Liverpool insider sheds light on 'extraordinary' Buvac exit

Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp and assistant manager Zeljko Buvac attend a team training session on the eve of the UEFA Champions League first leg quarter-final football match

They were reunited when Klopp made him his assistant after becoming Mainz coach in 2001 and were also together at Borussia Dortmund from 2008-15. In the past, he was the only one who had Klopp's ear.

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their despair that assistant manager Zeljko Buvac will be absent for the rest of the season.

The Bosnian-Serb will not be traveling with the team to Rome due to personal reason which the club has refused to disclose as he will be away from the club until the end of the season.

He is the familiar long-haired figure next to Klopp in Liverpool's technical area and has always been regarded as man with the expertise, credentials and close personal relationship to be able to play a key role in the German's decision-making.

There were reports Buvac left Liverpool after a falling out with manager Jurgen Klopp. Together with Peter [Krawietz] we have six eyes. He's the one I've learned the most from.

"If it is necessary, I get up from the bench and that is okay". In October, head physio Andy Renshaw was sacked, with a shake-up of the club's medical department expected in the summer.

Klopp has described Buvas as "the brain" behind his coaching set-up in the past, and his absence is an unwanted distraction as Liverpool look to hold onto their 5-2 first leg lead against Roma.

2005 Champions League victor with Liverpool Hamann said Buvac's absence was "huge news". Captain Jordan Henderson and defender Joe Gomez suffered ankle knocks against Stoke, while Trent Alexander-Arnold was substituted due to a dead leg. Sadio Mane missed the game due to a thigh issue, though all four are expected to make the trip to Italy.

On a more positive note, striker Roberto Firmino has signed a new "long-term contract" with Liverpool.
