Jurgen Klopp has agreed a 4 years contract extension.

Liverpool Football Club announce that head coach Jurgen Klopp has agreed a contract extension with the club.

Assistant managers Peter Krawietz and Pepijn Lijnders have also agreed deals to continue working collaboratively alongside Klopp.

“This club is in such a good place, I couldn’t contemplate leaving,” Klopp, 52, told Liverpool’s website.

“For me personally this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.

“When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.

“People see what happens on the pitch as a measure of our progress and although it is the best measure, it’s not the only measure. I have seen the commitment from ownership through to every aspect and function of the club you can think of.

“When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that.” Klopp told Liverpool FC website.

He said

“It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complementary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.

“If I didn’t, I would not be re-signing.” He told BBC Sports.

The deal comes after four successful years in charge of Liverpool for the 52-year-old and will ensure the long-term foundations for the team’s – and indeed club’s – development will continue well into the next decade.

Klopp was initially appointed as Liverpool manager on October 8, 2015.

During his first campaign at Anfield, Liverpool reached the finals of both the League Cup and Europa League, the latter after a memorable run in the tournament, but narrowly lost on both occasions.

In 2016-17, Klopp navigated the Reds back into the Champions League for the first time since 2014, with a top-four finish secured with a final day victory over Middlesbrough at Anfield.

The club marked their return to Europe’s premier competition the following term by storming their way to the final in Kiev, though there was heartbreak after a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Ukrainian capital.

Nevertheless, Klopp and Liverpool regrouped and, in 2018-19, the 52-year-old guided the club to their sixth European Cup as the Reds lifted the Champions League after a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur on an unforgettable night in Madrid.

On the domestic front, the team produced a remarkable season in the Premier League, losing just one match and racking up a point tally of 97 – the best in the club’s history – narrowly missing out on the crown by a solitary point to Manchester City.

And today’s news means Liverpool and Klopp’s journey together will continue into the next decade after he agreed a contract that will extend his Anfield story until 2024
