Jurgen Klopp has extended his contract at Liverpool until 2024, saying he could not contemplate leaving the European champions.

The 52-year-old arrived at Anfield in October 2015 and lifted his first silverware with the club this year, winning the Champions League in June and the Super Cup in August.

Klopp has also taken Liverpool to the top of the Premier League this season – establishing an eight-point lead – making them odds-on favourites to win their first title since 1990.

After announcing his new deal, Klopp said: “For me personally, this is a statement of intent, one which is built on my knowledge of what we as a partnership have achieved so far and what is still there for us to achieve.

“When I see the development of the club and the collaborative work that continues to take place, I feel my contribution can only grow.
