Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has penned a two-year contract extension with the club, taking him until June 2026.
The German had two years left on his current deal and had previously suggested he could step down at the end of his contract but he is now set to stay until the summer of 2026.
Speaking, Klopp said he was “delighted, humbled, blessed, privileged and excited,” about the new contract.
“When the owners brought the possibility to renew to me, I asked myself the question I’ve mused over publicly. Do I have the energy and vibe to give of myself again what this amazing place requires from the person in the manager’s office?
“I didn’t need too long to answer in truth. The answer was very simple… I’m in love with here and I feel fine,” he added.
The club have signed Klopp and his staff to longer deals at a time where the team are chasing historic quadruple, following the 2-0 win over Villarreal at Anfield that puts them in firm control of reaching a third Champions League final in four years.
His side also face Chelsea in the FA Cup final next month, and are a point behind Premier League leaders, Manchester City with five matches remaining, having lifted the League Cup in February.
Klopp has guided Liverpool to five trophies since joining the club seven years ago.
