Former Liverpool player responds to Tim Sherwood’s claims about Jurgen Klopp’s future at the club

Former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison disagrees with Tim Sherwood on Jurgen Klopp's future at Liverpool following a tough 2022/23 season.

The Reds have struggled this season and are currently fighting to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

Klopp recently discussed his future as manager of Liverpool. The German is under contract with the club until 2026 and has stated that he will not leave despite the difficult circumstances.

However, Sherwood stated in October that Klopp could leave the club at the end of the season.

The former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager explained why he believes Klopp may leave Liverpool.

“I don’t think Jürgen Klopp is there next season,” said Sherwood on The Kelly and Wrighty show in October.

“I think there’s a conversation to be had. I’m not sure Jürgen picks them up from where they are and makes them challengers again. I really don’t, history says he doesn’t do that”.

“He’s very good and drives teams all the way, but it’s going to be a fight to get in the top four now. If they miss out on the top four it’s a rebuild, a total rebuild”.

“I don’t think they’ll sack him but there will be a conversation where both parties agree that Jürgen has taken them as far as he can and they go for a new challenge”.

“That’s just my hunch when I look at him and the team.”

Hutchison responded to those remarks by explaining why Klopp’s former team, Borussia Dortmund, demonstrated why Liverpool and the German will not part ways.

“That’s not going to happen” Hutchison told Premier League Productions via HITC.

“It won’t happen. Jurgen Klopp has said it”.

“When Jurgen Klopp was at Dortmund and he went through the same sort of results, and he left, there were loads of mitigating circumstances”.

“They had sold Lewandowski. They sold Mario Gotze, Kagawa and Nuri Sahin. It was different”.

“When Jurgen Klopp left, or when they sacked him, their chief executive, Hans-Joachim Watzke said ‘the biggest mistake we made in Germany was sacking Jurgen Klopp – what we should have done is sack half the team”.

“Because they knew how special Klopp was.”
