Jurgen Klopp will be given every resource to help deliver success at Liverpool, according to the club’s new chief executive Peter Moore.

Moore began his new job on Thursday, succeeding Ian Ayre who left Anfield in February after spending six years as Liverpool’s CEO.

Liverpool boss Klopp has wasted no time in further shaping his squad in his own image after finalising a deal to sign Chelsea’s highly-rated England U20 international striker Dominic Solanke.

Moore has promised that funds will be made available to allow Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards to further strengthen and build on last season’s fourth-place finish in the Premier League.

“My job is to provide him [Klopp] through FSG [Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group] with the resources he and Michael need to be successful,” Moore told Sky Sports News HQ.

“It’s also to take a little bit of pressure off him. During the period where my predecessor [Ayre] left there was a gap before I was starting and Jurgen had become the face of the club both on and off the pitch

“He stated that he was looking forward to me coming to take that pressure off. It’s critical that we give him every opportunity to focus purely on what is on the pitch.

“But we’re in together as one team here. Jurgen, Michael and myself all report into FSG.

“My role as the CEO is to continue to think how I can make the team successful. It’s a dream job, but it’s a job, let’s be very clear – there’s work to do here.”
