Liverpool Football Club have announced German Coach Jürgen Klopp as the club’s new manager.
The former Borrusia Dortmund Coach has already signed a deal to take the helm at the Reds and will be presented at a press conference at Anfield on Friday morning.
Klopp is the 20th coach for the Reds who were forced to give erstwhile manager Brendan Rodgers the boots following the 1-1 Merseyside derby stalemate with Everton last Sunday.
It is understood that Klopp will be bringing his own assistants in Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz who were part of his set up at Borussia Dortmund and it remains to be seen whether there be a role for any player with Liverpool links in the new set-up.
With most of the Liverpool squad away on international duty at the moment, Klopp, who is just the second German after Felix Magath (Fulham) to manage in the Premier League, has nine days to get used to his new surroundings before taking charge of his first match away at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, October 17.
Klopp will be starting from 10th spot in the Premier League, six points behind leaders Manchester City and three behind the top four in what is a congested top half of the table.
