Jurgen Klopp has spoken as Liverpool manager for the first time in an exclusive interview with LFC TV and revealed that he wants to make life better for the club’s supporters.
The German tactician was speaking after putting pen to paper on a deal late on Thursday night, as confirmed by Sky Sports, and he will hold his first press conference as Liverpool boss on Friday morning.
His arrival comes after Brendan Rodgers was sacked by the club just hours after securing a 1-1 draw with city rivals Everton on Sunday, but the Reds will now look forward to a new era and hope that Klopp can deliver on his promises.
Amongst those promises from the eccentric former Dortmund boss is a desire to ‘make the lives of our fans better’ as mentioned above, as well as ‘turning doubters into believers now’.
Klopp arrives with the club currently languishing in 10th place in the Premier League table, although they remain just three points adrift of the Champions League qualification spots.
After an inconsistent start to the campaign under Rodgers, including two draws in the Europa League group stages, the Anfield faithful will hope that the German’s arrival will inspire the squad to produce his exciting brand of football that he instilled at Dortmund.
The 48-year-old will certainly benefit from having a week away from the spotlight to settle at his new club and work with the players that have remained behind during the international break, ahead of Liverpool getting back to work against Tottenham on October 17.
