Carragher doubts Klopp will extend Liverpool contract

Jamie Carragher is doubtful that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will extend his contract at the club.

Liverpool won their first trophy of Klopp’s reign by becoming European champions at the end of last season, and the German currently has three years remaining on his deal at Anfield.

Former Reds defender Carragher has urged the club’s players to now push on and win as much silverware as possible under the German, especially the Premier League title, but admitted he doesn’t see Klopp extending his stay at the club beyond his current deal.

“This group of players have got to be looking at this next three or four years because Klopp’s got three years left on his contract,” Carragher told Pundit Arena.

“I’m not sure if he would sign another one. He’s only stayed at a club for seven years.

“Over these next three years, don’t just look and say ‘we’ve won the Champions League’. You want the league, that’s the obvious one.

“But [they could look back and say] ‘we got the FA Cup and two Carabao Cups’. They’ve got competitions this year, the World Club Cup, the Super Cup, just pick as much as you can before he goes.

“And hopefully, over the next two or three years, one of those will be the league for Klopp.”
