Former Liverpool Player Makes Jurgen Klopp Anfield Return Claim

After leaving his role as Liverpool manager at the end of the season, Jurgen Klopp intends to take a year-long break from football.

However, former Reds player Ryan Babel claims that Klopp will return to the game sooner than expected.

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a managerial comeback “within six months” following his departure from Liverpool at the end of the season.

Klopp is set to step down as Liverpool boss after almost nine years at the helm, having stated that he “will not manage a club or country for at least a year”. He said: “If you ask me now if I will ever manage again, I would say no.

“But you don’t know obviously as I’ve never had this situation. But I do know definitely I will never manage a different club in England than Liverpool. It is impossible. I will find something else to do. But I will not manage a club or country for at least a year.”

However, former Reds star Ryan Babel believes Klopp will “get bored” and want to return much sooner. ” Jurgen Klopp will probably go away to a lot of holiday destinations, drink some beer and spend some quality time with his family,” Babel exclusively told Ladbrokes Fanzone.

“He’ll try to release all the stress, in a good environment with his family, before he inevitably goes back to work. Judging from the outside, and knowing Jurgen Klopp, he’s far from done. I think he’ll get bored within six months and he’ll want to work again.

“The question, then, is, where does he go? There are not many teams, in my opinion, who deserve Jurgen Klopp. He’s a coach who needs to be accepted for who he is. He’s someone who needs time to completely express his way of playing.

“So, with that being said, while I would love to see him be successful with a team like Real Madrid, we know that Real Madrid are not a team who are going to give him two or three years to eventually show the football that he wants to play.

“So, I don’t think Real Madrid deserve him. Even a team like Bayern, you know, they don’t have a lot of patience for managers. There are rumours that he might coach the German national team… I don’t know about that. But I think he’ll definitely surprise a lot of people.”

Klopp has expressed his admiration for Slot’s style, stating: ” I like the way his team play football.

“All the things I hear about him as a guy, a good guy. Some people I know know him, I don’t know him yet. Some people tell me that he is a really good guy.

“I like that a lot. Good coach, good guy. Looking forward for the club if he is the solution or the man. I’m more than happy.”
