LIVERPOOL assistant Zeljko Buvac has walked away from the club just days sbo128 before the second leg of the Champions League semi-final.
The Bosnian-Serb has worked alongside Jurgen Klopp for 17 years during spells at Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.
But it appears Buvac has now left the club before one of the biggest clashes in the club's history.
According to the Daily Record, Klopp and his No 2 have fallen out in recent weeks, which has contributed to the exit.
A source close to Liverpool told the publication: “Klopp and Buvac had a big falling out.
"And Buvac has been left completely out of the loop of late.
“They stand apart in training, sbo128 Buvac doesn't go to tactical meetings, and he is no longer involved in picking the team.
"In the past, he was the only one who had Klopp's ear.
"The relationship had broken down."
Liverpool players have been told of the coach's exit and are said to be 'shocked' at the news.
Buvac partnered Klopp at Mainz back in 2001, and the duo went on to ensure promotion to the Bundesliga for the lowly German outfit.
Mainz also qualified for the Uefa Cup under the partnership.
Buvac then followed his counterpart to Dortmund, winning two league titles and reaching the Champions League final.
It is unclear who will replace the No 2 at Anfield. sbo128
