July 07, (THEWILL) – Joe Gomez, a defender for Liverpool, has signed a new five-year contract, according to the Anfield club.
The 25-year-old played 21 games across all competitions and just eight English Premier League matches in the 2021/2022 season. He was featured as cover for Jurgen Klopp’s defence at both center-back and right-back and demonstrated readiness to compete every time.
Gomez’s previous contract with Liverpool was set to expire in 2024, but Liverpool moved quickly to secure his future at the club with a long-term contract until 2027, making it abundantly clear that he will not be leaving anytime soon.
In comments after the signing, Gomez said: “It’s obviously a special moment for me and my family,” he said. “Another one that you dream of as a kid and one I don’t take for granted. It is an unbelievable place to be; in my eyes, probably one of the best – if not the best – clubs in the world at the minute. The opportunity to extend my stay here was an easy decision to make, really.
“Obviously, I have been here quite a while now, but in the grand scheme of things I still feel young and, like you say, the best years are ahead of me. I have got more to learn and the time to do that. I think I have the platform here to do it with the manager and the coaching staff around me and my teammates, to make sure the best years are ahead.”
