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.”
According to the club’s sources Klopp will earn £5m a year, rising to £7m with bonuses for a Premier League title or Champions League qualification. Former Dortmund manager is expected to bring his trusted men Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz to Anfield, who were his assistants at Dortmund.
Klopp will take time to settle in to his role of being the new Liverpool manager as there is an International break going on at the moment. He will have ample amount of time to assess his players over this period and think of the best starting XI when Liverpool take on Tottenham on 17th October.
