Peter Schmeichel has revealed Jurgen Klopp’s first mistake as Liverpool manager.

The 48-year-old faced the British media for the first time as Liverpool boss on Friday morning after he signed a three-year deal with the 18-time English champions.

Klopp, who is reportedly set to earn £15m over the next three years, promised Liverpool supporters that he will guide the Reds to the title by 2019.

However, former Manchester United goalkeeper Schmeichel believes ex-Borussia Dortmund manager Klopp made a mistake guaranteeing the top-flight crown.

Klopp will face Tottenham Hotspur in his first game as Liverpool manager at White Hart Lane on October 17. The Merseyside outfit are in 10th place in the Premier League and six points behind current leaders Manchester City.

Klopp took Dortmund to six in his first season in 2009, led them into the Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010-11 and 2011-12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign.

He earned even greater admiration in the 2012-13 season as he steered Dortmund all the way to the Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern Munich. Dortmund reached another domestic cup final in 2014, but again came up short against Bayern.
