Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has penned a new long term contract with the club.
The 21 year old has been an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s setup and has extended his stay until 2024. Alongside Virgil van Dijk, Gomez has been a mainstay in stabilising the Liverpool backline this term as the Reds have had the meanest defence this term leaking just six goals.
Gomez’s strong show in the Red jersey also saw him getting a call up from Gareth Southgate to represent the Three Lions. The youngster is currently recuperating from a fractured leg as he was on the receiving end of a strong Ben Mee Tackle in the 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League.
Gomez sounds delighted having renewed his contract with the club. “Signing this new deal means the world to me.
“I’ve been at the club a few years now and have had the pleasure to play for Liverpool and experience what that means, so I am delighted to get the chance to extend my contract here.
“I love the club, I love playing and learning here, and I am happy for that to continue.”
“There have been a lot of highs and lows, it’s my fourth season now and every one has been different
“Obviously I would like to have had a few less setbacks along the way, but it has all been part of my journey – one that I have loved and embraced. I have learned so much.
“There have been good times on the pitch as well. Hopefully that can continue. I am learning under a great manager and great coaching staff and have all the tools around me to keep progressing and learning. I am looking forward to it.”
