JURGEN KLOPP HAS taken charge of his first training session as he settles into his role as the Liverpool manager.

The 48-year-old German led a group including nine first-team players at the club’s Melwood training ground on Monday afternoon as he begins preparations for the weekend’s trip to Tottenham.

The international break has allowed Klopp a gentle introduction to the club and life in Liverpool, both on and off the field.

He’s been using his spare time to go house-hunting with his family and it appears he’s been successful in his search for a new home.

Klopp was appointed Liverpool manager on Thursday, replacing Brendan Rodgers at the helm, and it now appears he’s going to be living in his predecessor’s apartment.

According to the Daily Mail, Klopp has been spotted at Sefton Park and has agreed to move into Rodgers’ luxury apartment worth £1.4 million – but he’ll only be renting for now at a cost of £4,000 per month.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager has already endeared himself to Liverpool fans after he was pictured chatting with supporters in the Old Blind School bar on Friday evening.
