Jurgen Klopp Speaks After Contract Extension Confirmed
Speaking after the announcement of his new contract extension, Jurgen Klopp told LiverpoolFC.com: “There are so many words I could use to describe how I am feeling about this news… delighted, humbled, blessed, privileged, and excited would be a start.
“There is just so much to love about this place. I knew that before I came here, I got to know it even better after I arrived and now I know it more than ever before.
“Like any healthy relationship, it always has to be a two-way street; you have to be right for each other. The feeling we were absolutely right for each other is what brought me here in the first place and it’s why I’ve extended previously.
“This one is different because of the length of time we have been together. I had to ask myself the question: Is it right for Liverpool that I stay longer?
“Along with my two assistant managers, Pep Lijnders and Pete Krawietz, we came to the conclusion it was a ‘Yes!’ There is a freshness about us as a club still and this energises me. For as long as I have been here, our owners have been unbelievably committed and energetic about this club and it is clear that right now this applies to our future as much as I’ve ever known.”
Liverpool’s Recent Success Under Klopp Set to Continue
Jurgen Klopp’s time at Liverpool can be described as nothing other than a success. He delivered the Premier League title in 2020, a trophy that the club had been desperately chasing since 1990. Along with this achievement, the Reds have also lifted the Champions League, EFL Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup trophies.
This season, Klopp and his team are on course to win a historic quadruple. So far they have lifted the EFL Cup, are in the FA Cup Final, are currently winning 2-0 on aggregate in their Champions League semifinal against Villarreal, and are battling it out with Manchester City for the Premier League title.
Whatever happens this season, it would surprise no one if Klopp continued to develop his team and continued to bring success to the red half of Merseyside.
