Jürgen Klopp expects Liverpool's goalkeepers to benefit from the addition of Jack Robinson to his backroom staff.
The club announced on Monday that Robinson is set to join as first-team assistant goalkeeping coach, a role that will see him work alongside John Achterberg and the Reds’ ‘keepers at Melwood.
Robinson has spent the last two-and-a-half years coaching England’s U15-U17 goalkeepers after a seven-year spell working with academy and first-team stoppers at Manchester United.
His career has also included periods with Crystal Palace and Leeds United and Klopp believes Robinson will prove to be a valuable addition to his coaching team.
The manager told Liverpoolfc.com: “He is very young and very experienced - you don’t get that a lot of times.
“A goalkeeper coach, we spoke about it a lot of times between the coaching staff together with John Achterberg [as] there were times when we had five goalies in training.
“In the moment it looks a bit different [because] Loris has left, Wardy left and now Caoimhin is injured but will be back, and then Kamil is there, Simon and Alisson, so we have four goalkeepers and we really think they need our whole focus.
“So, John thought it makes absolute sense that we brought in another guy as his assistant. That’s what we were looking for and we found him. He’s a fantastic guy, a really nice fella and how I said, still young and experienced.
“He’s done a lot of different jobs and everybody is speaking really highly of him. When we met him it was a really nice meeting and we saw videos of his sessions and all that stuff, so we’ve really picked him out of a lot of others and we were really happy when he agreed and he wanted to join us.
“It’s good, it will be good for our goalkeepers and I have four, five, six assistants, so now John Achterberg has one at least! That’s good.”
