Jürgen Klopp loves a project. He certainly found one at Liverpool, where he departs after almost nine years, having turned Champions League exiles into champions of everything.

Prior to that, he had spent seven years apiece at Mainz and then Borussia Dortmund, with the farewells from both clubs mirroring the emotional scenes at Anfield yesterday. One of the most successful managers of the last two decades in terms of trophies anyway, it's these connections he forges that make Klopp an all-time icon.

Time will tell what the next chapter holds. Klopp has left his return to the game open-ended, although he has stipulated he will not manage another club in England, and will certainly take a year off. But his immediate future might contain a very different kind of project — as he plans a lavish 'ecological paradise' in Mallorca.

Three key takeaways from Jürgen Klopp's parting Liverpool speech as he makes final demand

Per the Daily Mail, he and wife Ulla are overseeing the demolition of a $4.3m (£3.4m/€4m) mansion, with the goal of transforming it into a luxurious and eco-friendly family home. Klopp could be intending to spend the bulk of his time there following his departure from Liverpool, with Arne Slot set to move into his current house.

Speaking to Off The Ball, Mark Lawrenson speculated that Klopp will move in right away. "'I'm not sure I should tell you this but it's not a massive secret. He's having a house built in Mallorca," he revealed in February.

"I have a house somewhere not far away from where he's building his. Ulla, his wife, is in charge of everything in terms of that, and he [Klopp] said: "The bloody thing's not even ready yet, and I'm paying all the bills!

"So he's probably going to retreat to there for a while, I would suggest. I can tell you now, it's not a nice gaff, it's an absolutely fabulous gaff. It's sensational, it really seriously is."

It's Bild that claims the new property will be a low-energy affair. A centralized heating and air-conditioning system, along with central controls for all appliances, is designed to reduce electricity consumption by as much as 75 per cent.

The Majorca Daily Bulletin says Klopp's mansion is close to the Mallorca Country Club, where he 'plays padel almost every morning' when on the island. He's brought his love of the sport to Liverpool, and Arne Slot is also keen. says: Klopp has certainly earned a break, and you could have a proper break in a place like this! It's the lap of luxury, and the Liverpool boss has earned it — although we're not sure how much use a central heating system will be getting in Mallorca.
