Liverpool confirmed the appointment via a statement on their official website, just four days after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers on Sunday.

The Liverpool statement read: “Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce Jürgen Klopp has been appointed as the club’s new manager.

“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.”

The 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund boss has been the heavy favourite to take over at the Merseyside club following Rodgers’ dismissal at the weekend.
