Klopp broke his silence after the Liverpool video interview of the German manager confirmed his decision. Klopp noted that his decision is the right one for him and hopes the Liverpool fans accept his decision. He explains by saying he has no regrets and won't change his mind even if Liverpool wins all four trophies the team is competing for.

Klopp says, "You realize yourself, you're not a young rabbit anymore, and don't jump as high as you did. It was not that I thought about it on purpose, it just happened, then I started thinking about it and this club, with all the super things we have, this club needs a top manager."

Klopp was asked about his replacement and if he would have a say in who Liverpool brings in to coach next season. Klopp says, "Why should I? In this world, you have a few faces who do an incredible job you don't see too often. It looks like I do all the work, but I can't..... So many people work here with only one idea: to find the best thing for Liverpool. The last thing they need is advice from the old man saying ‘oh take him or whatever’. I wish for the future this club the very, very, very best, but right now, I’m still here."

Some of the few names that are linked to being the next Liverpool coach are Xabi Alonso, Roberto De Zerbi, and Zinedine Zidane. Alonso and De Zerbi commented on Klopp's announcement and wished him the best. They both are also concentrated in their respective clubs and did not comment on the potential Liverpool job.
