Klopp insists he has the energy to oversee the development of this new team.
"I know I said it but I also feel it, it is year one," Klopp said. "I don't want to manage the success from the past and not get there again. No, we have to. All big teams have to [rebuild] from time to time and we've had to do it now with the same old manager but my energy levels are not a problem at all. I loved the pre-season, I loved the start of the season and we have to keep going, that much is clear. That will never change.
"I know that I am getting older but when you see the 16-year-old boys in training you think 'OK, in two years they are 18 so there is a good chance I have them, without rushing them into the first team'. I had that with Mario Gotze (at Borussia Dortmund) years and years ago when you watched a game and you asked 'who is that?' Mario Gotze was 16 years old and I had no clue. 'When can we bring him?'
"The club has really good young players here and we have a situation where we don't need to put them in when it's too early for them. So you can see that Bobby Clark has made massive steps, are they in the first team? Probably not. Are they on loan? No, because we want them around and at the end of a career, no-one talks about the year when you were 18 or 19.
"If you were outstanding it can cause you more problems and if you're not in yet, you can feel like you didn't make it yet, so our job is to help the boys to deal with a massive advantage of time in the best possible way because they have all the time I have and obviously Vitor Matos and Pep Lijnders are the biggest advocates of all these boys. So they know absolutely everything about them and I see them from time to time and I can say it's good."
