Klopp: From Friday I'm a Liverpool man


Jurgen Klopp says he will be "a Liverpool man" from Friday amid increasing speculation he is to become the Premier League club's latest manager.

Klopp flew from Dortmund to Liverpool on Thursday with the club announcing a news conference for Friday where he is expected to be confirmed as Brendan Rodgers' replacement.

Speaking in Mainz prior to his departure, Klopp told Sky Sports News: "Yes from tomorrow on I'm 24/7 a Liverpool man.

"But now we have to go do some private things, so no time for media. See you tomorrow."

When asked where he would be on Friday, Klopp added: "You will see, we will see."

As Klopp moves closer to the Anfield job, Liverpool confirmed on Thursday that a host of Rodgers' backroom staff had left the club.

Sean O'Driscoll, Glen Driscoll and Chris Davies have all departed Anfield while club favourite Gary McAllister will remain in an ambassadorial position.
