What a job Jurgen Klopp has done

7 truly remarkable stats which sum up Jurgen Klopp’s incredible Liverpool tenure

Jurgen Klopp has announced his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season and we couldn’t help but reflect on the truly remarkable job he has done.

Since taking over in 2015, Klopp has managed to win seven trophies and he has completely reinvigorated the club along the way.

Klopp’s decision to step away from the club has come as a shock to many, particularly with Liverpool doing so well in the Premier League right now.

However, the German boss has admitted that he is running low on energy and this could be the perfect time to leave Liverpool on a high note.

Klopp told the official Liverpool website: “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.

“It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again.

“After the years we had together and after all the time we spent together and after all the things we went through together, the respect grew for you, the love grew for you and the least I owe you is the truth – and that is the truth.”
