Liverpool announced on their official website that Alex Manninger has signed on a free transfer from FC Augsburg.

Jürgen Klopp has continued his summer recruitment with the fifth signing of the window. The 39 year old goalkeeper has been training with Liverpool for a few weeks in an attempt to earn a contract and he has done just that.

Manninger told reporters from the club’s website after signing his contract in the United States:

“Honestly, it was a surprise. After these years, in Italy and the last four years in Germany, I hadn’t given up, I hadn’t said ‘that’s it’, I still waited for the phone call.

“When Liverpool was on the phone, it was a great pleasure for me to take it on because it gives me what I was looking for. This is the moment I was waiting for until the end.

“I’ve still got something left, for sure, but obviously it’s probably not the time for me to push for the next three or four years to get a place in the goal. Because time says it’s not possible to play 50 games a year. But if I’m called up, I’m definitely there for games, I will play. And I’ll definitely be in the changing room every game, giving my input; I hope, even if it’s only a couple of per cent, it will do the rest.”
