By FPL360


Will Klopp stay at liverpool? 

Liverpool are hoping to convince Jurgen Klopp to sign a new contract extension with the Anfield side after he indicated that he would be open to staying at the club beyond 2024. 

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach has two years left on his current deal with Liverpool and had previously hinted at leaving the club when his contract came to an end. 

However, according to Sky Sports, the German tactician is open to extending his stay. The British broadcaster also reported that Mike Gordon, the president of Liverpool’s parent company, Fenway Sports Group, was in attendance for Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Villarreal in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash. 

According to Sky, Klopp’s agent, Marc Kosicke, was also in attendance at the game and sitting just a few seats away from Gordon, who is leading the charge to convince Klopp to stay at Liverpool for the foreseeable future. 

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.
