Liverpool set to appoint Jurgen Klopp as manager

Liverpool are expected to name former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp as their new manager on Thursday, the BBC reports.

The 48-year-old is set to arrive on Merseyside for further negotiations with the Anfield club before signing a three-year contract.

The German would replace Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked on Sunday following the 1-1 Premier League draw at derby rivals Everton.

Klopp wants former assistants Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz as coaches.

Bosnian Buvac, 54, and German Krawietz, 43, were key members of Klopp’s backroom team during his time at Dortmund.

Liverpool had also been considering former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti, who is out of work.

But the 56-year-old Italian has suggested he may only return to management next season.
