Liverpool have hired the services of goalkeeping specialist Hans Leitert as Jurgen Klopp searches for a way to improve his players’ performances in the problematic position, according to a report.
The Sun states that Leitert, who is Austrian, is highly regarded after working in the Premier League for Tottenham and for Red Bull Leipzig in the Bundesliga with whom he has gained a wealth of experience in the European game.
The Austrian will work alongside current coach John Acherterg.
Liverpool’s problems in the net have been well-documented and with Simon Mignolet as inconsistent as ever and frequently as fault for indecisiveness as well as poor distribution, Jurgen Klopp has been switching between the Belgian and Loris Karius.
Only following the win over Manchester City last month, Klopp hailed Karius as his number one, but it was a statement that had Mignolet questioning his future at the club, due to his desire to play.
Karius was again given the nod last weekend in the 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur and will likely be the Reds manager’s choice in goal again for Sunday’s game against Southampton.
