Danny Mills has tipped Liverpool to hand Jurgen Klopp another new long-term contract next year.

The former England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested that the 53-year-old would not build a Sir Alex Ferguson-esque dynasty at Anfield over the next 15 years.

But Mills believes Liverpool will react to the club sensationally winning their first league title in 30 years by handing Klopp an improved long-term deal.


In December, Liverpool’s manager put pen to paper on a new deal that keeps him tied down to the club until the summer of 2024.

Mills cast doubt over whether Klopp could emulate the feats of Ferguson but made the shock claim he may agree another new contract 18 months after his last one.

“Sir Alex Ferguson was unbelievably successful and Arsene Wenger was, especially in the early part of his time there,” he told Football Insider.

“If Jurgen Klopp is enjoying his football at Liverpool and he is doing well they will keep rewarding him with new contracts.

“He has four years left and this time next year they’ll give him another four years.

“He will always have job security so long as he is doing well.

“Do I see him being there 15 years? Another three years would be a long time.

“In that time he will have to go through a rebuilding process. In two years time that team will need a serious rebuild. Can he do that and be successful? Possibly not.”

Klopp, when speaking on his contract situation, said: “I can’t sign a lifetime contract because there will be a time where they don’t want to see me anymore.”

“I will not sign a lifetime contract but I will be here for a while.”
