Klopp's Agent Claims Boss Could Choose To Leave Liverpool For Bizarre Reason

Klopp's Agent Claims Boss Could Choose To Leave Liverpool For Bizarre Reason

Jurgen Klopp has made Liverpool into a real contender on the domestic and continental stage and the club's fans dread to think of the day he may leave the club.

While the German's contract does not run out until the summer of 2022, Liverpool's owners FSG are keen to extend that arrangement. You can't really blame them, with keeping Jurgen Klopp at Anfield perhaps the most important ingredient in ensuring long-term success.

The former Dortmund manager has been hesitant to commit to a new deal as of yet and has even hinted he may take a break from football after the end of his current pact.

Klopp had a seven year tenure at each his two previous clubs, and with 2022 marking the seventh anniversary of his arrival in Merseyside, some have speculated he may choose to move on. According to his agent, one of the main reasons to do so could be the weather.

Marc Kosicke told Goal that his client could choose to move on at the end of his current deal as he is tired of the dour weather in his adopted country.

Jurgen's contract is still valid until 2022 and it is an open secret that the club would like to extend.

We still have a little time for that. We must wait and see how everything develops and whether climate change will bring better weather to England or only to Germany.

One should not underestimate [the bad weather]. I remember that in November or December, Liverpool first asked for a contract extension. I said: 'Let's wait'.

"Ulla (Klopp's wife) and Jurgen get up in the morning and it's dark. When they meet again in the evening, it is also dark or it is grey and there is drizzle.

During the winter break in Germany, if the weather is really bad, the clubs go on vacation for two weeks, then come back and fly directly to the training camp in the sun for several days.

During this time, the coaches in England sometimes have to prepare for up to 13 games. They are already exhausted and it's not so easy.
