Jurgen Klopp only took charge of Liverpool nine months ago, but he is already in line for a contract extension.

Even though his current deal runs through 2018, the Liverpool brass has been so impressed in his short time at Anfield that they are reportedly looking to extend that contract before the new season begins.

At each of his previous clubs, Mainz and Borussia Dortmund, Klopp stayed for seven years.

The 49-year-old led the Reds to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League while reaching both the League Cup and Europa League finals in his first year managing outside of Germany.

As the season progressed, Klopp’s fast-paced, high-pressing style of play became more evident, with both the players and fans buying into the German’s tactics.

Now with the transfer window open, Klopp has been allowed to bring in his own players to fit into his system, seen in the signing of Sadio Mane from Southampton.
