According to reports, Liverpool players learned of Jurgen Klopp’s departure only hours before the club’s announcement.

The German has won every major trophy at Anfield, including Premier League and Champions League titles in 2020 and 2019 respectively.

Liverpool announced Klopp’s imminent departure earlier today.

But according to the Telegraph, players were kept in the dark until hours before the news was made public.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is leaving Anfield after a wonderful eight-and-a-half year tenure


Klopp has already revealed he told Liverpool he wanted to leave back in October because he was ‘losing energy’ due to work difficulties.

However, he has always managed to get along well with his players during his time at Anfield.

Big players like Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah have been recruited under the German’s watch.

And they, like the rest of the world, were taken by surprise by Klopp’s departure.

Many names are in the race for the post of the next manager of the club.

Xabi Alonso is an option, with the Spaniard previously spending five years at the club between 2004 and 2009.

Alonso was part of the Reds team that won the Champions League in 2005, as well as the FA Cup 12 months later.

He has done wonders at Bayer Leverkusen this season, with the German giants currently top the Bundesliga table ahead of defending champions Bayern Munich.

And many see Alonso as a strong contender to take over, particularly due to his close ties to the club.

Zinedine Zidane, Roberto De Zerbi and even Steven Gerrard have emerged as possible candidates.

But, for now, Liverpool’s focus is on finishing the season on a high note.

The Merseyside giants are top of the Premier League table, five points ahead of Manchester City with a game more to play.

They have reached the final of the Carabao Cup, where the Reds will face Chelsea.

And they are also having strong performances in the Europa League and FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp has told GB News he sympathizes with Klopp after the 56-year-old admitted he was ‘losing energy’.

“It’s a well-paid, wonderful job, don’t get me wrong”, said Redknapp.

“But the pressure is constant. When you’re at a club with a lot of fans, you want to perform well for them.

“When it’s not going well. it’s a nightmare. Klopp is probably a little tired and perhaps his energy and drive are lacking.

“You will never believe it to see the smile on their faces.

“He still seems like he’s loving every minute of it, so it’s a big shock.”
