Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been seen sharing a warm embrace with exciting new signing Naby Keita.
In a touching moment between manager and player, Klopp looked thrilled to meet his new signing on the stairs and greeted him with joy, as seen in a video posted to Liverpool FC’s official Twitter page.
Fans reacted well on Twitter, with many excited to see their new player interacting with the manager, with some even seeing Klopp as a father-figure.
Klopp has every right to be happy to see his new signing – the player was in fine form for RB Leipzig last season, getting six goals and five assists from 27 league games and helping his team finish sixth in the German Bundesliga.
Although the transfer was agreed last summer, Keita has only recently signed in the past week from RB Leipzig for around £48m, and will wear the number eight shirt previously worn by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
The Guinean international will join recent signing Fabinho in Liverpool’s new-look midfield, in a season where Klopp will be hoping to finish in the top four and perhaps even attempt to win the Premier League title.
