Jurgen Klopp is creating 'an ecological family paradise' in Mallorca after purchasing a villa on the Balearic island for £3.4million.

The Liverpool manager stunned the world of football on Friday when he announced he will leave Anfield in May after nine seasons, despite having two years left on his deal.

Klopp, 56, cited the fact he was 'running out of energy' for his decision and hinted he may never manage in football ever again. 

The German was non-committal on his post-Liverpool future, but if he were to take a sabbatical or step away from the game altogether he could well retire in his mansion in the Mediterranean. 

Former Liverpool defender and pundit Mark Lawrenson believes Klopp is planning to relocate to Mallorca with his wife, Ulla.

'I'm not sure I should tell you this but it's not a massive secret. He's having a house built in Mallorca,' Lawrenson told Off the Ball earlier this week.

'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.'

Klopp purchased the home in Mallorca in June 2022 for €4m (£3.4m) from Swiss businessman and artist Rolf Knie and has decided to completely rebuild the 5,000-square metre property.

According to Bild, Klopp has transformed the villa into a low-energy house, where the heating and air conditioning systems are interconnected.

The two systems are regulated by a computer to ensure the temperature in the house remains unchanged, regardless of the outside weather.  

Bild adds that all electrical devices and appliances are also regulated by a central system, which Klopp can control from his phone.

The set-up is intended to reduce electricity consumption by up to 75 percent, while a state-of-the-art new irrigation system is designed to recognise when it is required.

It is understood that Klopp stays at a nearby hotel when he visits the island, but that is set to change when the redevelopment is complete. 

While work remains ongoing, Lawrenson insisted it will be well worth the wait.

'I can tell you now, it's not a nice gaff, it's an absolutely fabulous gaff. It's sensational, it really seriously is,' Lawrenson added. 

Klopp has won the Premier League, Champions League, the FA Cup and Carabao Cup over nine hugely successful years at Anfield and his departure has sent shockwaves through the Premier League.

In a video message Liverpool released on Friday, Klopp said: 'I will leave the club at the end of the season.

'I can understand that it's a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it.

'It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now. 

'I know that I cannot do the job again and again and again and again.'
