Jurgen Klopp has extended his contract with Liverpool until 2026, adding two more years to his previous deal with the club. He is now set to complete a ten-year spell at Anfield, solidifying his status as one of the best of all-time in the club’s history. His assistants, Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz have also renewed their contracts to support Klopp.
The German has kept the hopes of an unprecedented quadruple alive for Liverpool. The Reds have already won the Carabao Cup, and are in the finals of the FA Cup. They are in second place in the Premier League and are all but confirmed to be finalists in the Champions League this season.
Jurgen Klopp renews contract with Liverpool
Here is what Jurgen Klopp had to say following the official announcement of his renewal:
“Like any healthy relationship, it always has to be a two-way street; you have to be right for each other. The feeling we were absolutely right for each other is what brought me here in the first place and it’s why I’ve extended previously.
“This one is different because of the length of time we have been together. I had to ask myself the question: Is it right for Liverpool that I stay longer?
“Along with my two assistant managers, Pep Lijnders and Pete Krawietz, we came to the conclusion it was a ‘Yes!’
“There is a freshness about us as a club still and this energises me. For as long as I have been here, our owners have been unbelievably committed and energetic about this club and it is clear that right now this applies to our future as much as I’ve ever known.
“When the owners brought the possibility to renew to me, I asked myself the question I’ve mused over publicly. Do I have the energy and vibe to give of myself again what this amazing place requires from the person in the manager’s office?
“I didn’t need too long to answer in truth. The answer was very simple… I’m in love with here and I feel fine!”
