Jurgen Klopp has admitted he never dreamed about managing Liverpool but is nonetheless “humbled” to be at the club.
The German has been through a whirlwind weekend where he has been getting to grips with his new club and country after he was unveiled on Friday.
The 48-year-old became the clubs’ 20th manager after replacing Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked following the 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Klopp made an instant impression at his press conference with him revealing his plans for the season ahead with him keen to get a recognised playing style.
In an interview with Bild, relayed by the Guardian’s football editor Marcus Christenson, Klopp has said teaming up with Liverpoo was never a specific plan of his.
“Did I dream about managing Liverpool as a kid? No, I dreamed about playing for Stuttgart… But I’m very humbled to be here,” he posted on Twitter.
Klopp has began work ahead of his first game in charge, which will be away at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
