Jurgen Klopp could see himself ending his managerial career with Liverpool and expects that to be in the next decade.

The German celebrates a year in charge at Anfield next weekend and so far has proved to be a very popular figure.

His first season had its ups and downs but the Reds have made a flying start to the 2016-17 campaign and have been widely praised for their football.

Klopp, 49, said he cannot imagine still being a manager at 60 and, although he would be happy to end his career in England, he would then head back to his homeland.

He said: "I certainly will (return to Germany) to live, but I don't know if I will be back there as a coach yet. The day will come when I say, 'thanks, it was a pleasure'.

"It's very, very unlikely that I will still be sitting on the bench when I am 60. And, if at the end of my career I only got to coach Mainz, Dortmund and Liverpool, then it will certainly have been three fantastic clubs."

Liverpool will bid for a fifth consecutive win when they travel to struggling Swansea today.

The Reds have scored 14 goals in their past four games while Swansea have managed just a single Premier League victory this season. "We will be prepared for this game and no one should be in doubt that we know about the quality of Swansea," added Klopp.
