Klopp's Agent Addresses Contract Situation And Outlines His Future Plans

Klopp's Agent Addresses Contract Situation And Outlines His Future Plans

Where would Liverpool be without Jurgen Klopp? Before the German's arrival they were a club that lacked direction, seemingly on the road to nowhere. Less than four years after his appointment, they are European champions.

While Liverpool's owners would love him to extend his contract, Klopp has not signed on the dotted line as of yet. There is no real rush to do so, considering his current deal runs until 2022.

Despite this, the club would love to reward him for his impact over the past few seasons. Adding on a couple of extra years to the deal wouldn't hurt either.

Speaking to German outlet Die Welt, Klopp's agent Marc Kosicke said that the manager has no plans to leave Liverpool anytime soon. However, he did not say that he would sign an extension to his contract, and also mentioned where his next destination could be after leaving Anfield.

Jurgen himself once said that in the event that Joachim Low someday no longer wants to be the national coach and it would be possible for him do that, this is an option for him.

But he has contract by 2022 anyway. In Liverpool, [they] would even like to extend it.

And, as I said, he feels comfortable there and has felt again at the recent festivities in the city, what a great Liverpool club and that he is in the right place at the right time.

While Klopp could decide to move on at the end of his deal, it is incredibly unlikely he will be prised away from Liverpool before the summer of 2022.

Kosicke said that his client's value to his current club would make it impossible for any other team to turn his head.

Jurgen is currently not affordable. But it is difficult to measure the transfer fee in his case anyway.

How is it going to work with a coach, under which the value of the club has increased in just three years from just under £900million to nearly £2.8billion? That is not how it works.

His work is highly valued because he has succeeded in becoming a top European club. But by winning the Champions League, how they look at Jurgen has changed again.

Not only did he restore confidence to Liverpool Football Club, but he also satisfied his longing for silverware.

Even without this title, he enjoys a high reputation. Jurgen is happy there and looks very [settled], but it is true that the Champions League title has relaxed a lot in terms of external perception.
