Klopp offered new contract


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been offered an extended contract just nine months into his tenure.

Klopp signed a two-and-a-half year deal when he was appointed as Brendan Rodgers' successor in October 2015. Although the contract includes an option for an extra year, principal owner John W Henry, Reds chairman Tom Werner and FSG president Mike Gordon are keen to tie the German down to a long-term deal.

The former Borussia Dortmund took over on the back of a disappointing start to the season but he managed to guide the club to the Capital One and Europa League finals.

An eighth-place finish in the Premier League means no European football this season but Klopp has already signed Joël Matip, Marko Grujic, Loris Karius and Sadio Mané this summer and Fenway Sports Group are prepared to invest in the squad in the hope of launching a title bid.
