Gary Lineker comments on first impressions of Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool boss

J├╝rgen Klopp

New Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has given his first press conference.

BBC pundit Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter in order to give his verdict on Jurgen Klopp’s first interview as Liverpool boss, saying he was mightily impressed.

The German coach swiftly inherited the Reds reins on a three-year following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking last weekend, an appointment which has been widely heralded by pundits and fans alike.

Klopp achieved enormous success at Borussia Dortmund and is widely regarded as one of the most charismatic coaches in football – a trait which make him all the more popular.

Speaking as Liverpool boss for the first time, Klopp came across as a calm, well-spoken and humorous, prompting Lineker to share some positive words on Twitter.

Reasons to be excited:

While Klopp may wish to be called the ‘normal one’ – a clear reference to Jose Mourinho’s famous ‘Special One’ quote – he is anything but and Liverpool supporters have every right to be excited.

Aside from his likeable personality, Klopp knows how to get the best out of his players, and the style of football will always be fast-paced, positive and easy on the eye.

Many have speculated as to what will happen in regards to recruitment, and if previous experiences are taken into account, then the Reds should give Klopp a free reign over who he wants to sign.

Players such as Mats Hummels, Robert Lewandowski, Shinji Kagawa and Neven Subotic are all clear examples of the sort of quality Klopp can find and develop for bargain fees.
