Jurgen Klopp may consider retirement following Liverpool departure due to obstacles in securing next job.

Jurgen Klopp is set to assume a prominent role in managing the soccer team until the conclusion of the 2026 World Cup. He recently announced that he would be leaving Liverpool after an eight-and-a-half year tenure, expressing his intention to take a year-long break from the sport. This decision seemingly dismisses the possibility of him taking over the national team in the next 12 months.

Despite being considered for the Germany job, Klopp himself hinted at potential retirement, and Julian Nagelsmann has extended his deal with the German Football Association. Additionally, Thomas Tuchel will be leaving the club in the summer, and primary target Xabi Alonso has committed to another year with Bayer Leverkusen. There is some speculation about potential replacements, including Roberto de Zerbi and a potential return for Flick.

However, the likelihood of convincing Klopp to abandon his sabbatical and take on a new role this summer appears remote. He has a history of cutting short his breaks from football and has confirmed his plans for a major family-based project starting from June 2024 onwards.
