Liverpool fans have been reacting to details revealed about manager Jurgen Klopp’s first-ever team meeting at the club.
The Stuttgart-born coach arrived at Anfield in 2015 after Brendan Rodgers was sacked following a 1-1 draw against Everton in the Merseyside derby.
His message was simple and painted a clear picture as to where he wanted the team to be inside his four-year promise, to win a trophy in that time frame.
In his first big meeting with the #LFC squad in October 2015, Jürgen Klopp spelt out the word TEAM, assigning a short description to each letter as he explained what he wanted them to be.
They have become exactly that…https://t.co/N0eaHtpB07

He gets the club, team and fans one hundred per cent. There is still more to come under Klopp. We are so so lucky to have had this guy as our manager for the last four years.
