Jurgen Klopp To Be Unveiled As Liverpool Boss On Friday After Agreeing 3-Year Deal

Jurgen Klopp is expected to be unveiled as the new Liverpool manager on Friday after agreeing a three-year deal to take over at Anfield, according to the Mirror.
The Reds are on the look-out for a new boss after sacking Brendan Rodgers following their 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday which made it just one win from their last nine games in all competitions.
It was reported by Sky Sports News earlier this week that Liverpool had opened talks with both Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti but with the former Chelsea boss confirming he won’t return to work until next season, Klopp has now emerged as the odds-on favourite to replace the Northern Irishman.
Talks now appear to be at an advanced stage and the Mirror claim the former Borussia Dortmund manager will fly-in to the UK within the next 24 hours to finalise arrangements after agreeing a three-year deal with the option to extent by a further season.
While the newspaper suggests that Klopp will then be unveiled as the new Liverpool manager on Friday, Sky Sports News are still claiming that he’s yet to officially accept the job but will hold face-to-face talks with Anfield officials on Thursday where a deal is expected to be finalised.
If Klopp does take over from Rodgers, he’s likely to bring his former Dortmund assistant Zeljko Buvac and coach Peter Krawietz with him to Anfield as part of his backroom staff.
So it looks like Liverpool have moved quickly to bring in a new man and I think Klopp is the perfect choice to replace Rodgers. He enjoyed a hugely successful seven years at Dortmund where he won the Bundesliga title twice and took them to the final of the Champions League in 2013.
The 48-year-old is extremely passionate and a great motivator so he should get a lot more out of the current Liverpool squad, and I think he’s going to prove to be a very popular appointment once he’s officially confirmed as the new boss.
