The replies when Jurgen Klopp was announced as Liverpool manager in 2015

Fans weren't all in favour of Klopp as Liverpool manager back in 2015...

So Liverpool have finally secured the Premier League trophy.

We all knew the Reds would be champions at some point this season, but they mathematically sealed their dominance last night after Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Manchester City.

It's the first time in 30 years that Liverpool have reigned supreme in English football and it means Jurgen Klopp has fulfilled the promise he made upon joining the Merseyside outfit nearly five years ago.

At his first press conference in late 2015, the German manager said: "Last night we signed the contract and this morning I wake and I'm manager of Liverpool FC.

"Please give us time to do the work but when I sit here in four years I think we may have one title.

"If not maybe [I'll win] the next one in Switzerland!"

After just less than four years, he secured the club's sixth Champions League trophy and a year later, he's brought an end to a league title drought that many Liverpool fans thought would never end.

But around the time of that very press conference, the Reds faithful were not exactly sold on the idea of Klopp as manager.

The replies to Sky Sports' tweet announcing the German's arrival look absolutely ridiculous in the present day and we've provided some of the best below.

The replies...

Tweet 1 Tweet 2 Tweet 3 Tweet 4 Tweet 5

From Klopp being worse than Brendan Rodgers to being referred to as 'Flop', some of the replies are absolute comedy gold.

Of course, there are numerous tweets praising the hiring of Klopp and it begs the question; why weren't all of them like that?

The guy had turned Dortmund into a European powerhouse prior to his arrival at Anfield and five years later, he's done the same - and more - with Liverpool.

Attention will now switch to how Klopp can further improve the Reds in the years to come.

Can he build a dynasty similar to that of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United? Probably not, but you wouldn't bet against the German securing multiple Premier League titles during his time in England.
