Jurgen Klopp has refused to shed light on whether he will be at Liverpool FC beyond 2022.

The German head coach signed a new deal with the Merseyside outfit in May 2016 to keep the 51-year-old contracted to the 18-time English champions for six seasons.

Klopp took over the reins of Liverpool FC from Brendan Rodgers in October 2015 as the Reds looked to appoint a manager capable of ending their title drought.

Liverpool FC have finished in fourth place in the last two Premier League seasons, while Klopp has lost three finals in the League Cup, Europa League and the Champions League in the last three years.

Klopp’s current side have built a lead in the title race to move ahead of defending champions Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Asked about his future beyond the end of his contract which expires in 2022, Klopp told Sky Sports:

“I don’t want to think that far ahead. If you write that already, a lot of people will speak. Everything is good at the moment, but still, ‘Klopp didn’t win anything’.

“I haven’t won anything so that’s part of the truth, we don’t have to think about 2022, it’s a long way to go. In the summer, there will be people who say it’s the best time for me to go if we win something because we will never win anything again, there will be other people who say I have to go if we don’t win anything.

“As long as we all enjoy the ride here, and I mean all – from the owners, the players to the supporters, to everyone around the club – we can try it and try it, but at the moment if one of those groups isn’t happy any more, then we shouldn’t stretch it and say ‘come on, try to do it’.

“It’s a good time, and 2022 is a long time so I don’t have to think about it hopefully, everything will be fine and then we can think about that.”

Liverpool FC signed AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and RB Leipzig star Naby Keita in the summer transfer window.

The Reds booked their place in the Champions League knockout stage thanks to a 1-0 win against Napoli in their final group game to finish behind Paris Saint-Germain.

Liverpool FC lost to Manchester City, Sevilla and Real Madrid in the League Cup, Europa League and Champions League finals.
