The deal has new been renewed well ahead of its expiry next year, though neither party revealed the terms of the new deal.

Klopp will continue to appear on advertising campaigns for Opel cars in his native Germany, and around the world, for the duration of the ‘long-term’ deal, promoting its new ‘the future belongs to all’ slogan.

The 49-year-old guided Liverpool to a fourth-placed finish in the 2016/17 Premier League season, meaning the side will face a qualifier to enter the 2017/18 Uefa Champions League.
