Jurgen Klopp Reaffirms Commitment to Liverpool
Liverpool fans will be delighted to hear that manager Jurgen Klopp has reaffirmed his commitment to the club. In an interview with German outlet RTL, Klopp made it clear that he is dedicated to the Reds and is looking to build “Liverpool 2.0”.
Klopp has been at Liverpool for eight years and signed a new contract in April 2022 that ties him to the club until summer 2026. This will be, by far, the longest tenure of his managerial career. When asked about his commitment, Klopp said “I have a loyalty to Liverpool. My heart is here in Liverpool.”
Klopp Looking to Rebuild Liverpool
After the disappointment of last season, Klopp seems particularly energised and reinvigorated by his new-look squad after a summer of upheaval. Incredibly, from the 23-man squad that featured in the Champions League final in 2019, only nine players remain – Klopp has told his squad this is year one, not year eight.
The manager appears to be set on making ‘Liverpool 2.0’ successful – and if he does, it would be the first time he has rebuilt his own squad to go on to achieve success, having departed Mainz and Dortmund after seven years each.
Klopp Praises Potential New German National Team Manager
On the new German national team manager, Klopp said Julian Nagelsmann – who is widely expected to take the job – would be a great solution: “I think Julian is a great solution because he is a great coach. I would be very happy about it – if it happens that way.”
Klopp Could Extend Stay Beyond 2026
Already Klopp is Liverpool’s longest-serving manager since Bill Shankly. He’s also the fourth longest-serving manager in Premier League history. Could we even see Klopp eventually extend his stay beyond 2026? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, Reds fans can take solace in knowing that their beloved manager is committed to the club and looking to build something special with ‘Liverpool 2.0’.
