Philipp Jacobsen added to Liverpool backroom staff

Philipp Jacobsen has been appointed as Liverpool's medical rehabilitation and performance manager.

Jacobsen joins from the Qatar-based Aspetar facility, which specialises in sports medicine and rehabilitation, where he was a senior physiotherapist and he will jointly work alongside Dr Andrew Massey at Melwood.

He has previously worked with the Qatar national team and Panathinaikos and recently accompanied Reds midfielder Adam Lallana on his rehabilitation trip to South Africa.

Also this week, Liverpool announced that Pepijn Lijnders had returned to the club to take up a position in Jurgen Klopp's coaching team.

The Dutchman ended a three-and-a-half year spell as a coach at Anfield in January to return home to take over NEC Nijmegen.
