Gary McAllister: Leaving Anfield

Four of Brendan Rodgers’ backroom at Liverpool are set to follow the manager out of Anfield as the club prepare to appoint Jurgen Klopp.

According to reports, assistant boss Sean O’Driscoll, first-team coach Gary McAllister, head of performance Glen Driscoll and head of opposition analysis Chris Davies have all been told they won’t be part of the new coaching set-up as German tactician Klopp plans to draft in his own men.

Klopp, who is expected to succeed Rodgers on Merseyside, will bring with him his own staff with Bosnian coach Zeljko Buvac becoming his No. 2 and Peter Krawietz appointed as the video analyst.

McAllister, who along with O’Driscoll, was only appointed by Rodgers three months ago after the sacking of Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh, could be offered a chance to stay at Anfield with a role in the Academy likely to be offered to him.

Driscoll and Davies, who had been at the club since Rodgers’ appointment in the summer of 2012, are certain to leave, according to the Liverpool Echo.

First-team development coach Pep Lijnders and head of fitness and conditioning Ryland Morgans are set to stay.

Former Borussia Dortmund coach Klopp is expected to arrive in Liverpool on Thursday afternoon with his unveiling set to take place at Anfield on Saturday.
