Berlin - Liverpool's new manager Jurgen Klopp says he has no intention of poaching players from his former club Borussia Dortmund for the Reds.

"That is in no way my approach," he told newspaper Bild in an interview published Monday.

The 48-year-old has a contract to manage the Merseyside giants until June 2018 and will take charge of his first Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Asked if he had already secured commitments in funding for the winter transfer window, Klopp said that was a subject "that does not interest me at all".

"We are now in October and I still don't know how many games there are until winter. But there are a few, and we will first look at our own people," said Klopp, who started his first training with his new club Monday.

The former Borussia Dortmund head coach was appointed on Thursday following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked after three and a half years at Liverpool.
