Jurgen Klopp – football mastermind who restored Liverpool

BY Charlotte Henry   /  27 June 2020

Just over a year ago, I stood in the Wanda Metropolitano as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side celebrated winning the Champions League. Weeks earlier, they had had to endure Manchester City pipping them to the post in the Premier League, despite having accumulated a points total that would have seen them win it in almost any other season. As homegrown fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold danced in front of his delighted fans and captain Jordan Henderson lifted the big-earred trophy that scorching-hot night Madrid, even I, as a fan of the defeated opponents, Tottenham, sensed it was the beginning of something for Klopp and Liverpool, not the peak they’d been striving to reach.
