Jurgen Klopp’s strides at Liverpool
On October 8, 2015, Jurgen Klopp signed a three-year contract with Liverpool replacing Brendan Rodgers at the club.
His first match was against Tottenham on October 17, 2015. The game ended in a 0-0 draw.
Klopp secured his first win as Liverpool’s manager over Bournemouth, proceeding into the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup. His first Premier League win game against Chelsea.
In his first season in charge of the club, Jurgen Klopp took Liverpool from a Europa League team to a Champions League team, beating Manchester United 3-0 on the last day of the Premier League to finish in the top four.
The following season, Liverpool also made it to the top four again, qualifying for the Champions League on two successful occasions under their new manager.
The 2018-2019 Premier League season was Liverpool’s best start to the season. The former Borussia Dortmund manager oversaw six straight Premier League wins for the Reds.
Despite losing the Premier League title that season to Manchester City, the club finished strong with a record 97 points and remained unbeaten in their home matches.
Jurgen Klopp went on to win Liverpool’s sixth European Cup by winning the Champions League at the Metropolitano Stadium in the 2018/19 season. En route to the final, Liverpool produced one of the most stunning comebacks in Champions League history.
After losing 3-0 at Camp Nou to Barcelona, Jurgen Klopp overturned the result, winning 4-0 at Anfield with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino missing the game due to injury.
In the 2019/20 Premier League season, Klopp led Liverpool to his first Premier title as Liverpool manager after winning the Champions League the previous year.
The former Mainz coach narrowly lost the Premier League title to Manchester City last season after trailing the champions till the final day of the season.
Since taking over as Liverpool’s manager, the Reds have not failed to qualify for the Champions League.
He has won the FA Cup, EFL Cup, Super Cup, Community Shield, FIFA Club World Cup, Europa League, Champions League, and the Premier League with Liverpool.
The call to sack Klopp and replace him with Tuchel
According to reports, Liverpool have spent over a billion pounds throughout his seven years with the club, and there are discontents among fans, who believe Klopp is not doing enough to justify the huge funds sank into the club.
Some fans have called for Tuchel to be appointed a new manager to succeed Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
Thomas Tuchel is a first-class coach that has managed major teams in Europe and won several trophies.
Tuchel has managed PSG, winning the French Ligue 1, Coup de La Ligue, and Trophes Des Champions.
Tuchel took PSG to the Champions League finals in the 2019/20 football season but lost to Bayern Munich.
In his short stint with Chelsea as manager, he has won the Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, and UEFA Super Cup.
Thomas Tuchel can comfortably step into the shoes of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
However, calls to sack the Liverpool manager is misplaced. Klopp may have a difficult time at Liverpool, but it is not enough to rule him off.
His achievements with the club speak volumes. Liverpool have spent heavily since Jurgen took over as manager, but the team has not slipped into the top 10 highest-spending clubs in the last decade.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester City, PSG, Juventus, and other top European clubs lead the list of highest spenders in the last decade.
Liverpool are not doing worse compared to these clubs under Jurgen Klopp. Two defeats, four draws and two wins in the Premier League is not enough reason to write off the German tactician.
