Putting pen to paper, Gomez told Liverpool's official website, "Obviously it's a special moment for me and my family. Another one you dream about as a kid and one I don't take for granted." "It's an incredible place to be in my opinion, probably one of the best —if not the best— clubs in the world at the moment. The opportunity to extend my stay here was an easy decision to make, really.”

On seeing the center-back commit his future to Anfield, Klopp added to the Liverpool media team: "As a club, we've had a lot of good, very good news recently and this is another one”.

Gomez has suffered from injuries in his Liverpool career

Gomez has suffered several knee and ankle injuries since joining the Charlton Reds seven years ago.
