Liverpool have official announced manager Jurgen Klopp’s contract extension.
Jurgen Klopp was hired to replace Brendan Rodgers at the Liverpool helm on an initial deal that ran until 2018.
However, thanks to the German manager’s impressive performance, Liverpool owners have decided to secure his services for a longer term. Jurgen Klopp has hence, agreed and committed his long-term future to the Reds, until the year 2022.
Klopp said: “It’s hard to express in words how honoured myself, Zeljko and Peter feel by the commitment shown in us by the ownership and the club in general.
“We are very much at the beginning of our journey, but to already have the connection we have with this very special place is incredible.
“I am the first to recognise that with this great commitment comes a great responsibility. All of our coaching careers we have looked to make teams and clubs better, with the ultimate goal of making the supporters proud and happy.
“To do this we have to make sure we always put player and team development at the heart of every major decision. It is my job to lead that and ensure every element of the LFC football environment reflects the best practices in the game. It is fantastic that the club’s ownership is just as committed to this as we are.
“There is much to do and much to achieve and we look to do this by being the most completely together group anywhere in the world. That’s everyone and we all have responsibility for it – all of us who are part of this LFC family: players, staff, ownership and of course the supporters.
“By being together at all times, we will be stronger, better and our successes sweeter.”
Klopp’s assistant coaches Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz have also signed new deals.
