Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann could be in contention to join Jurgen Klopp's backroom staff at Anfield. The latter was appointed as the Reds new manager on 8 October.

The Merseyside club allowed Brendan Rodgers to leave after a string of poor performances this season. The 1-1 draw in the derby against Everton was the Northern Irishman's last match as Liverpool manager as he was relieved of his duties just hours after the clash.

Klopp replaced Rodgers after the German manager signed a three-year deal. Following the former Swansea manager's exit from Anfield, the Reds allowed assistant manager Sean O'Driscoll, along with Glen Driscoll and Chris Davies to leave the club.

Liverpool's new manager is looking to add a former player as his backroom staff, hoping that will allow him to settle quickly in England. The Daily Mail claims Hamann could be in line for a coaching role at his former club.

He has set his sights on his compatriot to become his assistant at Liverpool. Hamann won the Champions League with Liverpool in Istanbul and is also a fan favourite. The ex-Reds midfielder has also already completed his Uefa Pro License.

Hamann was the player-coach at MK Dons and was also a coach at Leicester City. He was appointed as Stockport County's manager in July 2011. However, a string of poor results saw him resign later in November that year.

Klopp won two German league titles with Borussia Dortmund and guiding them to the Champions League final in the 2013/14 season during his time at the Signal Iduna Park. His United counterpart Louis van Gaal has kept Ryan Giggs as his assistant coach and the former Bundesliga boss wants to emulate him at Anfield.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has also expressed his desire to be a part of Klopp's backroom staff. It should be seen whether the 40-year-old would be considered for the post.

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't interested. I'd love to be on the backroom staff. Liverpool is a massive part of my life," Fowler said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"My personal opinion is he [Klopp] is a very good manager. I don't know him as a man, I've never met him. Looking on as an outsider, I was impressed with his performances in Germany for Dortmund. I like what I see.

"It's exactly the same with Carlo Ancelotti. I like his manner, I like Jurgen Klopp's manner. I like the way they are with their teams. They get their teams playing great football. Good football is what we deserve at Liverpool and both of these managers could supply that."
