‘I couldn’t contemplate leaving’ – Klopp extends Liverpool contract to 2024

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has signed a contract extension with Liverpool to stay with the Premier League club until 2024.

The 52-year-old, who joined the Reds in October 2015, signed a new six-year contract in July 2016 and that has now been extended further.

Liverpool are chasing their first Premier League title since 1990, and are standing top of the table with an eight-points lead.

“This club is in such a good place, I couldn’t contemplate leaving,” Klopp, 52, told Liverpool’s website.

“When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.

“When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that.

“It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complementary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.

“If I didn’t, I would not be re-signing.”

Liverpool won the Champions League last season, and have advanced to the round of 16 of the current campaign, with the likelihood of facing Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid.
