Jurgen Klopp wants to see bravery and fun from his Liverpool side

The new Reds boss is focusing on stability in his first game against Tottenham this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp has urged his Liverpool players to be brave and play with 'fun in their eyes' when they take on Tottenham this weekend, reports Sky Sports.

The German took charge at Anfield last week following the sacking of Brendan Rodgers, and will take on Spurs at White Hart Lane this weekend for his first game as the new Liverpool manager.

He is looking to stabilise the club after a slow start to the season once again saw Rodgers lose his job, but primarily he wants to see that his side have worked together when they take on Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

"We want to look different, for sure," he told Sky Sports.

"That's what I expect, that we can see that we have worked together. I want to see more bravery, more fun in their eyes, I want to see that they like what they do.”

Focus on stability for Klopp 

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is also insistent that he is not concerned with the past, instead focusing entirely on the future of his side.

He has however admitted that he is fully aware that their lack of goals is a problem, with the Reds having struggled to put the ball in the back of the net so far this season.

Klopp though, believes that bringing stability to his side is the most important factor first, and that the goals and creativity will soon come once that has been established.

"We have to start new, a restart,” he added.

“I'm not interested in what happened a few weeks ago, only in what we can do to be stable in a game, I know that we have not until now had enough goals, but you have to feel stability and that can make you free for offensive play and creativity.”
