The German manager joined the Reds in October 2015, penning a three-year contract at the time, and the owners have been so impressed with the impact he has made, they have decided to extend his deal.

Although the club have not confirmed the length of the contract, it is thought that the extension runs until 2022, while coaches Buvac and Krawietz have also signed lengthy deals to remain alongside the boss.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Klopp admitted: “It’s hard to express in words how honoured myself, Zeljko and Peter feel by the commitment shown in us by the ownership and the club in general.

“We are very much at the beginning of our journey, but to already have the connection we have with this very special place is incredible.”

The former Borussia Dortmund boss added: “There is much to do and much to achieve and we look to do this by being the most completely together group anywhere in the world. By being together at all times, we will be stronger, better and our successes sweeter.”

Meanwhile, Fenway Sports Group bosses John Henry, Tom Werner and Mike Gordon said in a statement: “When you have an individual of Jurgen’s quality in the building it makes perfect sense to secure that person for the long term. To not do so would be irresponsible.

“The overriding motivation behind this decision is Jurgen’s commitment to overall improvement and development.”
