Liverpool’s owners are keen to tie manager Jurgen Klopp down to a new, extended contract after the club’s Champions League triumph.

Up to 750,000 fans welcomed Klopp – whose current deal ends in 2022 – and his players home on Sunday after the 2-0 win over Spurs in Madrid.

Fenway Sports Group wants to secure the 51-year-old German for longer.

“Jurgen is a brilliant coach but just as importantly he is a humble and caring man,” said chairman Tom Werner.

“When the players threw Jurgen in the air after our victory, they were acknowledging what all Liverpool fans know – he is beloved by all who appreciate football.”
