Jurgen Klopp has “no intention” of resigning from Liverpool as his agent explained what was “taken into account” by FSG before the start of the season to relieve pressure on the German boss.

Liverpool have struggled this season, winning just four of 12 Premier League games, having been close to the quadruple last term.

A 2-1 defeat to Leeds at Anfield followed the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest to leave Klopp’s side ninth in the table.

The run of poor form has led to questions about Klopp’s future, with suggestions he could be sacked, but would more likely resign, with some believing he may have hit the same seventh year problems that spelled the end at Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.

But his agent has poured water on claims Klopp has itchy feet, claiming the current trough was expected and accepted by owners FSG following the “past intensive season”.

“I can assure that Jürgen Klopp has no intention of resigning from Liverpool FC,” he told Sky Germany.

“The fact that problems could arise this season due to the past intensive season was taken into account by the club’s owners before the start of the season.

“Jürgen enjoys the backing of the people in charge and is in regular contact with them. He loves the club, his team and the fans and is determined to continue and successfully complete the transition in Liverpool.

“He didn’t extend his contract until 2026 for nothing.”

Klopp has rejected suggestions his current team has reached the end of its useful lifespan and insists judgement should be reserved until the end of the season.

“I think the judgement for this should come later on in the season, or maybe at the end,” he said ahead of the Champions League visit of Napoli.

“If you say ‘That’s it’ for this group of players or for this manager I don’t think that’s 100 percent fair in this moment, to judge the team or the squad, because we never had them available.

“We miss players, especially now up front, we miss top quality which is not helpful.

“Even if it’s unfair, it’s fine. It’s normal, it’s our life and it’s absolutely fair to ask these questions. But we have to answer that later on.”
