Echo's James Pearce: 'Buvac won’t be coming back'
- Pearce expects an official club's announcement of a Buvac's resignation soon
Klopp's long-serving assistant Zeljko Buvac left the club in the crucial stage last season. However, the club released a statement, saying he's still employed at Anfield.
“Buvac won’t be coming back. I’d expect his departure to be officially confirmed soon. Klopp was asked about the situation recently but insisted it was a private matter.
“Buvac was important on match days in terms of tactical input, especially at half-time. But he had become withdrawn towards the end of last season and less involved.
“I don’t see Liverpool being adversely affected by his exit. Lijnders has returned to the club and he’s a very popular figure. Klopp values his input greatly.”
