Liverpool set to offer Jurgen Klopp a contract extension

Liverpool, July 7: Liverpool FC are all set to offer Jurgen Klopp a contract extension in order to keep the talismanic manager at Anfield for a longer time period.

It is being reported that the top brass of Liverpool management are extremely happy with Jurgen Klopp's performance so far at the club. Klopp's process of reviving the glory days of Liverpool seems to have impressed the FSG group who own the club.

Jurgen Klopp's current contract stands valid till 2018 with an added clause of extension till 2019. But it is being speculated that the FSG group might want to keep Klopp for a longer period.

The report card of the German manager so far looks neat as his side reached the finals of Capital One Cup and Europa League last season. They defeated some of the giants of Europe on their way to the Europa finals.

Manchester United in round of 16, Dortmunf in quarter-finals and Villarreal in semi-final were the teams Klopp's men defeated en route to the finals. Unfortunately, Unai Emery's Sevilla derailed Liverpool in the final.

The club's majority owner John W Henry and his partners Tom Werner and Mike Gordon holds a theory of not spending much but nurture the youth to get success, which perfectly matches Klopp's thinking.

Jurgen Klopp simgle-handedly architected the Dortmund side which won the Bundesliga and reached the finals of UEFA Champions League in 2012/13 season.

The manager is yet to spend big in this transfer window as he has mostly focused on prucuring some of the finest young talents in the world right now.

Only time will tell if Jurgen Klopp will be successful in bring back the glory days at Anfield, those days when the men in red were one of the most dominant forces in world football.
