Klopp: I want to end my managerial career with Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he would love to finish his managerial career with Liverpool. 

Klopp, though, only wants to continue being manager for another 10 years as he doesn’t want to be "sitting on the bench at 60". 

Next week, the 49-year-old will have been at the helm of the Reds for year and he is hoping there are more good years to come during his time at Anfield. 

"I certainly will (return to Germany) to live, but I don't know if I will be back there as a coach yet," Klopp told Germany's RedaktionsNetwerk. "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. And, 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."

Meanwhile, Klopp and his side will be aiming to secure their fifth consecutive win when they travel to Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea on Saturday. 

Swansea lost to Manchester City 3-1 last weekend and even though they have only won one Premier League game so far, Klopp is refusing to underestimate them. 

"This season we have time to analyse all the opponents properly and they play much better than four points look like," he said. "It's a good football-playing side with a clear plan, with different options in their style of play, good defending. If you want, it's a typical Premier League problem.

"You analyse an opponent and you think, 'Okay, that's quite strong'. They were unlucky in this situation, lucky in this situation for the opponent. We will be prepared for this game and no one should be in doubt that we know about the quality of Swansea."
