Shortly after 8am this morning, a couple of hours before the German coach’s opening press conference as Liverpool boss, Klopp delivered a 12-second message to the fans.
“A message to those Liverpool supporters? We have to change, from doubter to believer. Now!” (Scroll down to see Klopp's first video message).

Klopp brings the feel-good factor back to Liverpool
Klopp has a big job on his hands at Anfield, following Liverpool’s disappointing start to the season. However, his arrival has already given everyone associated with the Merseyside outfit - the players, staff and particularly the supporters - a huge lift.
The 48-year-old oozes charisma, but must now prove that he possesses the substance to back up the style.
He demonstrated during his seven-year spell with Borussia Dortmund that he’s an intelligent and innovative coach. Winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles and leading BVB to the 2013 Champions League final was a hugely impressive achievement.
But will he have a similar impact at Anfield?
Of course, it will take time for Klopp to truly make his presence felt at Liverpool, but the feel-good factor has undoubtedly returned to Anfield for the first time since the end of the ill-fated 2013-14 campaign.
