Liverpool announce Pep Lijnders returning to Anfield

Liverpool announced Pep Lijnders has returned to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp will welcome Lijnders back to his coaching staff - after the Dutchman left his role as manager of NEC Nijmegen.

Highly rated Lijnders left Anfield in January to end a three-and-a-half year stay at the Reds - with Brendan Rodgers originally brining him to Merseyside.

He moved to Dutch second tier side NEC where he led them to a third place finish - but failed to get them promoted as De Graafschap and Emmen took the play-off places.

But is now ready to re-join the Champions League finalists Liverpool, with the club stating: "The Dutchman brought a three-and-a-half-season stay at Anfield to an end in January as he took up the managerial reins of NEC in his homeland.

"However, following his departure, Lijnders has agreed to rejoin Jurgen Klopp's backroom staff in a senior capacity."
