Jurgen Klopp signs new Liverpool deal until 2024

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has signed a new deal with the club that will run until 2024.

Klopp, who joined the Reds in October 2015, signed a new six-year contract in July 2016 and that has now been extended further.

Liverpool won the Champions League under the German last season and finished second in the Premier League.

They lead the top flight this season and have an eight-point lead in pursuit of a first league title since 1990.

"This club is in such a good place, I couldn't contemplate leaving," Klopp, 52, told Liverpool's website.

"For me personally this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.

"When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.

"People see what happens on the pitch as a measure of our progress and although it is the best measure, it's not the only measure. I have seen the commitment from ownership through to every aspect and function of the club you can think of.

"When the call came in autumn 2015, I felt we were perfect for each other; if anything, now I feel I underestimated that.

"It is only with a total belief that the collaboration remains totally complimentary on both sides that I am able to make this commitment to 2024.

"If I didn't, I would not be re-signing."

Liverpool lost only one game in the Premier League last season as they amassed 97 points but missed out on the title by a point to Manchester City.

This time around, they are unbeaten in the league - having won 15 and drawn one of their 16 games - and hold an eight-point lead over second-placed Leicester City and a 14-point advantage over Manchester City.

The Reds host Watford on Saturday at 12:30 GMT before their main squad head off to Qatar to play in the Fifa Club World Cup.

Liverpool have also progressed through to the knockout stages of the Champions League as they attempt to defend a trophy they won in June by beating Tottenham in Madrid.

Klopp's assistants Peter Krawietz and Pepijn Lijnders have also extended their deals with the club.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
