New Liverpool sporting director Jorg Schmadtke admits he's closer to Jurgen Klopp's agent than the Reds manager.

Schmadtke's appointment was announced by Liverpool on Monday and he has detailed what he expects to find at Anfield.

"The influence of the coach on transfers is greater in England than in Germany, where a sports director holds everything in one hand," he said, speaking to Sport1.

"Jurgen Klopp sets the priorities. We set him up with a team of data analysts, scouts and so on, so he can then choose from a list of players who he wants to work with.
