Liverpool: Klopp outlines Anfield exit plan
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp, who is contracted to the Premier League champions until 2024, has every intention of seeing out his term at Anfield.
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp says he plans to see out the remaining four years of his contract at the English champions before returning to his native Germany.
Klopp penned a contract extension running until 2024 at Anfield in December, before guiding the Reds to a dominant first Premier League title triumph.
"Four years in Liverpool [and then] do nothing for a year" - Klopp's plan
In an interview with SWR Sport, the 53-year-old said he intends to return to Mainz – where he launched his decorated coaching career – at the end of his time in elite football.
"Definitely to live, after my career. Most likely even to Mainz," he said when asked about returning to Germany.
When pressed on where that fitted in to his plans on Merseyside, he replied: "Four years in Liverpool [and then] do nothing for a year. But in five years, the world can look very different."

Liverpool face Arsenal in midweek after Burnley draw
Liverpool are back in action against Arsenal away on Wednesday looking to return to winning ways after a 1-1 home draw with Burnley.
"It will be different, but we will have a bit more space [preparation time], which is good," he told the club's official website.
"We have one more day. The last seven days now were really incredible, three games in pretty much a week is unbelievable in that moment.
"But it is how it is and now we have one day more and then hopefully we can completely recover. We will and then we go again against Arsenal, which will be an interesting one."
