Jürgen Klopp is a German manager who currently manages the EPL giants Liverpool. He has previously managed the German teams, Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05, his childhood club. He has the distinction of being the longest-serving managers in the history of the both the clubs he had previously managed.
At Borussia Dortmund, he disrupted the monopoly of the Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich in the German domestic leagues and cups. Under him, the club managed to win two consecutive Bundesliga titles, a DFB-Pokal Cup and a couple of DFL-Supercup titles. He also managed to push Der BVB to a Champions League final. In April 2015, he decided to take a sabbatical.
While he was cut away from the world of football, Liverpool was facing a torrid time under Brendan Rogers in the 2015-2016 season. Klopp replaced Brendan Rogers in October 2015. With his arrival, he brought about a new lease of life and flair to Liverpool. He restored the faith of the fans in a team which last won a title back in 2006. While he managed to secure the 8th position in the Premier League standings, it was the success of Liverpool in the Europa League which caught everyone’s eye. Though they lost to two-time defending champions Sevilla in the final, they were the team to beat throughout the tourney. A come-from-behind victory against Borussia Dortmund in the quarters drew the attention of the whole world and made Klopp a crowd-favorite.
In his first season as the Liverpool manager, he would be aiming to restore Liverpool as one of the top 4 teams in the Premier League and to deliver a title for the title-deprived yet unflinchingly faithful fans.
