Jürgen Klopp has agreed a deal to become Liverpool’s next manager. Liverpool fans are, needless to say, rather excited by this news. And they’ve been waiting all week to shout about it—while dreading that somehow, some way, it might all go wrong at the last second.
With a deal agreed and Klopp now on his way to Anfield to sign the contract and meet the current coaches, upper management, and playing staff, Liverpool fans could put those doubts behind them and celebrate. Which, being the internet, mostly involved posting gifs and photoshops to Twitter.
We won’t lie. We enjoyed them. Because really, if as a Liverpool fan you can’t enjoy the club landing one of the best managers in all of football after 16 months of drudgery, why even bother being a fan? So. Join us on the Klopp Express. It’s getting a little crowded, but that’s half the fun.
