Paul Scholes will officially join Liverpool’s backroom staff in the coming weeks, reports AF.
The Manchester United legend currently works as a pundit for BT Sport, but will combine his role with a coaching position at Melwood, much like Steven Gerrard does with our U18 side.
Scholes has decided to switch allegiances, having played for United between 1993 to 2013, due to a row with Jose Mourinho at the training ground.
It’s said that Scholes confronted the Portuguese about his style of football, but was banned from Carrington after being labelled a ‘Poor Man’s Scott McTominay‘ by Mourinho.
“I spoke to Jurgen and I just like the way he does things,” Scholes told the Echo.
“I can’t deal with watching a single minute more of the agricultural football on display at my former home. It doesn’t look right. It doesn’t feel right. I’ve had enough.
“Klopp’s Liverpool are breathtaking. It’s a relief to be on the right side, to be honest.”
Klopp has sought out the former England midfielder due to his technical ability, and is interested to see if Scholes truly can hit a tree from 60-yards on his first attempt.
