Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has insisted he will be taking a sabbatical when he leaves the club, regardless of when that happens.

The Reds boss has a contract at Anfield until 2024 and has made it clear on more than one occasion he plans to leave at that point.

He has also shared his plans to go on a sabbatical from football after leaving more than once also, having done the same thing when he left Borussia Dortmund in 2015.

Those plans were recently brought into question, though, with the Liverpool boss having been heavily linked with the Germany job after current manager Joachim Low revealed he will be leaving after the European Championships this summer.

Klopp has been named as one of the potential replacements, despite him insisting he will not be leaving Liverpool at this moment in time.

Of course, that is a situation that could change in the future, but he insists even if his time on Merseyside ends sooner than expected, he will be following through with his plans for a break.

“The sabbatical will definitely happen, definitely,” he told SportBILD.

“If we don’t win any more Premier League games and the thinking of the owners’ changes, I’ll take a year off. No ifs and buts.

“This is clearly an agreement with my family – and probably with my family doctor as well.

“One thing is clear: When Liverpool ends, there will definitely be a year off. Nobody needs to call, not after four months and not after six either. No matter who tries it: It’s a one-year break!”
