Jurgen Klopp, until 2026. This is how he advanced The Athletic, which ensures that Liverpool has convinced the German coach to continue for four more years. A blow on the table of Michael Gordon, the president of Fenway, which is the company that owns the red team, and who yesterday saw the victory against Villarreal at Anfield together with Marc Kosicke, Klopp’s representative.
A meeting that served as a good omen for the English media, which had previously reported the good harmony between the two parties. Klopp’s previous contract linked him to Liverpool until 2024 and brings him around 10 million pounds, at the exchange rate 12 million euros net per year. Conditions that would ostensibly improve with the new agreement until 2026, although money has not been a major obstacle in the negotiations.
Klopp always assured that he would only sign new contracts to finish them and was not willing to commit if he lacks the energy or motivation to continue. But, despite Liverpool’s demanding schedule, which seeks to lift four titles before the summer (Champions, Premier, FA Cup and Carabao Cup), the Reds coach is revitalized, according to the same information.
The delay in the extension of the German’s contract is partially explained by the impact of the pandemic and the confinement, which slowed down all the operations of the English team. However, the talks went ahead and Klopp, who thoroughly considered his decision, will finally stay in Liverpool until 2026.
