“It means that a season starts and you already plan a lot for the next season.

“When we sat there together and talked about potential signings, the next summer camp and whether we could go anywhere, the thought came, ‘I’m not sure I belong here anymore’ and that brought me to myself. Caught by surprise. I start thinking about it clearly.

“It didn’t start [then], but certainly last season was an extremely difficult season and there were moments when at other clubs perhaps the decision would have been, ‘Well, thanks very much for everything but maybe we should part ways here, or call it quits here. Should be abolished. Obviously this did not happen here.

“It was very, very, very important for me to help get this team back on track. That’s just what I was thinking about.

“When I realized very early on that it happened, that this is a really good team with huge potential and super age groups, super characters and all that stuff, then I was able to start thinking about myself again and This was the result.

“This is not what I want [do]This is what I think is 100 percent correct.

However, Klopp does not want any distractions from his exit and has urged Liverpool to ‘go for it’ as they look to win an unprecedented quadruple.

“We will have a moment, maybe the last matchday here or somewhere else – I mean in other countries or other competitions,” he said.

“There’s enough time to do these kinds of things. Let’s really get on with it now. The outside world wants to use this decision, laugh about it, want to harass us.”

“We are Liverpool, we have been through tough things together. And you went through hard things before me.

“Let’s build on this strength. It’ll be really cool. Let’s squeeze everything out of this season and have one more thing to smile about when we look back in the future.”

Fenway Sports Group Chairman Mike Gordon said: “First and foremost, on behalf of John Henry and Tom Werner, I want to express our deep appreciation for Jurgen.

“Needless to say that we will be deeply saddened to lose not only a manager of such caliber, but also a man and leader for whom we have great respect, gratitude and affection. At the same time, we look forward to his wishes. And completely respect the reasons why he has decided that the current season will be his last at Liverpool.

“In keeping with Jürgen’s expressed wishes, we will save the extensive tribute for a more appropriate time, but nevertheless, we would be remiss if we did not use this opportunity to confirm that his appointment marks the beginning of our time as owners. One of the greatest blessings, it would be our mistake.

“The incredible achievements of the intervening years speak for themselves, as does the joy that Jurgen and his team have brought to all of us supporters. His many achievements will never be taken for granted. To appropriate a saying synonymous with another Liverpool managerial great, Jurgen Klopp ‘made people happy’ and we are confident that he will continue to do so until his final departure.”
