Mon 15 March 2021 | 11:35

The former Liverpool star believes that the German tactician is going to lead his side to another Premier League trophy and will remain at Anfield.

According to

John Barnes

, should

Jurgen Klopp

stay with

Liverpool

for a “long time”, he will deliver another top-flight crown, notwithstanding the speculations surrounding his future.

The reigning

Premier League

champions have been struggling with back-to-back injuries and other problems during a tough 2020-21 season.

Barnes told

Goal

“If Jurgen Klopp stays at Liverpool long term, then I'm sure he’ll win another Premier League title with Liverpool.

“If he’s still there next season, he will definitely be challenging with Manchester City.

“His contract runs until 2024, so we still have three more years of Klopp in the Premier League for him to have the chance of winning another Premier League title for Liverpool.” 

The Reds’ manager did not talk about any decisions regarding his departure from Anfield.

Klopp has been referring to how he needs to add some recruitments to build up his squad in the summer transfer window.

The Germany national team manager Joachim Low admitted that he is going to depart in the summer and Klopp has been speculated to be his successor. The Liverpool boss, however, stated that he is focused on Liverpool at the moment.

Barnes added:

“Liverpool fans won’t be worried about rumours of Jurgen Klopp going for the Germany job in the summer after the Euros.

“The manager has already said he has no interest in it, so we must take his word for it.

“Maybe it will happen at the end of his contract or maybe at the end of next season, but what’s for sure is Klopp will not want to leave Liverpool under these circumstances.

“Even if next season the team puts up a better challenge and don’t win anything, I don’t think that he feels that, as things aren’t going well, he has to leave the club.

“The manager will feel like he has unfinished business, even if he wanted to leave because you wouldn’t want to go under these circumstances.”
