Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seems to exclude Series A movement and says that his Italian is “not so good.”
“To do my job, I need to know the language and my Italian is not very good”: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seems to exclude moving to Serie A
- Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said it is unlikely that he will ever make it in the Serie A
- The German believes he doesn’t speak enough Italian to do his job effectively
- Klopp leads the Reds to their first national title in 30 years
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says it is unlikely that he will manage in the Serie A because he does not speak enough Italian.
The Reds are 25 points ahead of the Premier League after an unbeaten season so far, and after their Champions League success last summer, there are certainly many clubs interested in the German if he ever leaves Anfield.
But Klopp seemed to pour cold water on every possible move to Italy, saying he lacks the language skills and hopes to travel around the world after calling it a day.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he doesn’t know enough Italian to make it in the Serie A
“I won’t come to Italy because I want to travel after my career,” he said Radio Anch’io Sport.
“A good glass of wine, I’ll have fun with Arrigo [Sacchi]. Either with [Carlo] Ancelotti or with [Maurizio] Sarri.
‘I love your country, the weather, the fantastic food. But to do my job, I need to know the language and my Italian is not very good. “

Klopp said a career in Italy was not impossible, but would require an extended period of Italian lessons – adding that the former Italian coach Arrigo Sacchi had a huge impact on his management career.
“I would need time, maybe a year to learn Italian, and then I could think about it, but who knows. I will definitely come on vacation, but to work, who knows?
“The most important coach I learned is Arrigo, after all he has done with his Milan. Those things have been implemented in our team and the basis of everything I do is what Arrigo did. “
