Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) boss Luis Enrique has declared his sympathy for Jurgen Klopp after the German made his shock announcement on Friday morning.

After spending nine years in the Premier League, the German boss revealed that he is “running out of energy.

He now believes it’s the right time to leave the Reds at the end of the season despite having two years left on his contract.

Under his leadership, the club have won almost every trophy imaginable including the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and more.

This season the Reds are on course to win at least one trophy this season with Klopp’s men going strong in all competitions.

However, a triumphant Premier League campaign would be the cherry on the cake for the German’s storied time at Anfield.

The likes of Andy Robertson and Virgil van Dijk have already pledged to give Klopp the ending he deserves as Liverpool manager.

Now former Barcelona manager and current PSG boss Luis Enrique has shared his thoughts on Jurgen Klopp’s announcement.

What did PSG boss Luis Enrique say about Jurgen Klopp

The Spanish manager has had his fair share of worries to contend with in the French capital.

From the continued speculation around star man Kylian Mbappe to the embarrassment that was losing 4-1 to Newcastle United in Champions League, Enrique has his hands full.

Speaking ahead of his side’s Ligue 1 clash with Stade Brestois, the Spaniard lamented that too much access is given to managers for media purposes:

“Managers are overexposed in terms of media,” began Luis Enrique via GFFN.

“We are always the first ones targeted when the results aren’t good.”

“This over-exposure is tiring.”

“Sometimes coaches need to switch off a bit.”

“After nine years at Liverpool, his desire to recharge his batteries is understandable, before perhaps taking on another challenge at another club.”  

Although the two acclaimed managers have never met in official competition, there seems to be a great deal of respect coming from Enrique.

Enrique himself has looked quite frazzled in the French capital at times and seems far away from the success that PSG crave so badly – the European Cup.

In other news, Chelsea have a number of injury concerns ahead of Anfield clash this week.
