Liverpool fans were left stunned last week when Jurgen Klopp’s right-hand man Zeljko Buvac suddenly left the club.
The 56-year-old has worked alongside Klopp as his assistant manager since the pair were at Mainz.
The duo have known each other for around 20 years, but prior to Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Roma, Buvac was given a leave of absence.
The official line from the club is that his position in Klopp’s backroom team has not been affected, but the Bosnian will not return for the remainder of the season.
Speculation has been rife regarding the possible reason behind Buvac’s exit, with The Mirror recently claiming that Buvac left following a huge bust-up with Klopp.
The publication claims that the assistant manager was approached by Arsenal regarding a potential coaching role, but decided to keep it a secret from the Liverpool boss.
Twitter account Anfield Express has since claimed that Buvac is back in Merseyside, and the fans have made it clear what they want to happen.
