LIVERPOOL WILL ANNOUNCE Jurgen Klopp as their new manager later today, according to Sky Germany.

The Premier League club sacked Brendan Rodgers hours after Sunday’s 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby but they immediately made the highly-regarded German coach their number one target and have acted swiftly to put a three-year deal in place.

48-year-old Klopp began his managerial career with Mainz but it was during a seven-year spell at Borussia Dortmund that he made his name — winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles and one German Cup as well as finishing runners-up in the 2013 Champions League final.

He will be unveiled at a press conference tomorrow morning and is expected to bring in his own coaches, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, as Gary McAllister and Sean O’Driscoll have been relieved of their duties today.
