Jurgen Klopp seem to have beaten Carlo Ancelloti and others to the job at the Kop and could be named today. Besides the fact that his name seem to rhyme with The Kop, here are 7 reasons why the former Dortmund manager is perfect for the job.
He is genuinely funny
Wenger’s dry joke don’t cut it, Mourinho can be too caustic and most of the managers are just boring especially Brendan when he was Liverpool Manager despite speaking in his local language. If Klopp who is a delight to German journalist can learn English and we can understand him, we will be really happy.
He can celebrate for Africa
Yea! We have managers who celebrate quite expressively but none can be compared to this coach who has no business separating his emotions from the game. He is the celebrator-in chief and it doesn’t matter if he runs, breaks a bone, trips, and lose his lens while doing so. He just dazzles all the way.
He is passionate
Matt Hummel had this to say about his former 48 year old manager, ““He eats, lives, breathes and thinks football day after day and is a fantastic addition to any team. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for him in his next venture.” Klopp had being seen while at Germany walking home alone after a defeat just to reflect. He is a sore loser and achiever.
He is a fans man
Brendan Rogers was fired first by the fans then the board, Liverpool’s You Never Walk Alone will really show with this man who in Nigerian politician’s voice is a man for the people. His exploit in Borrusia Dortmund a resounding example giving the fans a reason to put in their emotions.
He can lure talents, groom and keep them.
Again most of Rogers Brendan problems started with the signature of some players who did woefully and Klopp has proven if he gets the resources he can do better. Albeit not forgetting that he left Dortmund after losing his top striker, Lewandoski and a string of defeats, Klopp is a fanastic manager and seem suited for Liverpool.
He is Champion League Manager
English teams have not fared quite convincingly in the Champions league in the last couple of years. Klopp, a one-time runner up and two-time Bundesliga champion has what it takes to at least persevere in the Champions league and could take Liverpool back to their glory days.
He is a fantastic Manager
Klopp eveidently helped transform the fortunes of players like Mario Gotze and Shinji Kagawa during his time with the German team, Borrusia Dortmund and Liverpool has a harvest of young potentials that can benefit from his magic touch and man-management.
