Liverpool announce that Pepijn Lijnders has returned to Anfield from Dutch club NEC to take up a role in the Reds' first-team coaching setup.

Liverpool have confirmed that Pepijn Lijnders has returned to Anfield to take up a role in the club's first-team coaching setup.

The Dutchman brought a three-and-a-half-season stay on Merseyside to an end in January when he became manager of Eerste Divisie side NEC.

Lijnders failed to steer the Nijmegen-based club to the Eredivisie, however, which led to his departure in May.

The 35-year-old has now agreed to rejoin Jurgen Klopp's backroom staff in a senior capacity, with the club releasing a short statement confirming his comeback on Tuesday evening.

Lijnders initially arrived at Liverpool in the summer of 2014 as first-team development coach to Brendan Rodgers and remained as part of the staff when Klopp was appointed in October 2015.
