On October 8 2015, Jurgen Klopp was ushered in as the new Liverpool manager and in the years since he has made history and forged a long-lasting legacy. Here is his reign in numbers.
It’s been nothing short of a dream for the Reds and Klopp, a match made in heaven and one which has restored the club back where it belongs at the top of club football.
The boss made Liverpool winners once more by securing the European Cup and made history when he oversaw the end of a 30-year wait for the league title, all the while transforming the careers of his players and singing off the same hymn sheet as the fans.
