Fans produced flags and banners for former Borussia Dortmund manager Klopp and chanted their support for him throughout.
He said in a news conference: "It was a warm welcome. It was one of the best moments for me, and it is important for all of us because people don't think it is better I stay outside the stadium.
"When you come for the first time in a new house, normally you have a present. I am not quite satisfied with my present tonight, but it was only the first time and I will come again."
Emre Can scored Liverpool's goal and, after being played in defence by Klopp's predecessor Brendan Rodgers, has been restored to midfield by his fellow German Klopp.
The manager said Can was likely to stay there, adding: "I think he is a midfield player but he can play different positions.
"I know him for some years and he is a midfield player but he played for the German national team at full-back. Most of the time in his youth he played in midfield."
