Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has signed a new long-term contract with the club. The England international has put pen to paper on a five-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2027. Gomez was a target of a number of Premier League clubs including Aston Villa. He has won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool.
“It’s obviously a special moment for me and my family. 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,” Joe Gomez said after signing a new contract at Liverpool. “Obviously, I have been here quite a while now, but in the grand scheme of things I still feel young and, as 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.”
“I think as a group, the sky is the limit. We want to go one, if not two, better than last season and aim for it all,” he added. “We definitely have the ability to do that and the belief is there, it’s just about us taking it one game at a time, like we did last season, and just being true to ourselves, playing the way we play under the gaffer’s guidance. Who is to say we can’t go on to do more than we did last season?”
