Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes the club have built a platform for future success by tying down key players to long contracts.
Left-back Andy Robertson’s new five-year deal has been followed by his full back partner Trent Alexander-Arnold also signing a new five-year deal until 2024 with the club.
The pair have been excellent this season and by signing on the dotted line they have followed the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson in committing for the long-term over the last 12 months.
Klopp is confident the nucleus of the squad will not be lured away by other clubs in the coming years. “In general it’s always a good sign to have the opportunity to extend contracts early,” said Klopp.
“If we can keep these boys together, we are in the middle of our development, so it’s good news for Liverpool. “These 17-18 players plus the really young boys, that’s the squad of the future. It should be like this.
“It’s investment, the club gave us the opportunity to do it. Really nice. “Progress is something everybody should expect. The club gave us fantastic opportunity to bring in outstanding players, to keep outstanding players.
My job is to make sure we perform on the pitch. “Where will we be in two or three years? I have no idea but the age group is good. This season will not finish our development.
“It doesn’t look like we’ll lose any key player (and) we build a new training ground, another step in the future.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
