Jurgen Klopp explains decision to appoint new goalkeeping coach

    Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has explained the decision to appoint Brazilian goalkeeping coach Claudio Taffarel to his staff.

    The legendary former goalkeeper joined the Reds on Tuesday and will work alongside current coaches John Achterberg and Jack Robinson while continuing in his role with the Brazil national team.

    Taffarel helped his country triumph in the 1994 World Cup final, saving Daniele Massaro’s spot-kick in their shootout win over Italy. He also won the Copa America in both 1989 and 1997 and since retiring in 2003 he has taken up several coaching roles, also enjoying two interim spells in charge of Galatasaray.

    Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Wolves in the Premier League, Klopp was asked about the decision to bring Taffarel on board.

    “I had for a while already the idea when I saw all our extremely talented goalkeepers,” he said.
