It is clear Jurgen Klopp's legacy is going to hang over Liverpool for some considerable time.

A fair percentage of questions put to Arne Slot at today's training ground unveiling were linked to his illustrious predecessor in some way.

Slot handled them all calmly.

He thinks it is a bonus he is coming into a club that has had someone who has done so well, for such a long time, because it means they have a good team.

Slot also feels Liverpool have done the right thing in appointing someone whose style of play is similar to Klopp's.

Obviously we will only know for certain if he can step up to the mark when the games start - but as first appearances go this was a good one.

Slot doesn't appear overawed by the challenge he faces.
