Klopp signed a three-year deal, with the option for a further season, when he was recruited by Fenway Sports Group last October but the Americans have taken action to ensure their manager remains at Anfield for the foreseeable future.
[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]Carlos Tevez knows his price it seems! West Ham offered to make Tevez the best-paid player in their history but claim the 32-year-old striker turned them down and demanded £250,000 per week.
Tevez was offered £150,000 – plus bonuses – and told he would be their first-choice striker next season, but he declined the offer and is set to stay at Argentinian club Boca Juniors.
An annoyed David Sullivan, West Ham’s co-owner, said: ‘All this business, “I love West Ham”, well it’s “I love West Ham if they give me £250,000 a week”.
