Jurgen Klopp is a passionate manager. He has never been shy in expressing joy, excitement, anxiety and all possible emotions in the field.
From his epic fist-pumps to his hilarious rundowns on the sidelines, he’s done it all!
At Anfield, he’s known for the almost infinite number of hugs that his players and staff receive from him after every game, which only shows the respect he has for his players who work hard and give it all on the pitch for him.
So it isn’t a surprise that we saw all these emotions in what was arguably the best night of his career in Madrid when he guided Liverpool to the Champions League trophy.
He is no stranger to coming up short at the finals, having lost six cup finals he must’ve exactly known what Mauricio Pochettino was going through. Unlike the animated Klopp that fans normally see, he first went and calmly shook hands and exchanged a few words with Pochettino.
What was also commendable was the fact that he took time to console a heartbroken Jan Vertonghen picking him up and visibly congratulating him before celebrating the huge win with his players. Check out the moment in the video below –
Klopp came in to manage Liverpool in 2015 after successfully transforming Borussia Dortmund into the German powerhouse of a club in his seven-year stint at the club. He’s already replicated his legacy with the Reds as well!
He is an absolute fan favourite as he constantly interacts with them and sings the anthems along with them. He’s bought in a genuine euphoria about Liverpool and the way they play with his high pressing and attacking football.
Not just the fans but he’s also made the management pretty satisfied. When he started at Anfield, the squad value of Liverpool was €400 million, which is now valued at €1.1 billion. Brand Finance report values Liverpool at £1.02 billion – making them the sixth biggest club in the world (Give Me Sport).
