It is widely believed Peter Krawietz and Zeljko Buvac, members of Klopp's backroom staff at Borussia Dortmund, will join the Merseyside club.

There have also been suggestions that the German manager could opt for some former Anfield favourites, with Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler all being mentioned.

According to the Mail, Klopp is keen to reunite with former Mainz teammate and current Borussia Dortmund II coach and former United States international forward David Wagner.

The pair played together for Mainz from 1991 to 1995 and worked together once again when Wagner joined Dortmund's reserves in 2011. 

Gary McAllister, Sean O'Driscoll, Chris Davies and Glen Driscoll have all left the club today as Liverpool make room for Klopp's new men. 

However, according to the Independent, McAllister will be offered an ambassadorial role, but it is not clear yet as to whether he will accept the position.


Despite arriving at Anfield with a glittering reputation following a successful seven-year spell at Dortmund, the Premier League will not be an easy task for Klopp.

He is somewhat of an unknown entity in the Premier League and the expectation will be on him to produce results from the off. 

With away trips to Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City before the end of November, the next eight weeks could make or break the Reds' season.
