Jurgen Klopp Signs Long-Term Deal With Liverpool

Liverpool, England – Liverpool has announced a long-term extension deal with German manager Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp joined Liverpool in October, initially agreeing a 18 million euros deal to 2018 that has now been extended until 2022.

“His leadership will be critical to everything we hope to achieve,” said Liverpool’s owners.

“The ideas and plans he has for the football infrastructure excite us,” added Liverpool’s principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner and Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon.

“We believe it benefits the organization 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 took Liverpool to the League Cup and the Europa League finals last term.

The 49-year-old German had previously guided Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles and the 2013 Champions League final.
