Klopp joined Liverpool in 2015 and had previously suggested that he would take a break from management at the end of his current deal, which was set to expire in 2024.

But the German manager hinted recently that he would be willing to extend his stay at Anfield and has signed a new deal alongside assistant coaches Pep Lijnders and Peter Krawietz.

"There is a freshness about us as a club still and this energises me," Klopp told Liverpool's official website. "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."

"You have to be right for each other. The feeling we were absolutely right for each other is what brought me here in the first place and it's why I've extended previously. This one is different because of the length of time we have been together."

"I had to ask myself the question: Is it right for Liverpool that I stay longer?"

The news will come as a huge boost to Liverpool, who have been transformed by Klopp since the 52-year-old arrived at Anfield seven years ago.

Klopp led Liverpool to a sixth European Cup in 2019 before ending the club's 30-year wait for a league title when they won the Premier League the following season.

Klopp is now leading Liverpool on their bid for an unprecedented quadruple, with the club winning the Carabao Cup in February, through to the final of the FA Cup, two goals up on Villarreal in the Champions League semi-finals and trailing Manchester City by one point in the Premier League title race.
