Assistant manager Sean O’Driscoll and first team coach Gary McAllister are set to lose their Liverpool jobs under the new management of Jurgen Klopp, according to the Guardian.

Klopp is set to be appointed either late on Thursday or midday on Friday, and it appears that the German has wasted little time in making his presence felt at Anfield.

According to the Guardian, both assistant manager O’Driscoll and first team coach McAllister will lose their positions as part of an overhaul instigated by Klopp, with his trusted backroom staff of Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz taking up the roles.

Both O’Driscoll and McAllister were appointed in the summer, with former boss Brendan Rodgers having thrown Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh under the bus after a terrible 2014/15 season.

The two were on one-year rolling contracts, although former midfielder McAllister could yet be offered a new role in Klopp’s set-up. Pepijn Ljinders will be retained under Klopp’s rule.

The Liverpool Echo believe that not only O’Driscoll and McAllister will leave, but that head of performance Glen Driscoll and head of opposition analysis Chris Davies will depart.
