Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ‘extends contract’ until 2024 with the Reds dominating

Published

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp extends his contract until 2024 with his team’s brilliant form in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

The charismatic German joined the Merseyside outfit in October 2015 as a replacement for current Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers and has been a revelation at the club so far.

Klopp helped Liverpool lift their first trophy under his regime last campaign- the Champions League, but has come close many times before their success in Europe’s most elite competition.

Liverpool have lost in the Carabao Cup final on penalties to Manchester City as well as losing in the Europa League final to Unai Emery’s Sevilla in 2016.

He also led Liverpool to the third-best point tally in Premier League history with 97 points last season but they were pipped to the title by one point by rivals Manchester City.

His ability to turn around Liverpool from a club struggling to get automatic qualification to the Champions League to a side that is a European powerhouse.

Should the 52-year-0ld get to 2024, he will become the longest-serving Liverpool manager since Bob Paisley, who was in charge from 1974 to 1983.

Principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner and FSG president Mike Gordon were all ecstatic about securing the long-term future of one of the best managers in the world.

The announcement of the new deal came on the same day that Klopp was awarded the Premier League’s November manager of the month.

Klopp’s team have been unbeaten this season just dropping points on one occasion, drawing to local rivals Manchester United. The Reds have won the rest of their league games and thus, have a healthy advantage compared to their rivals.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City have been somewhat struggling this season and are currently in third place, 14 points behind Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City are the closest challengers to Liverpool as of today, sitting 8 points away from the Reds. The Foxes have been on an incredible run of form but Liverpool have been unbeatable so far.

Therefore, the Reds are odds on favourites to win the Premier League for their first-ever time with the bookies setting their odds at 1/7.

Pep Guardiola’s side are still second favourites but are at a low 8/1 to win their third successive league title whereas Leicester are 14/1 to win their first league title since their iconic 2015/16 win.

Liverpool, however, don’t show any signs of slowing down and in having the FIFA’s men’s coach of the year leading them, it looks like they will finally end their barren run this year.
