"Breaking News" is almost a news, at least that's what Jürgen Klopp thinks. After the successes of recent years, however, it should come as no surprise what the Liverpool FC coach himself announced today on the club's Twitter channel: The English Premier League club and Klopp have extended the partnership to 2024. The same goes for Klopp's assistant coach Peter Krawietz and Pepijn Lijnders.
"We have decided to continue what has not gone so far," Klopp said in the video. "We love it here, we really feel at home here." In addition, he now understands almost everyone in town, so Klopp, who joined the Reds in October 2015, thought it was a good time for the extension. His previous contract with the serial manager was dated 2022. "There was no difficult negotiation," Klopp said before announcing: "We'll see each other – from now on even more often."
Liverpool FC have been waiting to win the English Championship since 1990 and lead the Premier League table after Match Day 16 with an eight point lead over Leicester City and 14 over defending Manchester City. In May, Klopp won the Champions League with Liverpool for the sixth time in club history.
"We already used the term & # 39; ideal & # 39; when we introduced Jürgen in 2015," says a message from club management. "It still applies today. We think he is the best that is."
In Liverpool, Klopp, who was recently appointed as a candidate for Bayern Munich or as a possible successor to country coach Joachim Löw, is likely to count on the core of his team for a long time. Goalie Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino and Chief of Defense Virgil van Dijk are still under contract until 2023. Goalkeeper Alisson and the hopefuls Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson signed until 2024.
