Jürgen Klopp’s wife has already decided what he will do after Liverpool summer exit

With suggestions from his wife, Jürgen Klopp has already decided what he will do after his departure from Liverpool. The German is set to take a break from management.

Klopp announced in January that he would be stepping down from his role after nearly nine years at the helm.

Expecting a pause of at least a year after over 20 years of near-continuous management, the German’s wife Ulla has already charted out his short-term future.

With just over a month left of Klopp’s time at Anfield, it seems his post-Liverpool plans have been sorted, courtesy of his wife. She was instrumental in convincing him to renew his contract with the Reds in 2022.

Instead of joining another club or taking charge of the Germany national team, Ulla hopes her husband will spend more time at home. And she has lined up cooking and dance classes for him once his stint at Anfield ends.

“There’s a few things Ulla [Klopp’s wife] told me — I have to learn cooking and a dance class. I said you don’t want me to have a break because if I do that I will start working after four weeks again! ” Klopp revealed in his chat with Sky News.

“I should learn cooking probably so I can at least make some breakfast or whatever. This will be the first time in my life where I don’t have a real idea of what I will do and that’s exactly what I want.

“During COVID I did scrambled eggs but after that I forgot it again. I was raised in the Black Forest with two sisters, the only reason I knew where the kitchen was because the smell came from there! I’m pretty useless in private life.”

Before he shifts his attention to domestic duties, Klopp has his eyes set on potential glory in the Premier League and Europa League. Despite slim odds for European success, the German is determined to drive his squad forward.

“We talk and remind the boys of the things we are really good at because we are really good. That’s the reason we are where we are, we just have to show that every day and that’s now the situation,” Klopp remarked.

“That’s not new, for some the situation might be a bit new but that’s when the more experienced players have to step in and lead the pack on the pitch. For me I’ve had enough parades and parties, it was never about that and it will never be (about that).

“But I would love to give the people the opportunity to celebrate something special and I think it would be right as well. I’m still happy we are still in that fight. I want to make sure we really go for it.

“Sometimes life and football are the same you need a proper smash to realize why you do what you do and we got that smash and we will use it. What’s important is that the Liverpool people are happy with what we did that’s the only important thing.”
