The arrival of Jurgen Klopp has brought the same level of excitement to Liverpool as when the club secured the signing of Luis Suarez, according to former Reds player Jan Molby.
Writing for the Liverpool Echo, Molby, who featured in more than 200 games for the Merseyside outfit between 1984 and 1996, claims the capture of Klopp is a huge lift for all involved with the club.
In fact, Molby suggests that the enigmatic German is a 'special manager' and has insisted that the emotion involved with Liverpool has helped them secure the services of the former Borussia Dortmund man.

Molby stated: "If you're a Liverpool fan, he brings the feeling that the club can still get a special manager.
"It's that same sort of excitement that we had with Luis Suarez, that the club could still attract a special player.
"As much as the history of the football club can sometimes be a burden I also believe that in this instance it very much helped.
"There's a lot of emotion involved with Liverpool and I think that's what has drawn Klopp towards the club."
Let's be honest, Klopp really is the club's biggest addition since the arrival of Suarez. The revered coach has the credentials to completely change the dynamics at Anfield. Suarez did exactly that, of course, and turned Liverpool from pretenders to contenders in their pursuit of securing the Premier League title.
Back in 2014, the Uruguayan almost inspired the Reds to success, so Klopp will now be desperate to go one better. It will take time, however; Liverpool are by no means the finished article but are good enough to climb the table sooner rather than later.
A place in the top four is a realistic target, but the club's faithful must stay patient under the new regime. Klopp's longevity will only help the club become a force again.
