Liverpool confirm Klopp appointment

Less than a week after sacking Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool have announced the signing of Jurgen Klopp as their new manager.

The club revealed Klopp was in the country and would be unveiled as the new Reds boss at a press conference scheduled for Friday morning.

"Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce Jurgen Klopp has been appointed as the club's new manager," the club posted on its official website on Thursday night.

"The German coach has signed a deal to take the helm at the Reds and will be presented at a press conference at Anfield on Friday morning," concluded the brief statement.

Rodgers was removed from his position after a poor start to the season for the Reds which sees them 10th with just three wins from their opening eight games.

Klopp has now has the task of reinvigorating the squad without being able to add to it until the next transfer window in January.

The former Borussia Dortmund mentor is expected to bring with him Bosnian Zeljko Buvac, who was his assistant at both Dortmund and Mainz.

A Bosnian paper published a story claiming both Buvac and Klopp had signed for Liverpool before the club had even officially announced the sacking of Brendan Rodgers.
