Jurgen Klopp loses another backroom staff member as 'highly-regarded' figure leaves Liverpool
| Last updated
A “highly regarded” figure in Jurgen Klopp’s backroom staff has left Liverpool.
Liverpool analyst Dominic Price has left the Reds to take over as technical director at Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The 32-year-old will work alongside former Liverpool striker Robbie Keane, who was recently appointed head coach of the Israeli Premier League outfit.
As per the Athletic, Price was a “highly regarded” member of Klopp’s backroom staff, who had a particular focus on post-match analysis.
While Liverpool didn’t want to lose him, the club reportedly appreciated the Maccabi Tel Aviv role represented a major promotion.
Price is the latest of Liverpool staff to have left the club, with sporting director Julian Ward, director of research Ian Graham and academy coach Tim Jenkins having also departed in the recent past.
Who is Dominic Price?
Price worked his way through the ranks at Liverpool, having first joined the Merseyside outfit as a coach from one of their international football academies in 2011.
He left to join Blackpool as first team performance analyst back in 2022, but returned to Liverpool as first team post-match analyst just two years later.
Maccabi CEO Ben Mansford said, via the Athletic: “Dominic will manage all technical aspects of the first team operations including recruitment, performance analysis, sports science data and its interaction with the medical department.
“Dominic will also further embed best practice across Maccabi’s youth academy in the same areas as we look to drive forward with greater analysis and integration of data to support the club’s continued progression.
“We are convinced Dominic’s proven skills and attributes will help push Maccabi forward.”
There have also been player arrivals this summer, as Klopp looks to navigate the biggest squad shake-up of his tenure.
Having already secured a deal for Alexis Mac Allister last month, Liverpool announced their second summer signing, Dominik Szoboszlai, over the weekend.
The Reds completed the signing of the 22-year-old from RB Leipzig for £60million, with the midfielder putting pen to paper on a five-year deal until 2028.
