Borussia Dortmund sent this classy tweet to Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp

Published 2 Comments

Liverpool got their man yesterday after it was revealed Jurgen Klopp had signed a three-year contract to become their new manager.

The German had been out of work since leaving Borussia Dortmund in the summer, following seven highly successful years at the Westfalenstadion.

Having taken BVB from bottom-half struggles to back-to-back Bundesliga champions, Klopp holds a legendary status with their fans.

Following the announcement that the 48-year-old would replace Brendan Rodgers, the German club were quick to take to Twitter and show their support for their former manager.

They tweeted: "We heard the news today, oh boy! All the best at The Kop, Jürgen Klopp! All the best at @LFC! #klopplfc."

The tweet was accompanied with an awesome picture of the Anfield club's new manager celebrating on the zebra crossing from The Beatles' famous Abbey Road album.

Liverpool responded, saying: "Danke, @BVB! You'll Never Walk Alone #KloppLFC."

Klopp is set to be officially unveiled at 10am this morning after the Merseyside club scheduled a press conference.

Champions League

The former Mainz manager's primary objective at the Reds will be to take them back to the Champions League this season.

Rodgers departed the club with Liverpool sitting tenth in the Premier League, but only three points off a top-four spot.

Klopp has the remainder of the international break to get acclimatised to his new surroundings, before his first game - a trip to fellow European hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur.

With fixtures at Chelsea and Manchester City in the not too distant future, the German manager will have to hit the ground running to ensure Liverpool's season does not evaporate into dust.
