A day after overseeing Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Villarreal in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals following a dominating performance at Anfield, it looks like Jurgen Klopp has committed his long term future to the Merseyside club as per a report on The Athletic.
The German was long believed to be on the way out following the end of his current deal in 2024, especially after a tough 2020-21 season which involved steering the club through a global pandemic.
Instead, Klopp has extended his stay for two more years than was originally planned. The 54-year-old would now be leaving Anfield after at least 11 years with the Reds. Since his arrival in 2015, the club has been on an upward trajectory, thanks to the former Dortmund man’s leadership and brains.
Along with the help of some outstanding recruitment, Klopp has managed to bring trophies back to Merseyside, including ending the club’s 30-year wait for the ever-elusive Premier League title.
Amidst the club’s quest for an unprecedented quadruple, the contract news will be music to the ears of Liverpool fans all over the planet.
