Jurgen Klopp Leaving Liverpool: Liverpool FC released a video from Jurgen Klopp this morning announcing his departure from the club at the end of the current season. "I'm running out of energy," he said. "I cannot do the job again and again and again and again."

I'm gutted. What a revelation Jurgen has been for us. I'm glad we rebuilt our midfield before he left. This could spell the end of Mo Salah at Anfield also. I'm anxious (not in the good way) to see what happens in the next few years. YNWA.

I'm going to miss Klopp in the Premier League. He had to wait around to do a live spot with Rebecca Lowe and the rest after the season opener, then was still in good spirits cracking jokes and answering questions seriously.

His exhaustion makes me wonder what a coach at his level could do differently to avoid it. The EPL asks a lot.

I was very surprised to see the news. I have liked Klopp and his post-match interviews ever since he joined Liverpool. He clearly loves his job. However, I totally understand where he is coming from, sometimes the strain is just not worth it any more. There are waaaayy too many games across multiple competitions scheduled for the top-tier teams these days. It's no wonder it takes a toll with all the traveling.

I was also happy to hear he doesn't want to manage in the PL for any other club. That's class.

Don't worry, Liverpool fans - Stevie G is dusting off his resume...
