Jurgen Klopp has announced that he will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2023-24 season. Assistant managers Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz, as well as elite development coach Vitor Matos, will also vacate their positions.

Klopp will depart having so far won six major trophies in his eight-and-a-half years at Anfield. His current Liverpool team are top of the Premier League, in the Carabao Cup final, and still in the Europa League and FA Cup.

Klopp, one of the greatest managers in Liverpool FC history, said: “I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it.

“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take."
