Xabi Alonso has welcomed Jurgen Klopp to the Liverpool family.

The highly-coveted German manager was appointed as Brendan Rodgers’s successor on Thursday after the 48-year-old put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Anfield.

Alonso enjoyed a successful five year spell at the Merseyside outfit between 2005 and 2009, winning the Champions League and FA Cup before finishing as a Premier League runner-up in his final season.

The Spain international currently plays for Borussia Dortmund’s rivals Bayern Munich, but his current allegiance didn’t prevent the midfielder from sending a message to BVB’s former manager Klopp.

Klopp takes over Liverpool in tenth place in the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw with Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

The Reds face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in their next Premier League game, which will be Klopp’s first in charge of the Reds.
