Carlo Ancelotti reveals the reason behind Jurgen Klopp quitting Liverpool

Pundit stats key reasons behind Liverpool's Premier League title 'failure'

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says he know why Jurgen Klopp quit Liverpool at the end of last season.

The German joined the Merseyside club back in 2015 and after almost nine years at the club, he decided to call time on his Anfield career.

Klopp announced his decision to quit Liverpool at the beginning of the year and the Merseyside club have replaced him with Dutch manager Arne Slot.
