Liverpool FC have confirmed the signing of former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp on Thursday.

Klopp who initially embarked on a sabbatical after walking away from the job at the Signal Iduna park reportedly put pen to pay in a three-year deal said to be valued at around £7 million a year.

The 48-year-old had been linked to the Anfield job as far back as last season but the Fenway Sports Group owners of Liverpool have only now succeeded in landing him.

Klopp is expected to turn things around at the club, following a poor run of form that has seen the club winning just three of their last eight games in the league, despite spending a huge sum of money during the summer transfer window to bring in players like Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, Sebastian Clyne and so on.

The German is regarded as one of the best managers in Europe after taking over struggling Borussia Dortmund in 2008 and turning them to back-to-back Bundesliga winners in his third and fourth seasons.

He equally took them to the finals of the 2013 UEFA Champions League which they narrowly lost to bitter rivals, Bayern Munich.

He is expected to be unveiled at 10.00GMT (11am Nigerian Time).
