Jurgen Klopp described his Premier League debut as “cool” after watching his Liverpool side play out a goalless draw at Tottenham in his first game in charge of the Merseyside outfit.

Klopp stepped out into the White Hart Lane dugout as he was handed his first taste of Premier League football on Saturday lunchtime.

And the 48-year-old was clearly pleased by the way he was introduced to the Premier League.

Klopp told BT Sport after Saturday’s game: “It was cool, I like this. I don’t want to talk about me but first game in the Premier League, coming to White Hart Lane, not the worst place in the world, but it was cool.

“When we have the whistle, it’s good, before I tried to look at things I’ve never seen before. It’s a stadium, I’ve been in other stadiums! We’re in, now we can work.”

The former Borussia Dortmund boss, who was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at White Hart Lane earlier this month, watched his side dominate the opening exchanges but fail to make the crucial breakthrough.

Divock Origi was handed his first Premier League start up front, and the striker hit the bar with a first-half header.

Tottenham’s best efforts came when substitute Clinton N’Jie and Harry Kane tested Simon Mignolet, however the game ended up all square.
