​Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is planning to oversee a process of change at Liverpool, following the extension of his contract until 2024. 


Since arriving at Anfield in 2015, Klopp has transformed the Reds into one of the best teams in Europe and led his side to a Champions League final win over Tottenham in May.

This success has carried over into the current campaign with Liverpool currently ten points clear of second placed ​Leicester at the top of the ​Premier League table. The German also has the chance to add the Club World Cup to his ever-growing trophy cabinet, when his team take on Flamengo in the final out in Qatar.


Klopp was rewarded with a new contract earlier this month that extended his stay at the club until the end of the 2023/2024 season, a reward for the Reds' continued improvement. Now, in an interview with ​ESPN, the 52-year-old asserted that he would carry out a process of evolution with the Reds during this period.


"We will see what we can achieve together in that time, but there will probably be a moment where we have to change things," Klopp said.


"Improve always, but to change things as well and I really thought it makes sense that I do that instead of another manager coming in and having to do this kind of not really thankful job and like rebuild or whatever and then say 'oh but Klopp would have done different' stuff like this."


The German also admitted that his emotional connection to the club remains as strong as ever and he wants to ensure that his successor has the best possible chance of continuing the Reds' success when he departs.


"This club became so important to me in a really short time. It's unbelievable, so I feel absolute responsible for probably too much, but nearly everything," Klopp stated.

"We are ready to win whatever we can, but to make sure because there is always a time after me, after another manager, that the club in the best possible position to carry on in the best possible way."


One potential successor for Klopp could be Reds legend Steven Gerrard, whose contract with Rangers also runs out in 2024.
