Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has agreed a two-year contract extension committing him to the club until 2026.
Klopp, 54, joined the Reds in 2015, but suggested in March he would follow through with a plan to take a break from the game when his deal ended in 2024.
But the club have signed Klopp and his staff to longer deals at a time when the team is chasing a quadruple.
He said he was “delighted, humbled, blessed, privileged and excited”.
Klopp added: “When the owners brought the possibility to renew to me, I asked myself the question I’ve mused over publicly. Do I have the energy and vibe to give of myself again what this amazing place requires from the person in the manager’s office?
“I didn’t need too long to answer in truth. The answer was very simple… I’m in love with here and I feel fine.”
Klopp’s quote refers to an adapted version of The Beatles song I Feel Fine that Liverpool fans have taken to chanting in support of him in recent weeks.
His assistant managers Pep Lijnders and Peter Krawietz have also signed extended deals, a move Klopp said was “massive” for him in order to “continue the continuity of our project together”.
