Jurgen Klopp signs new Liverpool deal until 2026


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has signed a new deal with the Merseyside club that will keep the German on the touchline until 2026, it has been confirmed.

Klopp's old deal was due to run out in 2024, and there was speculation about his future beyond that, with many assuming that he would leave Anfield.

However, in recent months, Klopp appeared to become more open to staying at the club, and admitted that he could choose to stay ‘at the last minute… if I have the energy levels for it’.

It will not come to the last minute, though, with David Ornstein of The Athletic reporting that both the former Borussia Dortmund boss and his closest staff have agreed to prolong their time on Merseyside by a further two years.

The Guardian add that the Liverpool boss was ‘enthused by the club’s long-term planning’ that has seen the likes of Luis Diaz and Ibrahima Konate join, with Fabio Carvalho to follow in the summer.

Building a legacy

It is fair to say that Klopp has already revolutionised Liverpool Football Club, bringing them a first Premier League trophy and a sixth Champions League title, while his side this season are chasing a barnstorming quadruple that will include, should they manage it, a sweep of the domestic trophies as well as the Champions League once more.

And it does not end there, either, with the Reds set up perfectly for the future, too. Savvy acquisitions before the club are left desperate (such as Konate, Diaz and Tsimikas) mean that, should they lose any of their top-class players through moves away or time catching up with them, Liverpool are well placed to not skip a beat.

With four more years of Klopp, there is plenty still to be achieved.
