This is a little odd and a little worrying.
Jurgen Klopp’s number two Zeljko Buvac, who’s worked with Liverpool’s manager for 17 years, has suddenly left the club.
The 56-year-old, known as ‘The Brain,’ has tendered his resignation, just days before our trip to AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final, reports the Mirror.
The rumour mill is suggesting that Buvac’s relationship with Klopp has broken down and he’s become little more than a spare part at Melwood, no longer involved in picking the team or tactical meetings.
In terms of timing, it’s a little odd.
Liverpool fans were jubilant yesterday after Roberto Firmino signed a new long-term deal, but concerned by the odd news on Buvac.
It must have been quite a falling out for the Serb to not wait until the end of the season and quit in such sudden, alarming circumstances.
We’ll wait to see what the club has to say, but as of yet, there’s no word.
