The German tactician has taken the club from Europa League participants to Premier League and European champions during that time, completely transforming the squad into a world-class outfit in the process.
Klopp has managed to average a points-per-game average of 2.04 from 270 matches in charge, the best of his career (as per TransferMarkt), and captured the club’s first league title in 30 years, just as he promised during his first press conference.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that he possesses the same aura as ex-Reds boss Bill Shankly, arguably the greatest manager that ever sat in the Anfield dugout.
Is Jurgen Klopp a Liverpool legend on the level of Paisley & Shankly?
Understandably, waves of supporters came far and wide as they flocked to the club’s official Twitter account, who commemorated the significant day.
Liverpool fans hail Klopp
