Jurgen Klopp’s assistant manager, Zeljko Buvac, has received a work permit to take up his role at Liverpool.
Buvac served as number two to Klopp at both Mainz and Borussia Dortmund, as the German garnered a reputation as one of the finest coaches in Europe.
Klopp will have his right-hand man alongside him ahead of his debut as Liverpool boss against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
Buvac will be involved in first-team training at Melwood on Wednesday, joining Klopp, who has worked with his new squad since Monday following his appointment last week.
Aside from spells as Klopp’s number two, Buvac also managed at Neukirchen and Republika Srpska following a 13-year playing career.
