John Arne Riise: Why Jurgen Klopp is the right man for Liverpool


Former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise says new boss Jurgen Klopp has brought belief back to the club.

The German took over from Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irishman was sacked on October 4.

Klopp signed a three-year deal with the Reds worth £15m.

"Jurgen Klopp has lifted the Kop, now the belief is back," Riise told Sky Sports.

"I'm very excited and I think he's the right man to change things around. His press conference and interviews were amazing. It gave me goosebumps watching how he spoke.

"If his actions and the performances replicate the way he spoke in the press conference then things are looking very good.

"Anfield needs to be a place where people fear coming to play. When I played at Liverpool, opposition teams were afraid to come there because of the fans and the way the team played.

"Klopp said he wants his team to go at 100 per cent from the start for the full 90 minutes and I think the players will need to be fit, strong and ready to to dig deep.

"They couldn't have got a better manager than Jurgen Klopp. The whole club, the fans and the players have been given a real boost and I think they will fight for him but he needs to be given time."
