New Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp held his first press conference on Friday, and labelled himself the “normal one”.
The German tactician was speaking to the assembled media, as reported by Sky Sports, and discussed his approach to the job as well as what he hopes to achieve at Anfield.
Having enjoyed a stellar spell at the helm at Dortmund, Klopp will hope to repeat the success he enjoyed in his homeland during his new journey in the Premier League.
Given the timing of the appointment, the 48-year-old will have an opportunity to settle during the international break with a view of preparing his squad for their game against Tottenham on October 17.
Nevertheless, Klopp wasted little time in endearing himself to supporters and the English media as he played down the pressure on him to produce at such a big club and restore the faith of the supporters, as noted Sky Sports.
Amongst his most memorable first-day soundbites, was his play on Jose Mourinho’s suggestion when the Portuguese tactician first arrived in England when he claimed that he was the “special one”, as reported by The Guardian.
It remains to be seen whether or not Klopp can adapt and adjust his managerial style to the Premier League outfit, as he will initially look to improve on the inconsistency that the club have shown so far this year which has left them in 10th place in the current league standings.
