Collymore and more: Twitter reacts as Klopp signs Liverpool deal
Stan Collymore and Neil Mellor take to Twitter after Jurgen Klopp pens Liverpool deal
Liverpool have confirmed Jurgen Klopp as their new manager.
The 48-year-old signed a three-year contract with the Merseyside outfit on Thursday night ending a week of speculation linking the German with the vacated position.
Liverpool sacked Brendan Rodgers on Sunday evening after a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
And Klopp, who quit his role as Borussia Dortmund manager in the summer, becomes Liverpool’s fifth manager in the past five years.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction after the first photos of Klopp in a Liverpool kit emerged on Thursday night.
Former Liverpool striker Neil Mellor is excited by the thought of what Klopp can achieve at the Merseyside outfit:
What a fantastic appointment from LFC. Klopp is here and there is plenty of excitement about what he can deliver.
