Klopp: Social media will stop me staying with Liverpool long-term

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp can't see himself staying long-term at Anfield.

Klopp is a popular manager on Merseyside, and has a contract that keeps him employed at Liverpool until 2022 - should everything continue going to plan, of course.

"No, no way, no chance," said Klopp, when asked if he sees himself at the club for the next 20-plus years.

"I respect Arsene and Sir Alex a lot for what they did for football and stuff like this but the game changed a lot and especially these kind of things changed a lot.

"I think the first 15 years for these two guys was like a holiday in comparison to what they had in the last 15 years of their job.

"It's all social media and stuff - I don't read it - but it has influence from all sides, things that I don't really understand. I am 50 and feel young in all things in life, but I am too old for this.

"In 20 years time I will be 70, and I can guarantee I'm not here."
