The 49-year old took over from Brendan Rodgers last October after a seven-year stint with Borussia Dortmund, where he won two German League titles and reached the final of the Champions League.

The German's initial deal with Liverpool ran until 2018, with an option of extending it a further year, and, while no details of the extension have been disclosed, it is understood that Klopp (right) has signed a new six-year contract.

"We are very much at the beginning of our journey, but to already have the connection we have with this very special place is incredible," Klopp said.

"It is my job to lead that and ensure every element of the LFC football environment reflects the best practices in the game.

"It is fantastic that the club's ownership is just as committed to this as we are."

Klopp has made an instant impression in his nine-month tenure, guiding the club to the finals of the League Cup and the Europa League final after a barren three-season spell under Rodgers.
