Robbie Fowler shares eight-word reaction as Klopp reportedly pens new Liverpool contract
Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has welcomed reports claiming Jurgen Klopp has penned a contract extension at Anfield.
On Thursday afternoon, The Athletic claimed that the Liverpool manager has signed fresh terms until the summer of 2026.
Klopp already had a contract until 2024, but his future beyond then was somewhat uncertain.
As recently as March, the Liverpool boss had indicated that his plans to leave Anfield in 2024 had not changed.
“Nothing has changed and if I decide to [leave] in 2024 it’ll be nothing to do with the quality of the squad,” The Mirror quoted him as saying.
“All we do is for the long term. This club must be even better when I am not here anymore. That’s the plan.”
However, The Athletic now reports that Klopp been re-energised by his side’s chase for the quadruple this season.
The German and his “closest staff” have agreed to extend their stays at Anfield, added the report.
Fowler took to Twitter with an eight-word message, the lyrics / title of the chant “I’m so glad that Jurgen is a Red”.
Just yesterday, Klopp led Liverpool to a Champions League semi-final first-leg victory over Villarreal.
Mike Gordon, the president of Fenway Sports Group, was in attendance at Anfield.
It is thought he was there to help progress a new deal with Klopp, whose agent Marc Kosicke was also at Anfield, a few seats away from Gordon.
Liverpool have already won the Carabao Cup this season.
They also sit second in the Premier League, are in the FA Cup final and have a 2-0 advantage in the Champions League semi-final first-leg.
