Kenny Dalglish has advised Liverpool supporters to "fasten their seat belts" for life under new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

The 48-year-old German addressed the media on Friday morning for the first time since his appointment was confirmed.

He described himself as "the normal one" and said he was committed to "full throttle" football - a philosophy he built in seven successful years at Borussia Dortmund before leaving earlier this year.

Dalglish, the last manager to bring the league title to Anfield back in 1990 and a winner of six league titles and three European Cups with the Reds as a player, said: "I just heard Klopp's press conference and he sounds very, very impressive. I think the supporters will need to fasten their seat belts - I'm sure they will really enjoy him.

"He seems to be somebody who's not in love with himself, which the Liverpool supporters can relate to. I'm sure they will take him to their hearts. He's described himself as 'the normal one' and that will do them fine because they regard themselves as being pretty normal.

"I don't know him - I've only seen snippets on TV or radio but he came across very, very well this morning and I think that augurs well for everybody."

Klopp's reign begins with a difficult trip to Tottenham a week on Saturday, followed by home outings against Rubin Kazan and Southampton in the Europa League and Premier League respectively.

Dalglish added: "He's got off to a fantastic start but it's a really difficult run of games coming up and I'm sure, as he said this morning, he is going to work as hard as anybody else and if everybody works together it's not rocket science - (if) everybody works together you've got a much better chance of success."
