Jurgen Klopp signs new contract! – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool could only have had a better week if silverware had been thrown at us after a series of big wins over rivals – and now the boss extending his stay!

 

I’m so glad, that Jurgen’s staying Red!

This is huge, and hugely unexpected for the most part: Jurgen Norbert Klopp has extended his contract with Liverpool Football Club!

The brilliant German boss has signed a two-year extension to his deal, with the club announcing it just before 5pm on Thursday.

He also had a brilliant message to fans:

“There is a freshness about us as a club still and this energises me. For as long as I have been here, our owners have been unbelievably committed and energetic about this club and it is clear that right now this applies to our future as much as I’ve ever known,” he said. We love it.

Assistant managers Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz are also extending their stay, with backing from the hierarchy at the club crucial to Jurgen’s plans to continue expanding and improving the backroom set-up and, in turn, the on-pitch performance level.

Suffice to say, supporters were absolutely incredulous, speechless, supremely happy and very, very excited as to what’s coming next!

Tweet of the day and match of the night

Hours after being reported as having passed away, superagent Mino reveals it was all a negotiating tactic.

Tonight it’s Man United vs Chelsea in the battle of ‘clubs who did well to be miles off the pace for their objectives this season’. Alternatively, all the Europa-ish semis are on: Leipzig-Rangers and Feyenoord-Marseille look particularly tasty.
