The former Liverpool star does not believe that Klopp will leave Liverpool.

Liverpool

legend John Barnes believes Jurgen Klopp will stay at the club until the end of his contract and there is no reason for him to leave.

The German coach, who has won the Champions League and Premier League for Liverpool, has not performed well this season and his team has not been able to live up to expectations. Rumors are circulating that his partnership with Liverpool could end at the end of the season, but Barnes believes these rumors are unfounded and Klopp will stay at Liverpool until the end of his contract.

He told

Goal

: "

Well, it's very much like the players, I can't see why Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t be there next season!

“Having said that, football being football, managers do sometimes go on a very regular basis. However, I genuinely think that if Jurgen Klopp is not coming back for the next season, it won’t be because Liverpool didn’t win the league.

“Klopp has created a great, consistent team with Liverpool - with a team sprit at an all-time high. Yes, the last few months haven’t been perfect, but I do think Covid and all the issues and uncertainties this virus has brought upon us, it is no wonder players may not perform in the best possible way. But I don’t think a difficult spell would result in Klopp leaving. 

“Klopp loves Liverpool and I do believe that he will stay to the end of his contract.”
