    Klopp has enjoyed his best season yet on Merseyside, since succeeding Bredan Rodgers in 2015, the German has guided the Liverpool to the Europa League final in 2016 and the Champions League final last year.

    This season, the Reds were close to winning the Premier League title but finished second behind reigning champions Manchester City despite losing just one game all season and amassing 97 points.

    They also reached the Champions League final for the second successive season, where they won against Tottenham on Saturday night at Madrid.

    Klopp is currently under contract until 2022 after a huge six-year extension worth £7million-per-year he signed in July 2016.

    And, Werner, who was in Madrid to watch the game along with principal owner John W Henry and Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon, commend Klopp for the impact he has made since taking over as the club manager.

    "It's been a period of constant progress and it's been a real pleasure to watch the continual improvement of the team,” Werner told the Liverpool Echo.

    "It's been a wonderful time for the club. I remember when we locked in our position as one of the top four teams qualifying for the Champions League for next season, some people almost took it for granted because our goal really all year was to actually win the league.

    "We are extremely proud of what the whole team at LFC have accomplished. When I say 'we', I'm talking about John, Mike and I.

    "Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that when there is an atmosphere where people are empowered to work together as a team, great things can happen.

    "Obviously, it starts with Jurgen and his outstanding leadership. That's critical to everything that we've achieved this year.

    "Everybody is doing an extraordinary job working together and I am very proud of what the organisation has achieved, not simply on the pitch, but off the pitch too.

    "We don't really want to discuss his situation publicly, especially so close to the final. But I think you know that we think the world of him. We have already extended his contract once.

    "All I can say is that it's obviously important that he stays for as long as he likes. We believe that he's committed to Liverpool."
