Klopp promised to turn supporters from “doubters into believers” when he joined a club who, at that point, had not been champions of England since 1990, and had gone three years without a trophy of any kind.

He guided them to a sixth European Cup success in 2018-19 but arguably his biggest achievement to date was in 2020, when he ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a 19th league title.

Klopp’s move to a high-pressing style has been a key part of Liverpool’s success. Under him, they posted 97 points to finish second in the Premier League to Manchester City in 2018-19 before reaching 99 a year later to lift the title.
