Jurgen Klopp former assistant Zeljko Buvac has admitted that he broke ranks with the German before leaving the club 18 months ago.
Buvac was one of the most trusted lieutenants of Klopp since their days at Dortmund but left Liverpool under unclear circumstances to pursue ‘personal interest’ but in latest interviews, he has come out guns blazing on Klopp and even claimed that Liverpool’s recent success is a product of his work.
Speaking with Nobel (h/t tribal football), Buvac said: "It's a sign that this isn't a good question! "Everyone asks how and why, but people live together for 30 years and then they break up. It happens."
Buvac is now sporting director of Dynamo Moscow and when asked about his new role, he said he was determined to help his new club achieve their goals with his experience.
"There is something special about new beginnings and that is important to me. In addition, from the first negotiations, it became clear that Dynamo is facing very big tasks.
"They want to win and go higher and I realised that with my experience and with my knowledge, I can help Dynamo achieve their goals. An additional motivation was that I would live in a new country, learn a new language and get to know the mentality.
"Moscow is a very beautiful and big city and I am interested in the prospect of elevating Dynamo," he added.
