Liverpool appoint Klopp

Jurgen Klopp faced the media for the first time since becoming Liverpool manager and declared himself “the normal one”.

A highly-anticipated introduction did not disappoint as Klopp vowed to turn “the doubters to believers”, said he would have “the first and last word” on transfers and even predicted he would deliver a Premier League title within four years.

And the new manager – understood to have signed a three-year deal – raised a chuckle when he was asked for a soundbite similar to Jose Mourinho’s famous ‘special one’ comment when he joined Chelsea in 2004.
