Jurgen Klopp Confirms Return to Liverpool, Eyes Date in Autumn 2024

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool return

Jurgen Klopp has already earmarked a potential return date to Anfield. Just minutes after his final game as Liverpool’s manager, the 56-year-old German coach began discussing his plans to return. Klopp, who announced his departure in January, concluded his tenure with an emotional farewell on the final Premier League matchday. Despite stepping down, Klopp won’t be taking on another managerial role soon. He intends to spend time with his family and enjoy Euro 2024 as a fan in Germany.

However, when the 2024/25 season begins, Klopp might miss the thrill of matches and the training ground atmosphere. He’s committed to a break after nearly a decade at Liverpool, but Klopp has revealed he’ll return to Merseyside this Autumn to watch a match, with his successor Arne Slot now in charge.

“It was an absolutely incredible and wonderful time,” Klopp reflected. “I loved it. My family was on the pitch. I will come back occasionally as a supporter and I’m fine with that. Not for the first game of the season – maybe after the second international break!”

According to the FIFA men’s international match calendar, breaks are scheduled for September 1-9, October 6-14, and November 10-18, 2024, for Nations League football.

When asked about his plans post-Liverpool, Klopp joked, “Packing probably!”

Klopp signed off with a 2-0 victory over Wolves and a heartfelt speech at Anfield. Fans stayed long after the match, celebrating the man who brought them a Premier League title and a Champions League win.

“Job done,” Klopp reflected. “I love them all, everything about the club, but it’s time for me to go. It’s not burning behind me, so that gives me a good feeling. I know I’ll come back. I’m a Liverpool supporter and I love that.

“Today was wonderful. I want to thank everybody. I loved how we said goodbye to the staff, how the players did. Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager is so much more than Jurgen Klopp – I alone would have done nothing.”
