Former Liverpool players line up to welcome Jurgen Klopp to Anfield

Anfield Kop

Jurgen Klopp arrived to a hero's welcome at Liverpool on Friday, and it wasn't just the fans who were delighted to see the German become the Reds' new boss.

The charismatic German put pen to paper on a three-year deal on Thursday evening before he was unveiled as the Reds' new manager in front of a packed out press room at Melwood on Friday.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach spoke of managing expectations, and said that he was not overawed by the history and heritage of the 18-time champions, as reported by The Liverpool Echo.

Klopp also mentioned how he aimed to crown Liverpool as Premier League champions within four years, and the ex-BVB man has united a huge global fanbase that had become disillusioned and even apathetic towards the tail end of Brendan Rodgers' reign as boss.

The German coach's first game in charge is away to Tottenham Hotspur on October 17, and optimism around the club is at fever pitch and hasn't been seen since Rodgers almost led the club to a first title in 24 years back in 2013-14.

It is not just the supporters who have immediately taken to Klopp, though, as a number of club legends, former greats and cult heroes have all lined up to welcome him to Anfield.

Here are the best ones below, featuring the likes of Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso, and of course, Titi Camara!
