Klopp claimed his first trophy with the English giant's thanks to a 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid on Saturday. His fellow German, Klinsmann, feels the former Borussia Dortmund coach fits perfectly at Anfield.

"He's just a person you want to wish him well. He puts so much energy in there, so much effort and hard work in there, on all sides of the game," he told the Mirror.

Deserves

"The way he won over the people in Liverpool and the way he became one of them, it just deserves then, the end result, meaning now this very special title.

"Klopp fits Liverpool so perfectly because his background is very humble, his background it's blue collar, hardworking, they live and die for their club and so, his whole life basically was always very, very closely connected to the people, to the neighborhoods."

The Champions League success was rewarded for a fine season by Liverpool, who claimed 97 points but finished second to Manchester City in the Premier League.
