John Arne Riise has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Jurgen Klopp signing a new contract with Liverpool.

Klopp recently committed his long-term future to Liverpool by signing an extended contract, as announced on the club’s official website.

According to BBC Sport, the German, who was appointed in his role in October 2015 following the departure of Brendan Rodgers, will remain at Anfield until 2022 under the new terms.

Klopp is one of the best managers in the world, and he has already done quite well at Liverpool.

Under the former Borussia Dortmund coach last season, the Premier League outfit reached the finals of the League Cup and the Europa League.

Liverpool lacked consistency under the German, but some of the football the team played was sensational and hugely attractive.

The Reds will be aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League next season.

It will not be easy, though, as the 2016-17 Premier League campaign promises to be hugely competitive.
