Jurgen Klopp’s nearly nine-year tenure as Liverpool manager concluded on Sunday, marked by a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Klopp departs with a legacy of transformed playing style, record-breaking achievements, and a deep connection with the club and city.

Klopp’s Trophy Haul

Klopp’s reign delivered a staggering eight trophies, including the elusive Premier League title that had eluded Liverpool for 30 years. 

Here’s a closer look at his silverware:

  • Premier League (2019-20): Ending the club’s long wait for a top-flight English title with a record-breaking 99 points.
  • Champions League (2018-19): Clinching Liverpool’s sixth European Cup with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
  • FA Cup (2021-22): Completing a domestic cup double alongside the League Cup.
  • League Cup (2021-22 & 2023-24): Lifting the cup twice during his tenure.
  • Club World Cup (2019): Adding a world title to the trophy cabinet.
  • UEFA Super Cup (2019): Securing another piece of European silverware.

Klopp vs. Liverpool Legends

While Klopp’s trophy haul is impressive, how does it compare to Liverpool’s other legendary managers?

While Klopp may not have the sheer number of trophies as Bob Paisley, his impact on the club is undeniable. He boasts the highest win percentage of any Liverpool manager (60.9%) and achieved 900 goals for the club in the fewest games (440).

Beyond Trophies: A Legacy of Resilience

Klopp’s influence transcended trophies. He instilled a relentless attacking style and a never-say-die attitude, earning Liverpool the nickname “Mentality Monsters.” The Reds secured an incredible 18 Premier League-winning goals in stoppage time under his leadership and amassed the most points (144) from losing positions in Europe’s top five leagues during his tenure.

Klopp and the Community

Klopp’s impact extended beyond the pitch. He actively participated in community events, supported the Hillsborough families, and championed LGBTQ+ inclusion by urging fans to stop homophobic chants. His dedication to the city earned him the prestigious Freedom of the City status in 2022.

Klopp’s departure leaves a massive void at Anfield, but his legacy will undoubtedly inspire future generations of players and fans. He transformed Liverpool Football Club, etching his name not just in the club’s record books, but also in the hearts of its supporters. This legacy creates a monumental task for his successor, Arne Slot.
