Liverpool are reportedly set to make another addition to Jurgen Klopp’s backroom staff, with goalkeeping coach Jack Robinson said to be in talks over joining the setup.
Klopp has recently brought in throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark and Phillipp Jacobsen, who has taken on the title of Medical Rehabilitation and Performance Manager.
Their appointments followed the rumoured exit of long-term number two Zeljko Buvac, which is yet to be confirmed officially, and the return of Pep Lijnders as first-team coach after a season managing Dutch side NEC.
Jurgen Klopp has given a rousing backing to his new-look backroom staff.
The ECHO understands Zeljko Buvac won't return to the club with his exit likely to be confirmed by Liverpool during the coming weeks.

Now Klopp wants input from Robinson, who currently works with U15, U16 and U17 England goalkeepers.
The former Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Leeds United coach would be tasked with aiding the development of promising young ‘keepers Caoimhin Kelleher and Kamil Grabara, while John Achterberg would continue his work with senior figures Alisson Becker and Simon Mignolet, according to David Lynch of the Evening Standard.
Kelleher and Grabara could be in line for minutes in the cup competitions this season, with the departure of Loris Karius moving them up the pecking order.
