Red Bull Salzburg have confirmed that Pepijn Lijnders is the Austrian club's next manager.

Jürgen Klopp's assistant, who already confirmed he would leave Anfield earlier this season, will take over from Gerhard Struber in the Salzburg role.

Struber led Die Roten Bullen to the top of the table in the regular season but the club ultimately finished second in the Championship round behind Sturm Graz.

"I am very proud to become the new head coach of FC Red Bull Salzburg," Lijnders said about his appointment.

"This is a real privilege for me. After PSV Eindhoven, FC Porto and Liverpool FC, I am now moving to another exceptional club with a really good structure and a particular focus on youth development.

"I want to develop a mentality with the team that places a lot of emphasis on attacking style of play and where passion and hunger for success are the basis of everything.

"Together with my assistant coach Vitor Matos and the entire support team, we will do our best to help the club continue to grow in an ever-changing football world.

"My family has visited the city before and was overwhelmed by its beauty and the friendliness of the people. That was the last and important step for me in choosing FC Red Bull Salzburg."

Like Klopp, Lijnders will bid farewell to Liverpool fans this weekend as the Reds host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final game of the season.
