Manager Jurgen Klopp was in a situation to lay down the helm due to Liverpool’s sluggish performance in the English Premier League (EPL) and a crushing defeat against Real Madrid.
According to England’s ‘Cut Offside’ on the 22nd (local time), Liverpool’s high-ranking officials complained to manager Klopp when they lost 2-5 in the first leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) against Real Madrid on the 21st. Discussed the move for
According to the media, Liverpool’s high-ranking officials judged that the will to win had disappeared within the squad as manager Klopp led the team for a long time. So, in order to create a new atmosphere, we are taking the deadly prescription of changing the director.
Klopp took over at Liverpool in 2015 after working for Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund. He has led Liverpool with three renewals so far this year. His current contract expires in June 2026.

But this season has been sluggish. Realistically, the prospect of advancing to the UCL quarterfinals is bleak. Even in the EPL, it is not easy to obtain the right to participate in the UCL next season, which is given up to 4th place due to a poor performance of 8th place.

Since the UCL 2nd match against Real Madrid is still left, if they win and advance to the quarterfinals, discussions about replacing manager Klopp in Liverpool will also disappear. However, if Liverpool decides to replace Klopp, they are planning to step down in the form of voluntary resignation rather than hardship as a courtesy.
