Liverpool have officially appointed their Jurgen Klopp replacement, with Arne Slot set to take the reigns on June 1.

The appointment of the Feyenoord boss, who enjoyed a thoroughly successful spell at De Kuip, has caused quite the stir on social media.

A good stir though, as many Liverpool fans are notably delighted with the appointment of the Eredivisie and KNVB Cup-winning manager...

Even Jurgen Klopp hasn't been able to contain his excitement, giving Liverpool fans the gift of a wonderful new chant to usher in the new manager and a new era at Anfield...

And, judging by X, it's fair to say that the chant has already taken off...

Liverpool fans seemingly already have a loft opinion of their new boss too, with many taking to social media to hail Slot as 'the best bald manager in the Premier League'...

And even to set their 'quadruple' expectations heading into the 2024/25 campaign...

Opposition fans have been, as expected, much less receptive of Liverpool's appointment of Slot.

Having seen one of the best managers in Premier League history leave the Reds, many non-Liverpool fans were labelling the appointment of the Dutchman as the beginning of a new banter era.

Yeah, we agree, 'Looserpool' is so dumb that it's funny.

Plenty of X users have also been keen to point out the work that needs to be done at Anfield in order to make them title contenders next season.

The main task being discussed has been the need to get a tune out of Liverpool's frugal number nine Darwin Nunez.

The Uruguayan was dropped late in the season thanks to his struggles to hit a barn door, missing a whopping 27 big chances during the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.
