Liverpool confirm Jurgen Klopp as new manager

Liverpool confirmed German coach Jurgen Klopp as their new manager on Thursday.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp has signed a reported three-year contract with the Premier League giants and succeeds Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked by Liverpool’s American owners on Sunday.

“Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce Jurgen Klopp has been appointed as the club’s new manager,” the club said in a statement on their official Twitter account.

“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.”

Klopp, whose first game in charge will be against Tottenham on October 17, arrives with Liverpool languishing in 10th place in the Premier League.
