Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is welcome to stay at Anfield for as long as he likes to stay.
That’s according to the Liverpool chairman Tom Werner amid speculations that Jurgen Klopp will be given a new contract.
The German manager has so far enjoyed his best season on Merseyside and has taken Liverpool to their second successive Champions League finals to be played tomorrow against Tottenham in Madrid.
Klopp will be hoping for Liverpool to win their first trophy with him and Red’s overall sixth European Cup after they missed out on the Premier League title by just a point this season.
The 51-year-old has overseen remarkable progress at Liverpool, who are now strong contenders in the Premier League and Europe.
Klopp current contract runs until 2022 after he signed a six-year deal in July 2016 which was worth £7million.
But recent reports suggest the Liverpool boss could be given a five-year contract extension, seeing Klopp’s immense popularity at the club and the drastic development he has overseen since he took charge in October 2015.
Werner admits the club’s owners are happy for him and he can stay as long as he wishes.
“But I think you know that we think the world of him. We have already extended his contract once.
“All I can say is that it’s obviously important that he stays for as long as he likes.
“We believe that he’s committed to Liverpool.”
However, there were rumoured reports of former Dortmund coach being linked with Juventus job, for which Maurizio Sarri, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho linked are in the queue.
If Liverpool wins the Champions League, then Klopp will become only the fourth different manager to win the European Cup with Liverpool after Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Rafael Benitez who won it earlier at the Anfield.
Anyway, the former Dortmund coach will be aiming to end his bad luck in finals, after having lost his last six games with Dortmund and one Champions League finals with Liverpool.
