Liverpool Boss: I am so lucky

Jurgen Klopp says he his happy to be Liverpool’s manager, as the Reds unveiled their new £115m structure last month that has taken Anfield’s capacity to 54,000.
Liverpool had to play their first three league games away from home in order to finish building, thereby dropping points.
But having moved into their new and improved home they are yet to lose a match.
Liverpool appear to be making their home a formidable ground once more, having thumped the likes of Leicester and Hull, including a drab goalless draw with Manchester United on Monday night.

And Klopp has thrown light on his view and how the additional 8500 seats have improved the club.

“It’s great, it’s great – it’s not easy to describe because we all loved the old Anfield,” Klopp said.
“When I first came here for the friendly with Borussia Dortmund, I don’t think they’d already started to do the work on the new Main Stand, but it already was a really nice and historical stadium.
“Then, being here in the moment when the new stand is opened, as I’ve said a few times, I am really lucky b******. I felt like this. It was really good.
“It’s not easy to describe because we all loved the old Anfield if you want,” he said.
“When I first came here, I don’t think they had already started work with the new stand.
“Being here in the moment when the new stand is open, I have said a few times, obviously, I am a real lucky b******. I couldn’t imagine how good it will be.

“The atmosphere is better than before. It depends a little bit on our performance but we are quite confident we can have a few nice atmospheres here over the next few years.
“For me and for the players, it is a big honour working for this club, and it is a big pleasure playing in this stadium where all these fantastic guys have celebrated their performances and games.”

Liverpool play hosts to West Brom at Anfield on Saturday and will be hoping to continue their good run at home.
