Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and his coaching allies Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz have agreed stunning six-year contracts, it was confirmed on Friday – and there was a Twitter stampede from fans expressing their delight.
The trio have been rewarded with unusually long deals just nine months after signing initial three-year contracts with the club.
Many Liverpool fans stated that Klopp signing his contract extension is the best coup of the summer, despite the club being very active in the transfer market with three transfer deals, including Sadio Mane from Southampton for a fee in excess of £30million.
Other Liverpool supporters were more bold in their response with one fan claiming that the German is ‘the best manager in the world’.
Klopp guided the Merseyside club to the League cup and Europa League finals last term with many standout players such as Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.
One Liverpool supporter felt with Klopp signing this contract extension he is sending out a message to the clubs ‘important’ players that their future is at Anfield.
Here are their reactions on Twitter:
@LFC Love him more than my family.

@LFC I think with the new contract signing, Klopp is telling our “important” players his belief in our club! Hope they follow his example!
