Samed Yesil believes his fortunes could change at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool striker Samed Yesil has told Omnisport that he is excited to work under his fellow German Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Yesil, 21, joined the Reds from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2012, but has made just two first team appearances for the club, before joining Swiss side Luzern on loan for the duration of this season.

The striker may have had few opportunities under former manager Brendan Rodgers, but he believes his fortunes could change now Liverpool have appointed their new boss.

Jurgen Klopp, formerly of Borussia Dortmund, became the club's new manager on Thursday evening, replacing Rodgers just days after the Northern Irish boss had left Anfield.

The German manager will take stock of his squad, and whilst Yesil is in Switzerland for the season, he does believe his career on Merseyside could change.

Speaking to Omnisport, Yesil believes that he can form a bond with his fellow German, and believes Klopp has made a great choice by moving to Liverpool.

"Probably I am coming back to the Reds and I am pretty excited about it because obviously he is German and I am a German as well," said Yesil. "So the communication will be a lot easier for me. In addition he is a guy that supports young players and that excites me as well."

"Ever since it was announced that Brendan Rodgers was no longer in charge of Liverpool, I checked almost every hour to see who would step into his footsteps. Yesterday I realised that Jurgen Klopp, who I know from the Bundesliga, is going to be Rodgers' successor for at least three years. I hope that things are changing for Liverpool in a positive way now. As he proved in Germany, Klopp is a great coach. It's a good decision to get him," he added.

Klopp's success in Dortmund - winning two Bundesliga titles and taking the club to the Champions League final in 2013 - has Liverpool fans excited about Klopp, and it appears that some of his squad are just as excited.
