Jurgen Klopp & Zeljko Buvac had ‘huge rows’ – Raphael Honigstein

Zeljko Buvac leaves Liverpool

At the start of an enormous week for Liverpool in which they can book their place in the Champions League final, things have got off to a rocky start.

In a shock to most Liverpool fans, coach Zeljko Buvac has left Liverpool.

Zeljko Buvac, who has worked alongside Jurgen Klopp for the past 17 years, is known as the ‘brain’ for being the tactical guru in Klopp’s backroom staff.

How will Buvac’s departure from Anfield affect Liverpool’s preparations for the Roma match?

Liverpool have a 5-2 lead over Roma from their first leg at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp vs Zeljko Buvac

German football expert Raphael Honigstein literally wrote the book on Jurgen Klopp.

On Monday, after the Buvac news broke, Honigstein has revealed that Klop and his coach have feuded for years.

The angle Honigstein stressed is that Buvac’s Liverpool career may not be over quite yet.

What went wrong with Zeljko Buvac?

In the Times, Paul Joyce have dug into the current fallout between Liverpool’s manager and coach.

It’s made clear that Bovac has left Anfield for “personal reasons”.

Readers were then told the following:

It is understood Buvac has become increasingly distant and withdrawn around the club, and visibly less engaged during matches recently, and it is that, rather than any specific fall-out with Klopp, which has resulted in his stepping back from first-team duties in the aftermath of the stalemate with Stoke City on Saturday.
