What happened to Zeljko Buvac? The ex-Liverpool assistant who mysteriously left

Jurgen Klopp had worked with his trusted assistant Zeljko Buvac for his entire coaching career, until the Bosnian unexpectedly quit Liverpool in 2018 – but where is he now?

He was famously nicknamed ‘The Brain’ by the Liverpool manager.

Peter Krawietz, who is still alongside Klopp as Liverpool’s assistant manager, also worked closely with Buvac.

So when Buvac left the club with no real explanation two days before the Champions League semi-final against Roma four years ago, there was an understandable concern as to how this could affect Klopp and his team.

In 2013, former Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin – a key player under the pair at Dortmund – said Buvac “was basically Klopp’s twin.” The pair saw the game through similar eyes, and there’s no doubt Buvac played a key part in Klopp’s success up until the split.

Buvac spent nearly three years as Klopp’s assistant at Anfield, even filling in during the manager’s illness for the 2-2 draw with Sunderland in 2016, before an unexpected departure 48 hours before the clash with Roma in April 2018.

Buvac in particular had a very close relationship with Klopp, which was why his sudden Liverpool departure came as such a surprise in 2018.
