Liverpool legend Barnes: Klopp will see out his contract

Liverpool legend John Barnes does not believe Jurgen Klopp will walk out on the club.

Many fans are concerned that Klopp may move on this summer after a disastrous 2020-2021 campaign.

However, Barnes believes the German manager will want to replicate the success of the previous seasons before he departs.

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."
