Jurgen Klopp is willing to lend a helping hand to incoming Liverpool boss Arne Slot under certain circumstances.

Klopp says his door is always open if Slot wants to discuss any aspects of the squad he is inheriting. However, he maintains that it's not on him to insist that Slot or any new member of staff should reach out for advice.

The soon-to-be-departing Reds boss believes his project, christened "Liverpool 2.0," won't end with his exit. On the topic of passing the baton to the new manager, Klopp asserted: "It is not my decision.

"I am not in a position to give advice. When new people come in, if they want to know something they can call me - the whole world has my number.

"We can speak about absolutely everything, I love talking about everything in this club. I love talking with each person, it's no problem. But it's not about me or up to me to be available to ask he or she.

"It's no problem, I will give whatever I know about."

As the Reds gear up for their penultimate home game of the season against Tottenham tomorrow, it is increasingly apparent that a dream send-off for Klopp in the form of a Premier League title would require something close to a miracle. Nonetheless, following Spurs' loss to Chelsea earlier on Thursday, Liverpool have now secured a spot in next season's Champions League.

The German coach insists the 'pressure is off', freeing him to relish his remaining three matches steering the Reds, beginning with Spurs visit tomorrow. This match will be followed by an away fixture against Aston Villa and a final Anfield showdown against Wolves.

"That's my idea definitely. It would be crazy if I wouldn't do it," he said. "It needs a bit of convincing to be happy with Champions League qualification but it is still allowed.

"It doesn't help if you lose the next game, especially at home, and lose to Aston Villa and Wolves. So it's not enjoyable in a way. It's football. The only way to enjoy football is if you win games and that is what we will try. That is why we train really.

"We prepare the boys, we use the time we have now, and let's see what we can do. But yes my plan is to enjoy it."
