By FPL360


How good is the Anfield boss? 

On Thursday evening,Liverpool confirmed that Jurgen Klopp had signed a contract extension with the club that will keep him at Anfield until 2026. 

The German manager’s previous deal was set to expire in 2024 and the former Borussia Dortmund tactician had previously hinted at potentially leaving when that contract came to an end. 

However, following speculation over a new deal being signed when his agent was spotted at Wednesday’s 2-0 win overVillarreal in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash, the club then confirmed that a deal had been struck. 

So why were Liverpool so keen on signing Klopp up to a new deal when he still had more than two years left to run on his current contract? Well, a quick look at hte maager’s record in the Premier League and Champions League since arriving at Anfield may give some sort of indication. 

How good has Klopp been at Liverpool? 

Since taking over as manager in 2015, Klopp and Liverpool have gone from strength to strength in English and European football. The German manager has won five trophies in seven years at the club, including the 2019/20 Premier League and the Champions League in 2019. 

As well as that, the club also remain in each of their four competitions this season and could end up reaching a third Champions League final in four years, as well as securing a historic quadruple.

However, Klopp isn’t just good at winning knock-out competitions or swooping in for silverware at the right time. When we look at his managerial record at Liverpool, they also show just how consistent his teams have been over the course of the past seven years. 

Klopp’s overall points per game average at Anfield stands at 2.08 in all competitions, which is far better than his predecessor, Brendan Rodgers, who only averaged 1.77 points per game. Klopp’s average in the Premier League (2.15 points per game) is also much better than Rodgers’ 1.8 at the club, as well as the three managers that came before the Northern Irish manager.
