Jurgen Klopp, one of the world’s leading managers, will leave Liverpool at the end of the season, an announcement that surprised many, as he has a contract that runs through 2026 and was expected to lead the club for several seasons to come.
The stresses of coaching at the top level are not half as high as they should be, and a lot of energy is required to lead the team.
Erik ten Hag, who also has a long history at the helm of Manchester United, expressed his sympathy for the manager, who explained his decision by saying that he could no longer handle the heat.
“I can understand that,”
“Nine years is a long time. I think it’s a period by building up and achieving targets, but also I think setbacks and going into difficult periods. The Premier League is very intense.”
“The combination with European club football, when you’re there nine years it’s a long period and I can understand he is running out of energy, and that is one of his arguments to step down.”
“It’s no good for the Premier League,”
“So he has made an era there, he built the club, he brought the club back where they belong, so congratulations on that. He has done an amazing job in Liverpool.”
