Jürgen Klopp reiterated his delight at Dejan Lovren’s new long-term Liverpool contract and predicted the centre-back will only improve over the course of the deal.
The No.6 put pen to paper on fresh terms with the Reds on Friday morning to prolong his already near-three-year Anfield stay.
And Klopp is confident Liverpool will reap the benefits of the decision as Lovren’s game enhances in the coming seasons.
He told reporters at Melwood: “I am really happy about this decision. In a situation like this, I know how football supporters think and if you would have asked them after the Dortmund game they would have said ‘Give him a 20-year contract!’ Then they see the Crystal Palace game and think ‘Can we find another team who would have him?’ Of course, the truth is in between.
