The actual cause behind Jurgen Klopp’s departure from Liverpool, The announcement in January that Jurgen Klopp would be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season surprised Liverpool supporters, but the German coach had good cause to make a move. 

Jurgen Klopp departs from the club with the knowledge that Arne Slot is leading Liverpool to success.

When news broke in January of the German’s abrupt departure from Anfield, it shocked the football community. Nevertheless, the Express claims Klopp had reasonable grounds for his ostensibly hasty choice.

His Reds team was still in the hunt for a quadruple then, but they were competing on all four fronts. According to The Telegraph, Klopp was holding off on leaving Liverpool until they were contending for titles again, in addition to his admission that he was “running out of energy.”

His concerns about the need for a major reconstruction were allayed by Liverpool’s fantastic start to this season. The team finished the previous campaign in fifth place in the Premier League with no trophies. The knowledge that he could leave the club in a strong position and give them plenty of time to make plans for the future comforted him.

“Last season was kind of a super-difficult season, and there were moments when at other clubs probably the decision would have been, ‘come on, thank you very much for everything, but probably we should split here, or end it here,'” he said in his heartbreaking farewell video. That did not occur here.

“It was essential to me that I could assist in getting this team back on track. All I could think of was that. I started thinking about myself again when I realized relatively early on that it was a fantastic squad with a ton of promise, a super age group, super characters, and all that. It’s merely what I believe to be absolutely correct; it’s not what I want to do.”

Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, and Dominik Szoboszlai were among the astute acquisitions that helped Klopp revitalize Liverpool’s midfield, which had been decimated by the departures of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, and Naby Keita a year prior.

Ryan Gravenberch and other much younger options in the middle of the park will pass down to Slot. The Dutch manager may still have a hectic summer transfer window, though. 

Thiago and Joel Matip’s free-agent departures will probably require Liverpool to make some adjustments. If they decide to sell Mohamed Salah before his contract expires next year, they may have many unfilled expectations because teams in the Saudi Pro League are anticipated to express interest in the 31-year-old once more.
