Jurgen Klopp confirmed that his contract with Liverpool has been extended until 2024. Klopp’s current agreement was set to expire in the summer of 2022.
Jurgen Klopp signed ’till 2024
The news was announced on Twitter, where Klopp told fans:
“We have decided to continue what has worked so far, not too bad. We agreed on a new contract. We love it here.”
The 52-year old German manager initially signed for Liverpool in 2015. The club has now cast aside fan worries that Klopp will not remain at “Anfield” much longer. The coach brought the Champions League trophy to Liverpool last year and is currently on the road to win Liverpool’s long-awaited first Premier League title.
Klopp expressed his desire to continue his journey with Liverpool.
“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. It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complimentary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.”
“If I didn’t I would not be re-signing. This club is in such a good place, I couldn’t contemplate leaving.”
“I must also highlight the role of our sporting director, Michael Edwards, in this journey so far. His input and collaboration have been just as important as anyone else’s in getting us into a position to compete for the game’s top titles.”
“For anyone in football who aspires to compete in an environment where every element of the organization is at its very best – from the support of the supporters to the vision of the owners – there can be no better place than this.”
Liverpool’s next fixture is against Watford tomorrow, after which Jurgen Klopp’s team have to play Aston Villa in the League Cup quarter-final and play in the Club World Cup semi-final, both in a matter of 24 hours.
