Latest Liverpool news: Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend stay at Liverpool

German football expert Raphael Honigstein believes Jurgen Klopp will extend his stay at Anfield beyond 2022. The manager signed a new deal with Liverpool in 2016 which keeps him at the club until 2022, but the expert claims that Klopp will sign a new deal even if he fails to land a trophy.

Honigstein is also the author of “Bring the Noise: The Jurgen Klopp story” and said (h/t Daily Star)

“Klopp is totally happy at Liverpool and the club is totally happy with him. I think that he will renew his contract beyond 2022.

“Regardless of whether [Liverpool] become champions or Champions League winners, he will extend to 99.9 per cent.”

The Daily Star adds that Klopp had been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga giants are still open to signing the Liverpool manager.

Bayern still an option for Klopp

Honigstein did warn that Klopp could sign for the Bundesliga powerhouses later in his career:

“He is flexible and ambitious enough to think about this opportunity if there is another opportunity.”

Klopp has done an excellent job for the Reds even though he hasn’t picked up a trophy at Anfield. The Reds are in a strong position to win the league title and face Bayern Munich in the round of 16 in the Champions League.

Liverpool are possibly playing their best football in the Premier League era, and the next logical step is winning a trophy under the manager.

We have a great chance of doing that this season, and it will be interesting to see how things go in the league and the Champions League in the coming weeks.

Latest Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp charged over comments after West Ham draw

The Telegraph reports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been charged by the FA after his comments on referee Kevin Friend.

Friend was in charge of the game against West Ham which ended 1-1. There was controversy regarding Sadio Mane’s opener as James Milner was offside when he crossed the ball to the Senegal star.

The German claimed that Friend’s performance was affected after the assistant allowed Liverpool’s goal to stand. Antonio got the equaliser after Mane scored, and Klopp told Sky Sports (h/t Telegraph):

“As a human being, if I know I have made a big mistake in the first half, I don’t want to open the gap any more. Referees are obviously human beings, and I understand that, but I didn’t during the game because I had no clue that our goal was offside.”

The report adds that Klopp has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3 as he “questioned the integrity of the match referee and/or implied bias.”

The German has until 6 PM on 18 February to respond to the allegations.

Not the first run-in with the FA

This isn’t the first time Klopp has been hauled up by the FA this season. The Merseyside derby saw Divock Origi score a late-second goal and the German ran onto the pitch to celebrate with Alisson.

The manager was fined by the FA for this transgression, and it is to be seen what kind of punishment the FA could hand him should they find him guilty.

Latest Liverpool news: Billy Hogan claims Reds are looking into a new kit deal

Liverpool managing director Billy Hogan has claimed that the Reds are in talks over the most lucrative kit deal in the club’s history, according to the Liverpool Echo.

New Balance are the current kit manufacturers but their deal runs out at the end of the 2019/20 season. The Reds’ kits were previously manufactured by the sister company of New Balance, Warrior.

The report adds that the current deal is worth £45million per season, while Manchester United’s Adidas deal is worth £75million per year. The Reds believe they can receive such an amount.

The Reds haven’t ruled out re-signing with New Balance and Hogan told the Drum (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“We are in conversation with New Balance and we are in conversation with others as well.

“(The kit deal) is an incredibly important partnership – not just for the financial support it delivers for the club but also from the distribution standpoint.”

The report adds that the Reds are in a great negotiating position. Jurgen Klopp’s men are fighting for the Premier League title and are in the last 16 of the Champions League. The Reds also reached the finals of the Champions League last season.
