  • The definitive insight into the man behind Liverpool’s Champions League 2019 victory

    Jürgen Klopp was confirmed as manager of Liverpool FC in October 2015 to a rapturous reception. His super-sized personality and all-or-nothing style of football and management made him the perfect choice to pump up the volume at Anfield and lift Liverpool out of a slump.

    The appointment sparked hysteria in the city with fans and club officials delighted to get the coach they’d long admired from afar and eager to see the impact he would have on the club and the Premier League.

    Klopp is the manager to turn players into winners. He’s authentic, approachable and funny, charming media and fans alike. He’s also merciless and exceptionally driven, his quick temper bubbling away barely under the surface. Klopp’s pitch-side passion has enthralled fans, culminating in 2019’s triumphant Champions League win.
