Liverpool’s owners want Jürgen Klopp to build an Anfield dynasty after restoring the club to the pinnacle of European football and will be seeking to extend his contract in the aftermath of the club’s Champions League triumph.
Klopp joined the list of Kop immortals by securing Liverpool’s sixth European Cup, becoming the fourth Anfield manager to win the most coveted trophy in club football.
A city-wide party first postponed after the Europa League final in 2016, then cancelled after the loss to Real Madrid last year and further delayed following the narrow Premier League loss to Manchester City, finally hit the town on Sunday.
An anticipated 500,000 lined the streets – city planners had earlier anticipated half that figure – as the open top bus parade made its way to Liverpool Pier Head where a pyrotechnic show awaited players and fans.
The owners and directors of Fenway Sports Group were present on a bus packed with players, backroom team members and executives, savouring the moment while planning ahead.
The dream is not only for Liverpool to add to their honours, but for Klopp to dedicate the peak of his coaching career to build a new era of dominance. There is no intention of seeing the win at the Wanda Metropolitano as the pinnacle of Klopp’s Liverpool reign. The prime targets remains the Premier League title he was so close to securing in 2019.
Although Klopp’s current deal still has three years left to run, that will not stop owners FSG seeking to prolong its relationship with the manager they consider the best in the world – and certainly the most suited to the Merseyside club.
