REVEALED: Klopp and Liverpool have Germany exit agreement

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp's current contract carries an exit clause.

The Independent says Klopp reportedly has a clause in his contract which would see Liverpool help him move back to Germany when he decides to leave the club.

Klopp extended his Liverpool contract to 2024 back in December - representing his longest commitment to one club in his management career

But when the time comes for him to leave, Liverpool have pledged to help Klopp relocate to his native Germany on his own terms if that's what he chooses to do.

Klopp is understood to have a clause in his contract ensuring the Reds will help make his exit as smooth as possible.

Big clubs often help incoming managers to settle into the job by, for example, helping to find them a home and suitable schools for their children.

However, it is very rare for the same help to be in place for when they leave the club - so the reported clause in Klopp's contract is clear evidence of the high esteem in which he is held by Reds chiefs.
