Jurgen Klopp is keen on bringing in a positive attitude to LiverpoolReuters

Newly-appointed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has set his sights on doing what no other manager in recent times has been able to -- bring the English Premier League title to Anfield.

The much-revered German manager in his first press conference with the Reds this afternoon spoke of his plans with the Premier League giants, and he believes that a major trophy is on the way to the club in the next four years.

"It is surreal. But I have to accept this," Klopp said in the presser, seeeing all the glaring media attention. "I don't care about things like this. I am a normal football manager and I want to work with the team and be on the pitch.

"When I left Dortmund, I felt it was not so important what people think when you come in but what they feel when you leave.

"I ask, please give us time. If you are patient and are prepared to work, in a special Liverpool way we can be successful. If I am sitting here in four years, we will win one title in this time."

The Reds last won a trophy in 2012 -- the League Cup. However, they have been unable to lift the English league title after the 1989-90 season.

And Klopp, who has landed Borussia Dortmund two back-to-back Bundesliga titles as well as took them to the finals of the UEFA Champions League between 2008 and 2015, feels it is not "so difficult" to land a trophy in Anfield soon.

"It [To join Liverpool as the manager] is the biggest honour I can imagine," the 48-year-old said.

"It is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have an opportunity to try and help in a situation that is not so difficult as some of the people in this room feel. It is a good moment to come here. I am proud.

"The intensity of the football and how the people live football in Liverpool. It is not a normal club. It is a special club."

Klopp termed himself as the "Normal One" and he has urged the Reds to transform from being "doubters to believers".

"The Premier League is one of the most difficult leagues in the world. Only one can be the champion but five, six or seven clubs could be. We have to develop," Klopp said.

"This is a good moment. It is not important who is the winner of the Premier League, only that we play our own game and feel the confidence and trust of the people. We have to change from doubters to believers.

"We did in Dortmund what we had to do -- to improve and work to a common idea of play. It is the same idea here. I am not here only because LFC was calling, I believe in the potential of this team," the German emphasised.

Liverpool, for the first time under Jurgen Klopp, face Tottenham in a Premier League away game on 17 October.
