According to the Daily Mirror former Borussia Dortmund manager Jürgen Klopp has agreed to become Liverpool’s next manager after talking to club principal owner John Henry, and will now fly to Liverpool in the next 24-hours to meet with the Anfield hierarchy before being unveiled as Brendan Rodgers replacement on Friday.
Former Liverpool star and fellow German Didi Hamann says that Klopp’s appointment cannot come soon enough, as the mood at the club has been flat, and thinks that the arrival of fresh ideas will be huge for morale.
He said: “The place has been like a morgue for a long time now, and it needed a lift from somewhere and that’s why the change of manager was a logical thing to do.
“The expectations and the mood couldn’t be any further down than it is at the moment at Anfield, so it is a great time to come.
“I don’t think with his appointment Liverpool will become title contenders overnight but you need to have a lift from somewhere and I think he can do this.”
From what we are hearing Klopp has agreed to a three-year deal with Liverpool, and after having already assessed the players he has available to him has said that he will not need to add many new faces in January.
Saying that however given the 48-year-olds defensive background we could perhaps expect to see a couple of new players brought in during the January transfer window with the club needing a left-back and a player to come in to allow Emre Can to play as a defensive midfielder as he does in the German national team.
