    Lfc rumour

    59-year-old Buvac parted company with Jurgen Klopp under strange circumstances in April 2018 as Liverpool were heading towards their first Champions League final  that season.

    The duo worked successfully together for nearly two decades at Mainz, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool.

    After leaving the Reds for good, Jurgen Klopp and his new assistant Pep Lijnders went on to win a sixth European Cup, as well as the Club World Cup and a first league title in 30 years.


    Now the sporting director of Russian side Dynamo Moscow , Buvac in an interview with Russian journalist Nobel Arustamyan which has been removed from YouTube, said: "I did the coaching job, with the exception of the interviews.

    Buvac was speaking about the Reds success on YouTube interview video.

    "It felt like I’ve been the manager for all those 17 years. I had all the functions and tried to influence my team as much as I could to help them succeed, but I didn’t need that kind of attention."

    Liverpool ended their long wait to be crowned domestic champions this year and Buvac admits he hasn't even messaged Klopp to congratulate him on the achievement.

    He said: "I was happy for Liverpool, for the fans, for the players. But I didn't."

    Buvac also added he's not interested in seeking a No.1 role at any club,claiming to have had many offers.

    "I don't want to be a manager now," he continued. "If Barcelona calls me then of course I'll think about it but otherwise no.

    "You say I'm here just to stay occupied and wait for a better chance. But if you knew the kind of offers I had rejected during the pause in my career you wouldn't have said that. But I won't tell you which clubs."
