What are the lyrics to the Klopp chant ‘I’m so glad’?

The song is sung to the tune of the famous Beatles track, ‘I Feel Fine’ and goes:

I'm so glad that Jurgen is a Red.
I'm so glad he delivered what he said.
Jurgen said to me, you know. We'll win the Premier League, you know. He said so.
I'm in love with him and I feel fine.

What does the 'I'm so glad' chant mean?

There is no deep meaning to the 'I'm so glad' Klopp chant that has been reeled out by Liverpool's fan base.

Reds followers are merely looking to express their appreciation for the work overseen by one of world’s football’s finest managers.

Klopp did state, in his very first press conference, that he had the tools at his disposal to deliver tangible success while in charge at Anfield, saying: “If we sit here in four years I think we win a title, I’m pretty sure.”

He delivered on that promise, with Champions League, Premier League and Carabao Cup crowns added to the well-stocked trophy cabinet at Anfield.

Klopp announced he was leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2023-24 season and he asked Reds supporters not to make every game about him by singing the song. That request echoed an earlier plea from Klopp not to sing the song too early in a game.

However, such is the admiration for the German coach among the Anfield faithful that they will no doubt feel compelled to serenade Klopp with every opportunity.

Regardless of who replaces Klopp as Liverpool manager, his standing among the fans means that his song will continue to be sung long after his departure.
