“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff, I love everything,” said the 56-year-old, who took charge at Liverpool in 2015.
“That I still take this decision probably shows you that I’m convinced it’s the one I have to take. It is that I’m – how can I say this? – that I’m running out of energy.”
Klopp, who led Liverpool into the final of the League Cup on Wednesday, informed the club’s hierarchy that he would end his eight and a half years at Anfield at the end of the current campaign.
The German joined Liverpool in October 2015 and has won the Champions League, Premier League, Club World Cup, FA Cup, League Cup and Super Cup as well as the Community Shield during his time in charge.
