Schmadtke will take over from Julian Ward, who is leaving after more than a decade at Anfield that featured Premier League and Champions League titles. Mike Gordon, the president of Fenway Sports Group, the club's US-based owners, told Liverpool's website that Schmadtke "will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience into a role in which such qualities can only be beneficial both to him and us."
Liverpool manager Klopp, speaking earlier this month when asked about the possibility of compatriot Schmadtke joining the club, said: "I know he is a good guy and a smart guy. Very good at what he did in Germany, definitely, very successful."
