Jurgen Klopp has taken charge of his first Liverpool training session since being appointed as manager at the Anfield club last week.

The 48-year-old German arrived at the Reds' Melwood training base on Monday morning to begin with with his new players.

On Saturday he watched Liverpool's Under-18's taking on their Stoke counterparts, but he has since started working with the senior players.

The double-Bundesliga winning coach will be working with those that aren't currently away on international duty with their countries.

This means he will be putting the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Lucas Leiva and Kolo Toure through their paces.

He is also expected to spend time with club captain Jordan Henderson, who is currently sidelined through injury.

Klopp's first game in charge will be against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's early kick-off at White Hart Lane.

On Friday he was announced as successor to Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked following the 1-1 draw against Everton in Liverpool's last game.

Meanwhile, Klopp has no plans to poach any of his former players from Borussia Dortmund.

And he insists he is not interested in what money is available when the January transfer window opens.

The German has reiterated his desire to work with the squad he has inherited from Rodgers.

Unsurprisingly he has been linked with many of the stars who were part of his success at Dortmund but played down the chances of making moves for the likes of Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus.

"I'm not interested in that," he added. "It's already October and I don't even know how many matches there are until winter.

"But there are a few and so we'll be looking at our own players first."

Klopp has also cautioned against expecting any noticeable dramatic improvement in his first match in charge agains Spurs.

"I have no idea why the hype is so big. Lots of German coaches have been successful but not many come here. This is a big challenge for me and my coaching team.

"Liverpool have had a period without success and changed managers a lot. Now the hope is for miracles but progress takes time."
