New Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained why he joined the Anfield-based club, after being unveiled by the Reds on Thursday evening.
Klopp signed a three-year deal with Liverpool and the club have since confirmed that his two assistants from his time at Borussia Dortmund, Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz, have also been appointed.
In his first interview as the Reds' boss, Klopp told the club's official website why he joined and which playing philosophy he wants to implement.
"Firstly, I would like to offer thanks to the ownership of Liverpool Football Club for showing faith in me and my staff and presenting us with this wonderful opportunity," he said.
"They have presented to me a very clear vision and I share their ambitions and model of work.
"I am very excited by the challenge we face and eager to start the job and begin implementing our ideas and ways of working with this team. This is a talented group of players and there is still much to compete for this season.
"Winning is important, but so is how you win and how you play the game. I believe in a playing philosophy that is very emotional, very fast and very strong. My teams must play at full throttle and take it to the limit every single game.
"It is important to have a playing philosophy that reflects your own mentality, reflects the club and gives you a clear direction to follow. Tactical, of course, but tactical with a big heart.
"Liverpool has extraordinary supporters and Anfield is a world-renowned home, with an incredible atmosphere. I want to build a great relationship with these supporters and give them memories to cherish. I hope we can feed off each other's energy and that we take this journey together."
