The arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool is beginning to take shape. The German manager is expected to take the reigns at Anfield following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers on Sunday.
In a move that will come as little surprise, Rodgers' assistant manager Sean O'Driscoll and first-team coach Gary McAllister have left the club. Head of performance Glen Driscoll and head of opposition analysis Chris Davies have also departed.
But if Press Association journalist Simon Peach is right, the club have hardly handled the situation in a professional manner.

According to Peach, O'Driscoll only found out about his sacking when the news broke on Twitter. Hardly the most professional way to thank someone for their service.
In terms of incomings, Zeljko Buvac, Klopp's assistant at Borussia Dortmund and analyst Peter Krawietz are expected to join the Merseyside club when the 48-year-old's arrival is confirmed, as per the Guardian.
The two-time Bundesliga winning coach is expected to arrive on Merseyside before the end of the week and will be tasked with returning Liverpool to Europe's elite competition.
Despite a poor start to the season, the Reds are in a position where Champions League qualification is still possible if Klopp hits the ground running.
The Merseyside club are currently 10th in the Premier League but only two points behind the top four. Although, they have away fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City on the horizon.
With the squad currently assembled at Anfield, and the poor start Chelsea have had to the campaign, there is no reason why Liverpool can not achieve a top-four finish this season.
