Germany manager Joachim Low feels Jurgen Klopp would be "a good fit" for Liverpool because of their similarities with Dortmund.

Klopp, who spent 14 years in Germany as a manager with Mainz and then Dortmund, is expected to be named Brendan Rodgers' successor at Anfield on Thursday afternoon.

Low feels the emotional connection he forged with the supporters at Westfalenstadion could be replicated at Anfield, making him the ideal candidate to take on one of the biggest jobs in English football.

"I wouldn't know how negotiations are progressing but if the deal can be done then it will be good for both parties," said Low, who is currently preparing the German national side for their Euro 2016 qualifier against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

"Mr Klopp was hugely successful when he was manager of Dortmund.
