Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has vowed to be successful at Anfield and help develop the club moving forward.

The German recently signed a contract extension with the club which will keep him on Merseyside until 2022.

Klopp told Liverpool’s website: “I said that signing the new contract is a little bit like having a penalty – now we have to finish it. You cannot celebrate the penalty, you have to score the goal.

“We really need to be successful, that’s clear; we need to develop the club, we need to develop a lot of things. We’re already building a new stand, we’re thinking about brining the Academy and Melwood together, things like this.”

His side completed a 1-0 victory in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers on Friday, as their preparations for the new Premier League season begins to take shape.

The club announced that Klopp would take over as the club’s new manager last October after they parted ways with Brendan Rogers, the German went on to guide them to an eight-placed finish last season.

Prior to Anfield the 49-year-old left Borussia Dortmund, who he helped claim two Bundesliga titles in his seven-year spell.

Liverpool have already set about improving next season with the transfer of Sadio Mane, Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Marko Grujic whose £5million transfer was agreed in January.

In other Liverpool news, they are in a three-horse race to sign a Spanish player who has a £15million release clause.
