OFFICIAL: Klopp signs new Liverpool deal until 2022

OFFICIAL: Klopp signs new Liverpool deal until 2022
The 49-year-old, who was appointed as manager of the Anfield club back in October 2015, has committed his future to the Reds, with his assistants also extending their contracts
Jurgen Klopp has signed a new six-year deal with Liverpool exactly nine months after being appointed as manager of the Merseyside club.
The German, who was announced as Brendan Rodgers's successor on October 8 last year, has committed his future to the Reds until 2022.

His trusted assistants, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, have also extended their contracts.
The club's owners, Fenway Sports Group, initiated the negotiations after seeing enough evidence that Klopp can turn around Liverpool's fortunes.

He led the side to two finals during his debut season in English football, while resuscitating their famous atmosphere and restoring belief on the pitch, as well as in the stands.
FSG appreciate that the 49-year-old's framework for success dovetails with their strategy, and have no doubt his commitment to fine-tuning Liverpool into a great team rather than a team of great players will be rewarding.
Klopp's previous contract was up in 2018, with the option of a further year, but the Reds can now count on a period of prolonged stability as the manager implements his long-term vision.

Having spent seven years in charge of Mainz, before replicating that period of service with Borussia Dortmund, Klopp is set to repeat his longevity at Anfield.
In May, he revealed he would love to become part of the furniture at Liverpool, as was the case at the Opel Arena and Westfalenstadion.
"Seven years at Liverpool hopefully. For me it's the only way to work to be honest," he said.
"I don't feel the pressure. I cannot change. I feel opportunity. I don't think I have all the time in the world but I don't think I've ever felt doubt around me. 
"If that's right I don't know, maybe I'm not sensitive, but it leaves me completely free to make decisions and completely free to get us all together."

Klopp is overseeing his first pre-season on Merseyside, which began on July 2, as the backroom team works on getting the squad in prime physical condition ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
There are nine friendlies scheduled, with the opening fixture at Tranmere on Friday.
"If we play our best in pre-season then I've done something completely wrong," Klopp explained. 
"It's another session, it's not about beating our opponents. I don't care about how big the opponent is, we will say nothing about the situation…
"Everything you do is based around physical potential and what you create in pre-season is key to that."
Klopp has acquired four new signings ahead of his first full season in the Premier League, with more incomings expected as the squad continues to be revamped.
