Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has signed a contract extension to keep him at Anfield until 2026. The 54-year-old German coach took charge of Liverpool in 2015, leading the Reds to their sixth Champions League title in 2019 and first league title in 30 years in 2020. His previous contract with the club had been due to end in 2024. More Liverpool transfers and Premier League results table updates here!
“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,” Klopp said after signing the new contract. Klopp joined Liverpool from Borussia Dortmund in 2015, turning them into one of the best club football sides in the world after winning five trophies in his seven years at the club.
“There is just so much to love about this place,” he added. “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.” His assistants, Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz, have also signed extensions through 2026.
This season, the Reds are bidding to win the club’s first quadruple by claiming the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup titles. Liverpool have already won the EFL Cup, and are only a point behind Manchester City in the league, with five games left to play. They are set to face Villarreal in the second leg of the Champions League semis next week and they will meet Chelsea in the FA Cup final next month.
Added Klopp: “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!”
“It’s always hard to find the right words to adequately reflect Jurgen’s importance and contribution to our club, but today’s announcement really does speak for itself,” Fenway Sports Group’s Mike Gordon said. “But speaking on behalf of my partners John [Henry] and Tom [Werner], as well as myself, Jürgen is the perfect figurehead for the modern Liverpool FC.
