Jordan Rossiter admits he needs to prove himself worthy of first-team status all over again following Jürgen Klopp's appointment as Liverpool manager.

The teenage midfielder has taken huge strides toward establishing himself in the senior squad this term, starting both Europa League group games thus far and making his Barclays Premier League debut from the bench during the 0-0 draw with Arsenal back in August.

However, Klopp's arrival means the 18-year-old now has to impress his qualities upon a new boss to ensure further opportunities come his way.

But he takes confidence from the German's record of blooding young players, and believes his trophy-winning pedigree also bodes well for the future at Anfield.

"He's managed in the Champions League, he's won stuff with Dortmund, and I'm really looking forward to [working with] him. It's going to be a good experience," Rossiter told

"I thought Brendan Rodgers was brilliant for me, he gave me my chance, over the last couple of years he put me at Melwood. 

"I'm sure Jürgen Klopp's going to be the same, I know he's given young players a chance and it only bodes well for all the lads at the Academy and the young lads in the first team."

Rossiter was away on international duty with England U19s when the news broke of Klopp's arrival earlier this month.

And, though he enjoyed representing his country, Rossiter says he couldn't wait to get back and start training under the new coach.

"Even though I was on international duty, I did want to get home and get cracking on with Liverpool again to be honest," he added. 

"When you're away you just try to focus and don't really speak to anybody at the Academy or the first team but I'm just looking forward to getting in and cracking on.

"I just know I need to go in and try to prove to him in training that I can improve, become a better player, and hopefully he likes me."
