New York – German coach Jürgen Klopp has agreed to become Liverpool’s new manager after a week filled with speculation about the name of the news “Reds” coach.
According to UK’s Express, the former Borussia Dortmund boss has signed a new deal at Anfield and will be arriving at Merseyside tonight.
Klopp departed Dortmund this afternoon and is scheduled to arrive in England aboard a private jet in the next two hours.
The German manager will land at John Lennon International Airport and then transported to a hotel downtown where the new manager deal signing will take place.
The 48-year-old has allegedly agreed to a three-year contract with ‘The Reds’ worth £7 million per year.
According to the same source, a press conference will be held on Friday morning to officially announce Klopp’s new post, which Liverpool is calling a “major club announcement”.
The German boss will be bringing to Anfield his assistants at Dortmund, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz.
Major changes at the “You’ll Never Walk Alone” club are already taking place over the new manager’s arrival.
Assistant manager Sean O’Driscoll will be leaving Liverpool and Gary McAllister has been given the opportunity to another non-coaching role within the club.
Klopp’s appointment comes after former manager Brendan Rodgers was sacked from the club last Sunday over a string of poor performances.
