Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool in October 2015 to replace the dismissed Brendan Rodgers. At that time, this was still a club in turmoil. Klopp inherited an unappreciated squad but gradually adopted his unique philosophy.
Gradually, the German coach helped Liverpool improve and win the hearts of the fans. Five years on, The Kop under Klopp won the Champions League and the latest the Premier League, bringing together a world-class squad.
Liverpool set the record for winning the highest league title in England at the earliest. They were crowned early before 7 rounds when Man City was 2nd to 23 points after 31 rounds.
Pep Guardiola won with City four more titles than Klopp in less than a year. But the Spaniard has created more shopping opportunities in the past.
Hamann judged Klopp’s achievements to be incomparable by the massive reconstruction he had at Liverpool. Now the 53-year-old is a leading figure in his job.
Hamann told The Mirror: “Right now, Klopp has to be recognized as the best coach in football. Pep Guardiola is a special coach, but when he came to City he took over a club that won the titles. ”
“Of course, what Guardiola has done at Man City in the last three seasons has to be acknowledged, but Klopp has taken over a club that has only won one League Cup in 10 years. He has to build a team almost from scratch. “
“That is why Klopp’s achievement is incomparable. He was the first Liverpool manager to win the Premier League and the first coach to win it. When you compare the squad he inherited, he almost completely changed with a net spending of about £ 50 million. ”
“When you look at the resources that other coaches already have, it makes Klopp’s achievement even more spectacular. He has incredible strikers with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino. ”
“He developed the best two full-backs in the world, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Buying Virgil Van Dijk is a bargain even at £ 75 million because Liverpool’s problems over the past 30 years are due to defensive loopholes. ”
“A great team has to avoid two things. The first is complacency because even when leading with 25 points more than the rest, it never feels easy. The second is the fighting spirit and the current Liverpool never gives up. ”
“It all comes from the work of Klopp. He built a solidarity team that never gave up. ”
