Jurgen Klopp has claimed that his new contract will guarantee Liverpool have stability in the transfer market.
Speaking to the press via Liverpool FC on YouTube after agreeing a deal until 2026, Klopp said it gave The Reds an upper hand when making signings.
“It’s good for transfer windows,” he said. “We can’t guarantee success but we can guarantee stability and in these difficult times that’s a good thing.”
Liverpool fans will be hoping that Klopp’s commitment to the cause will not only convince current players with contract’s expiring to do the same, but to bring new blood into the club too.
Four more years
There’s no question that any prospective signings for Liverpool will have had an eye on the news coming out of the club yesterday.
Although there were still two years to go on Klopp’s contract, there was uncertainty around where the club would be beyond his tenure.
The 54-year-old is by far the most influential figure the club has seen this century. A lot of the success of recent years is down to his leadership and abilities as a coach.
Without the spending power of clubs with similar ambitions, Liverpool are heavily reliant on Klopp’s presence to keep attracting top talent.
As one of the best manager’s around, any player in the world should want to work with him. Even former players like Gary Lineker have claimed they’d have loved to have played for the German.
If he had committed to walking away in 2024, players attracted to working with Klopp would perhaps be less keen to make the step to Anfield.
That’s now all out of the window. The players currently in the squad, and those looking to join this summer and in the summer’s to come can look forward to working with Jurgen for years ahead.
