On their twitter account the club confirmed the news.

The tweet read:

nAccording to reports, the New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has left Dortmund on board a private plane and is heading for John Lennon Airport at Merseyside.

The 48-year-old German manager will be met by club officials and will be taken to a city centre hotel for the evening where he will put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

Jurgen Klopp has been joined on the flight to Merseyside by his wife Ulla and Peter Krawietz, who will be appointed as one of his new assistants.

As it is being said, there are currently no plans that Jurgen Klopp would go to either Anfield, Melwood or the club’s city centre offices in Chapel Street today.


Liverpool FC have called a 10am press conference for “a major club announcement” at Anfield on Friday morning when Klopp will be unveiled as Brendan Rodgers’ successor.

Talks with Klopp and his representatives were completed today before the former Borussia Dortmund boss flew to Merseyside.

Klopp, who won two Bundesliga titles during his time with Dortmund, will bring in Zeljko Buvac and Krawietz with him as part of his backroom staff. His first game in charge will be away to Tottenham in the Premier League on October 17.
