Jurgen Klopp To Be Offered New Contract By Liverpool Owners To Commit Future At Club
Jurgen Klopp has been offered a new deal by Liverpool according to latest reports.
The Anfield based club is owned by American businessman, who are keen to tie the German manager to a long-term deal with the club.
According to FootTheBall sources, the owners have already approached the manager with the possibility of negotiating a new contract.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager signed for the Reds eight months ago, after the sacking of Brendon Rodgers, on a three year deal, with the option to extend the deal for a year, but the club has put forward a new contract to ward-off interest from potential suitors.
However, a pay-rise is less likely as the 49-year old is already one of the highest earning manager in the league and in Europe, with a hefty £7 million bonus laden annual salary.
Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce commented on the news, saying “This is one summer signing that will receive the universal approval of Liverpool’s fanbase.”
He also said the Klopp has “galvanised and energised both those in the dressing room and in the stands”, while adding “a group of players previously written off as sub-standard were guided to two cup finals,”
Though Liverpool finished 8th in the Premier League, but the club did manage to reach two major finals, including a Europa League finals defeat at the hands of reigning champions Sevilla.
