Jürgen Klopp lifts the lid on life after Liverpool in luxury $4.3m Majorca mansion

Jürgen Klopp has lifted the lid on what life could be like for him after leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2023/24 campaign. The German announced he would be parting ways with Anfield back in January and took charge of his final game against Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier in May.

The 56-year-old's reign at the club lasted just under a decade after taking over from Brendan Rodgers back in 2015. Now he is set for a life of luxury for the foreseeable future after purchasing a luxury villa on the Spanish island of Majorca.

The property was bought for around $4.3million (£3.4m/€4m) and could be the perfect place for Klopp to unwind, after citing his lack of energy as one of the reasons he was leaving Liverpool.

Speaking on the podcast Willipedia via Bild, Klopp opened up on why he was drawn to the Island in his post-Liverpool days. "I've dreamed of having a house in the south all my life. I like the weather, the climate, I like the people," he said.

"There are lots of things I like here and also people I already know. It's not like I'm looking for new friends. I already have friends for life, and if some of them are here too, that's cool.

"I don't want to emigrate. We go on holiday here every now and then. But when I'm here, I want everything to be as I know it. That's totally boring but the point is that I want to get to know a different life, but not somewhere in the jungle or on the mountain."

Klopp also mentioned the medical care as a reason he could see himself spending more time on the island as he grows older. "We're getting older and the medical care here is great," he continued.

"There are many German doctors and I would like to be able to understand every word, how I feel and so on, when the problems become bigger."

The former Liverpool boss went on to talk about his future in football and the possibility of retirement, where he added: "It's out of the question that I'll stop working altogether. But I don't see myself continuing at the same pace as before at the moment."

Klopp purchased the villa in 2022 and has since invested heavily in the luxury property, improving the air conditioning system, making it more energy efficient and undergoing major landscaping work across the outdoor areas.

The villa has been transformed into a low-energy house with an interconnected heating and air conditioning system, according to Bild. A computer regulates the two systems to keep the house the same temperature regardless of conditions outside, and the setup is supposed to reduce electricity consumption by 75 per cent.

For the time being, Klopp and wife Ulla are staying at the five-star Kimpton Aysla Hotel while they wait for the property to be ready to be moved into. The pair flew back to the island by private jet after Tuesday's farewell event on Merseyside.

Klopp recently shared footage of himself playing padel, one of his favourite pastimes, and the Mail revealed he has become an honorary member at the Mallorca Country Club. The exclusive, €2,800-a-year club features other honorary members such as Prince Albert of Monaco, Princess Birgitta of Sweden, tennis icons Boris Becker and Novak Djokovic and billionaire Richard Branson.

Klopp had a padel court installed at Liverpool's training ground. The game is a hybrid of squash and tennis, and is also loved by incoming manager Arne Slot.

Liverpool.com says: It looks like the perfect place for Klopp to unwind after almost ten years on Merseyside. We will no doubt see him return to the city of Liverpool but for now, he deserves the break!
