Jurgen Klopp met new Liverpool FC signing Sepp van den Berg for the first time as some members of the Reds squad returned for the first day of pre-season training on Saturday.

The Champions League winners have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer window so far, despite being an attractive destination for new player this summer.

Liverpool FC have been linked with some big names in the current transfer window but Klopp has only brought in 17-year-old Van den Berg to bolster his Reds squad ahead of the new season.

The Reds signed the teenage defender in a £1.6m deal from PEC Zwolle ahead of Dutch duo PSV Eindhoven and Ajax.

Van den Berg was waiting at the club’s Melwood training ground to meet Klopp ahead of the start of pre-season training at the Anfield side.

The exchange was filmed by the club’s social media team as Klopp remarked at the size of his new teenage signing.

“Sepp, nice to meet you. My god – tall,” Klopp said.

“That’s impressive it’s different when you see only in images. It’s nice to have you here, how are you?”

Van den Berg replied: “I’m good. I’m excited but a little bit nervous. Yesterday when I came from the airport already four people came to me so it’s crazy.”

Liverpool FC finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to narrowly miss out on the top-flight title.

The Reds have finished in second place on four occasions in the Premier League back in 2002, 2009, 2014 and 2018.

Klopp’s Champions League triumph was his first major trophy as Liverpool FC boss.
