Jurgen Klopp has admitted it would be a ‘big honour’ to remain on Merseyside for the long-term.

The manager began today’s pre-match press conference by discussing his long term future at the club.

“I like being here but it doesn’t mean that I want to bother people when we are not successful with my presence,” he said.

“I know how it is. We have to develop, improve, and have to do a lot of positive things in the future. If that works, for me it would be an honour to stay here for a long time.

“But I know the business well enough, that it all depends on how successful we are, and how big the steps we make are.

“I’m turning 50 this year if somebody thinks I should [retire] already then tell me. If it’s a long period here then it was successful, because that’s the only possibility to stay here for the long term.”

The 49-year-old hinted earlier this week that he could end his managerial career with the Reds, and that he is fully committed to long-term projects.

“There is a not insignificant chance I will have coached three clubs. It is always quite easy for me to fully commit to what I am doing because they are often long-term projects.”

“If I fulfil my contract with Liverpool, then there is a good chance I will have won something here.

“I could be in an uncomfortable situation if we do not win anything. People expect Liverpool to win trophies.”
