Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has signed a new long-term contract, the club have announced.

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach was appointed in October last year after Brendan Rodgers was sacked following a disappointing start to the season.

The 49-year-old has been rewarded for a promising first nine months in the role with a new deal which is reported to take him through until 2022, with his previous contract having been set to expire in 2018.

Klopp said on the club's official website: "It's hard to express in words how honoured myself, Zeljko [Buvac] and Peter [Krawietz] feel by the commitment shown in us by the ownership and the club in general.''

"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.''

"I am the first to recognise that with this great commitment comes a great responsibility. All of our coaching careers we have looked to make teams and clubs better, with the ultimate goal of making the supporters proud and happy.''

"There is much to do and much to achieve and we look to do this by being the most completely together group anywhere in the world."
