until after the home European Championships in the summer.

After Klopp’s moving resignation announcement, the automatisms of the football business will inevitably also take effect for the cult coach. As soon as a coach at a big club or national team wobbles, the name Klopp will inevitably be mentioned. He has no shortage of options.

National coach: Julian Nagelsmann’s contract with the German Football Association runs until after the home European Championships in 2024. What happens next for him after that remains unclear. Since there is no major tournament in 2025, it would not be a problem if Klopp took a break. His long-time assistant Peter Krawietz could possibly start work and lay the foundations for Klopp’s football.

Borussia Dortmund: Since leaving in 2015, BVB has been looking for a Klopp clone. Thomas Tuchel, Peter Bosz, Peter Stöger, Marco Rose, Lucien Favre – they all failed to reproduce the successful era. In Edin Terzić it was believed that they had found a long-standing coach, but recently the 41-year-old has also been criticized. Nevertheless, it is difficult to imagine Klopp’s comeback.

Real Madrid: At Liverpool FC, Klopp has helped one of the most important clubs in the world regain its glory. What is to come now internationally? You inevitably get stuck with Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti only extended his contract there until 2026 and initiated the change very successfully. But if Klopp is available, that should also appeal to Real President Florentino Pérez.

Saudi-Arabian: In the summer, clubs from Saudi Arabia bought a number of top stars, practically showering them with money. Jürgen Klopp as a coach would be very popular worldwide and would certainly be worth a huge sum. But the Swabian doesn’t seem like someone who can forget about things like the human rights situation in the kingdom for a gigantic salary. Especially since he certainly doesn’t need the money.

FC Bayern Munich: That left Bayern. Under coach Thomas Tuchel, the Munich team are currently only second in the league and were eliminated from the cup early on; There is also always criticism of the style of play. If Bayern see the opportunity for Klopp, they may take it. Klopp himself once told “The Telegraph” that he could have gone to Munich several times, but that wouldn’t have appealed to him. Maybe that’s changing now.
