Manager History Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp

The German earned his status as one of the best in Europe after guiding former club Borussia Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga wins in 2011 and 2012 and Champions League finalists in 2013, before resigning in April 2015 to take a sabbatical.

It didn’t take much for the Reds to persuade Klopp to become manager. He had been an admirer of Liverpool Football Club for years and it had been one of his ambitions to one day manage the club.

His high-intensity style and affable nature have endeared him to players, fans and press alike, while he has still maintained a no-nonsense approach with players who step out of line, as Mamadou Sakho will testify.

It wasn’t long before Klopp started winning trophies with Liverpool. After being beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League final in 2018, the Reds went on to win the trophy in 2019, beating Tottenham in the final in Madrid. They followed that up with the Club World Cup later that year and a remarkable run in the league which saw them lift the Premier League trophy in 2020. European, World and English champions all at the same time!
