Back in October 2015 Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool coach, and the Reds were eighth and struggling in the Premier League.
In his presentation he labelled himself as ‘the normal one’ and knew that it wouldn’t be an easy task to bring Liverpool back to their glory days.
The first starting line-up he ever used consisted of Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Emre Can, Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, James Milner and Divock Origi.
With those men he ended that season eighth and two fourth place finishes followed in 2016/17 and 2017/18.
Liverpool were gradually improving and reached the Europa League final in 2016 and the Champions League final two years later, losing both to Sevilla and Real Madrid, respectively.
European success arrived in 2019 when Klopp led his men to the Champions League trophy after beating Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid.
A European Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup followed, but what was missing was the title Liverpool coveted most… the English Premier League.
After Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Thursday, Klopp’s men clinched the trophy.
“We want to create our own history,” Klopp promised after missing out on the title last season and that’s what he and his players managed to do a year later.
