Steve Bruce gives his feelings on Klopp’s appointment at Liverpool

Jürgen Klopp

Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp as head coach during the international break.

Klopp was named Liverpool head coach to replace the sacked Brendan Rodgers, and former Premier League manager Steve Bruce took to talkSPORT to give his feelings on the appointment.

Bruce, currently in charge of Hull City, said: “What he did in Dortmund was nothing short of miraculous, what he managed to achieve. And we are all intrigued by him. I think it’s his humility [which stands out]. He is just a normal football man who has a big enthusiasm, and it looks a really, really decent appointment.”

Bruce certainly seems to to share the same opinion as many others do concerning Klopp’s move to Anfield, with the general consensus being a positive one.

Klopp has proven himself a fantastic tactician and man motivator during his career, taking Borussia Dortmund from also-rans to Bundesliga champions. His teams play exciting attacking football, and the German boss has a keen eye on youth development, which means his sides are generally full of academy graduates.

There are no real negatives to consider when looking at Klopp being hired by the Merseyside club, and many believe he will be the man to take the side back to the pinnacle of English football.

He needs time to set his foundations in place, but the early signs have been positive about improving performance levels, and everyone has become exited to see the work that Klopp can do at Anfield over the coming months and years - if he is given the time to work his magic.
