Liverpool media round-up: Klopp's salary revealed as Reds confirm appointment

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Friday morning.

Liverpool have confirmed the appointment of former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp as their new manager on a three-year deal as their replacement for Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked by the Reds on Sunday evening. 

The German will be unveiled to the media at 10am this morning at a press conference, and his first game in charge of the Reds will be in eight days time when Liverpool travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

With all the quotes from the new manager likely to be released later this morning from the club at the press conference, the Daily Mirror have focused on how much the new boss may earn at Anfield, suggesting that he could be the third highest paid manager in the league behind Chelsea's Jose Mourinho and Arsenal's Arsene Wenger.

They suggest he could earn up to £7 million a year if he restores the Reds to their former glory, with various bonuses included in his contract. 

The Guardian reports his contract is a basic salary of £5 million a year, but do mention the £7 million figure as part of the package if certain clauses are met. As a result, he becomes the best paid manager in the club's history.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz will also be joining the club as part of Klopp's backroom staff having worked with him during a very successful spell at Dortmund.

It means that several members of the club's backroom staff have been relieved of their duties, including assistant manager Sean O'Driscoll and first team coach Gary McAllister - though the latter has accepted an ambassadorial role within the club.
