Jurgen Klopp has signed a new six-year contract with Liverpool, which will commit him to the club until 2022.
The German penned a two-and-a-half-year deal at Anfield upon his arrival last October, but the club’s board have now decided to hand Klopp a new and improved long-term deal after impressing during his first season in English football.
Klopp’s senior staff Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz have also lengthened their contracts ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
“It’s hard to express in words how honoured myself, Zeljko and Peter feel by the commitment shown in us by the ownership and the club in general. We are very much at the beginning of our journey, but to already have the connection we have with this very special place is incredible,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
“I am the first to recognise that with this great commitment comes a great responsibility. All of our coaching careers we have looked to make teams and clubs better, with the ultimate goal of making the supporters proud and happy.
“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. That’s everyone and we all have responsibility for it – all of us who are part of this LFC family: players, staff, ownership and of course the supporters. By being together at all times, we will be stronger, better and our successes sweeter.”
Liverpool will begin their pre-season campaign with a clash against National League side Tranmere Rovers on Friday night.
