Huge shocking news to the footballing world as Jurgen Klopp has decided to leave the club at the end of the 2023/24 season. His contract was running until 2026, but he has confirmed he is stepping away from his role as he is "running out of energy".

The German tactician took the Reds' charge in October 2015 and at the very first press conference, he promised to the fans that he will win everything for the club and he did win everything. Not only the trophies, but the faith of Liverpool's fans. Jurgen Klopp went toe to toe with Pep Guardiola's side every season despite not having so much funds like Man City.

He has already won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup triumphs during his time on Merseyside. The Reds are also pushing for four trophies this season as they are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and in the final of the Carabao Cup against Chelsea.

"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," he said on Liverpool's website.

"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 would have to announce it at one point, but I am 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," He further added.

FSG president Mike Gordon said, "First and foremost, on behalf of John Henry and Tom Werner, I would like to state our profound appreciation for Jurgen. We will be hugely saddened to lose not just a manager of such calibre, but a person and leader for whom we have enormous respect, gratitude, and affection. At the same time, we fully respect his wishes and the reasons why he has decided the current season will be his last at Liverpool."

"The incredible achievements of the intervening years speak for themselves, so too does the joy that Jurgen and his team have brought to all of us supporters. His many accomplishments will never be taken for granted. To appropriate an adage synonymous with another Liverpool managerial great, Jurgen Klopp 'made the people happy' and we have total confidence he will continue to do so until his eventual departure," he added.

"It is a testament to Jurgen's unstinting professionalism and ongoing commitment to the best interests of Liverpool FC that his decision was arrived at in a way that allows for business as usual to be maintained for the remainder of his tenure while simultaneously creating an opportunity for us to prepare for the future."

"Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to place on record our gratitude to Jurgen for everything he has done and continues to do for Liverpool Football Club. Thank you, Jurgen. When the time comes, you will never walk alone," he concluded.
