Erik ten Hag has reacted to the news that Jurgen Klopp will leave Liverpool at the end of the season.

Jurgen Klopp has spent nine years as manager of Liverpool, where he has won the Premier League and Champions League, alongside other domestic cup trophies.

Liverpool have been a thoroughly better side than Manchester United since Klopp took charge of the team in 2015, battling it out with Manchester City to be the best team in the country.

Erik ten Hag has now reacted to the news that Klopp will be stepping down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season.

“It’s no good for the Premier League,” Ten Hag told reporters on Friday afternoon.

“So he has made an era there, he built the club, he brought the club back where they belong, so congrats on that. He has done an amazing job in Liverpool.”

Speaking further, Ten Hag says he understands and agrees with Klopp’s reasoning for stepping down, which the German manager said was due to a lack of energy.

“I can understand that. Nine years is a long time. I think it’s a period by building up, achieving targets but also I think setbacks and going into difficult periods, the Premier League is very intense, the combination with European club football.

When you’re there nine years, it’s a long period, and I can understand he is running out of energy, and that is one of his arguments to step down.”
