It's hard to imagine Liverpool fans loving Jurgen Klopp any more.

As the German prepares to celebrate his first anniversary in charge at Anfield, he can look back on a year of huge progress at the club.

The main question when he replaced Brendan Rodgers last October was whether he'd be able to cut it in the Premier League after being such a hit in the Bundesliga, and judging by Liverpool's start to the season, he's easily fulfilling his promise.

Klopp's men look like genuine title contenders as they head to Swansea on Saturday afternoon, so it's no wonder the Merseyside boss is held in such high regard after years of mediocrity.

And what with all the talk surrounding Arsene Wenger's 20 years over at the Emirates, it seemed inevitable that Klopp would be asked what the future holds and whether he'll be in for the long haul like his Arsenal counterpart.

Sadly, it's not going to be. As much as we all love the 49-year-old's frantic touchline celebrations and thrilling brand of pressing football, he has told Germany's RedaktionsNetwerk - as per the Mirror - that he can't imagine still being in the dugout in 10 years time.

Klopp looking ahead 

"I certainly will (return to Germany) to live, but I don't know if I will be back there as a coach yet," he said.

"The day will come when I say, 'thanks, it was a pleasure'.

"It's very, very unlikely that I will still be sitting on the bench when I am 60."

The good news, however, is that he says he would be perfectly happy to retire at Liverpool - so that gives him plenty of time to build a dynasty.

"If at the end of my career I only got to coach Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool, then it will certainly have been three fantastic clubs," he added.
