Jurgen Klopp has provided some great soundbites in his first press conference as Liverpool manager.
“Itâ€™s the biggest honour I can imagine,” he said of his appointment. “I can believe in the potential of this team. I am the normal one!
“I am a normal guy and donâ€™t compare myself to these genius managers in the history of Liverpool.
“It’s cool that all the fans are looking forward to the next few months and years with me but no one of these great managers said at his first press conference ‘I want to be a legend’.
“Now we have to work in the present.”
Asked what attracted him to the job, Klopp — who has vowed to bring “full-throttle” football to Liverpool — said: “The intensity of the football, of how the people live football in Liverpool and all Liverpool fans around the world.
“It is not a usual club. It is a special club. I had two very, very special clubs with Mainz and Dortmund. It is the perfect next step for me to be here and try and help.”
