    Article: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is mulling over his new contract negotiations after his agent revealed the English weather is a concern for him.

    The German is currently contracted until 2022
    and has gone on record to say he will honour the full length of his contract - as he did at former clubs Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.

    But the Liverpool boss, who won the club's sixth European Cup last season after defeating Spurs 2-0 in Madrid, is said to have reservations about extending his current deal due to the weather conditions in England.

    Marc Kosicke, Klopp's agent, explained to Spox that the weather is a factor in the manager's consideration.

    'Jurgen's contract is still valid until 2022 and it is an open secret that the club would like to extend,' Kosicke said.

    'We still have a little time for that. We must wait and see how everything develops and whether climate change will bring better weather to England or only to Germany.'

    While in Germany, Klopp would escape the dark mornings and evenings by jetting off on holiday during the annual two-week winter break.

    However, the quick-fire nature of the Premier League's fixture schedule means the German hasn't been able to enjoy such luxuries, although the first winter break of its kind is coming to England this season.

    'One should not underestimate it (bad weather annoying Klopp), anyway. I remember that in November or December, Liverpool first asked for a contract extension. I said: "Let's wait".

    'Ulla (Klopp's wife) and Jurgen get up in the morning and it's dark. When they meet again in the evening, it is also dark or it is grey and there is drizzle.'

    Liverpool's top brass will be keen to tie Klopp down to a longer deal, with the boss taking the club on an upward trajectory since taking over at Anfield in October 2015.

    The Reds sit at the top of the Premier League table after the opening five games of the campaign.

    Hmmm he is growing older and if the climate cause a consern and he want to spend life elsewhere I will still be grateful for all he does for us. He is implementing a winning culture and I trust he will work with us to ensure his ideas live on. Maybe 7 years is a good length for him to stay.

    Yeah, completely agree. We remember Pele because of World Cups, and most of the footage of him that survives was of him in a Brazil strip. Northern Ireland didn't qualify for any major tournaments during the Best years, sadly. If he played for a major international nation we would have plenty more footage of him doing his incredible thing.

    I honestly thought he was serious, but I was never upset after reading the article today as I totally get why someone would want to live somewhere like Spain. That said, I bet Real Madrid were like cumming in their pants if they got sniff of that article...

    Still totally understandable if he would move his wife to a warm nice climate after being so successful in his career.

    But again I guess his wife is better of with him working. Imagine that guy spending his days at home.

    However, it does again bring in the question of a winter break. Its something that will help players (morally and physically), whats the huge question mark against it if it makes the PL even stronger?

    Who cares about the PL being stronger, or the international team, or whatever other "benefits" it has?

    Although as long as nobody TOUCHES my Xmas schedule, packed full of wintry Yuletide football, I don't care that much.

    This.
    I visited Brazil over the holidays a few years back and was super excited to go catch a match or two in a real South American cauldron of football rage. And then found out they were shut down for 2 weeks. Fuck Brazil and fuck Xmas break.

    The 1950s called. They want you back. Klopp's wife has a career of her own.
