Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp celebrates his 50th birthday today – and we’ve taken a look back at some of his nuggets of wisdom from down the years.
While Klopp has earned a reputation as one of the best coaches in European football, he has also attracted plenty of admirers thanks to his jovial personality and funny demeanour.
His Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool teams have always been entertaining to watch, and the German has been just as amusing to observe on the sidelines and off the pitch.
After winning the Bundesliga twice, plus the German Cup, at Dortmund, Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers on Merseyside in 2015 and immediately led the Reds to the League Cup and Europa League finals – though Liverpool were ultimately beaten on both occasions.
The Reds started last season in excellent form, playing some thrilling attacking football, before faltering in the New Year, but Klopp still managed to guide the team back into the top four and next season’s Champions League.
Football would be a poorer sport with managers like Klopp, so here’s to you, Jurgen.
