Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has signed a six-year deal keeping him at Liverpool until 2022. Klopp and his assistants have penned the contract.
Klopp joined Liverpool in October, initially agreeing a £15m deal to 2018 that has now been extended until 2022.
It is a record contract for a Liverpool manager – worth upwards of £42 million over the next six years.
Few managers in world football have the security of such an agreement, particularly at the highest level of the game.
Now a days it looks like a trend that all clubs are looking for long term plans and they want to secure the places and be sure about future but it may goes in wrong way also.
“The ideas and plans he has for the football infrastructure excite us,” Liverpool’s owner John Henry
“We believe it benefits the organisation to have Jurgen committed to Liverpool for a sustained period, to make sure he is here to oversee this development.
“When you have an individual of Jurgen’s quality in the building it makes perfect sense to secure that person for the long term.
“To not do so would be irresponsible.”
Klopp said : “We are very much at the beginning of our journey,”
“I am the first to recognise that with this great commitment comes a great responsibility.
“There is much to do and much to achieve and we look to do this by being the most completely together group anywhere in the world.”
