Jurgen Klopp has approached former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes to work as part of Liverpool’s backroom staff, reports media outlet AF.
The Scot has been out of work since Real Sociedad sacked him earlier this season, and despite the lure of Aston Villa’s vacant position, Moyes is expected to accept Liverpool’s offer.
“David knows England inside out. His teams have always worked hard on set-pieces, defensively and offensively, and Liverpool could do with that some of that knowledge,” Klopp told AF.
“I want us to play a blander, duller style of football in 2016/17 and David will be perfect for that.”
52-year-old Moyes will have to win over supporters having managed Liverpool’s bitter rivals Everton for 11 years. His stint at the Reds’ other rivals United didn’t last quite as long, but his failures at Old Trafford will raise further questions as to why Klopp chose to offer him work.
It’s not yet clear what will happen to Klopp’s current assistants, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, but it’s assumed they’ll be asked to move on having as of yet failed to gain internet meme stardom – unlike their probable replacement.
