Former Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has disclosed he will be returning to Anfield in June, just weeks after he officially quit the club.

The German announced in January that he would end his nine-year reign at the Merseyside club at the end of the just-concluded season.

At the time, it was also confirmed that his assistants, Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz, would also depart the club.

In his exit announcement statement, Klopp disclosed that he had to make the difficult decision as he was running out of energy.

“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," he said via the club's official website.

The 56-year-old went on to help his side finish third in the Premier League behind Arsenal and title winners, Manchester City.

Klopp set for Anfield return

However, just days after his farewell at Anfield, Klopp has announced he will be returning to the stadium in June.

Unfortunately, @centregoals, citing The Athletic, reports that his return has nothing to do with managing Liverpool for the second time.

Instead, the German is only coming to attend a Taylor Swift concert at the facility next month.

The Premier League and the Champions League titles are among the major trophies he won.

Meanwhile, the former Broussia Dortmund boss has since been succeeded by Arne Slot, who will be in charge of Liverpool from next season.

The Dutchman was in charge of Feyenoord prior to his Anfield move.

Why Klopp is better than Arsene Wenger

In other news, Sports Brief also previously analysed which is the better coach between Klopp and Arsene Wenger.

The legendary French tactician spent more than two highly successful decades in the Premier League with Arsenal.

One of his greatest highlights was when he led the 'Invincible' Gunners to an unbeaten run in an entire EPL season.
