Former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has expressed his excitement with the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as the Red’s new manager.
The 48-year-old German, who spent impressive seven years in charge of Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund was officially named as Brendan Rodgers’ successor on Thursday after the Northern Irishman was sacked in the wake of a poor run of form in the Premier League this season.
The former Dortmund manager has won two back-to-back Bundesliga titles and a DFB-Pokal title during his time at the Westfalenstadion club.
Gerrard left the Anfield in the summer after spending 17 years with the Liverpool to join MLS giants LA Galaxy, took to Instagram to express his excitement at seeing the German head coach take over the reins at his boyhood club.
He posted: “Exciting times to be a red…best wishes Mr Klopp. YNWA”.
Klopp becomes the second German to manage in the premier league and the first to take in-charge Liverpool after penning a three-year contract with the Merseyside club.
