Jurgen Klopp agrees to become new Liverpool manager - reports
Jurgen Klopp has agreed the new manager of Liverpool according to Sky Sports.
Klopp, who guided Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles, a German Cup and runners-up spot in the Champions League before resigning at the end of last season after seven years in charge, has been widely tipped to take over since Rodgers was sacked following Sunday's 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Talks between the club and Klopp's representatives have been ongoing all week and is expected to be officially unveiled tomorrow.
Klopp has been touted as a candidate for the job for a number of years. He was their dream choice on taking over the club as far back as 2010 but Klopp was out of their reach as he enjoyed his peak spell in German football.
