Is winning the Premier League Jurgen Klopp's most significant achievement as Liverpool manager?

Is winning the Premier League Jurgen Klopp's most significant achievement as Liverpool manager?

Winning the Premier League in the 2019/2020 season is undoubtedly one of Jürgen Klopp's most significant achievements as Liverpool manager, but it is part of a broader narrative of success and transformation under his guidance.

Since taking over in October 2015, Klopp has not only ended Liverpool's 30-year league title drought but has also led the club to numerous other successes and established Liverpool as a dominant force in English and European football.

To fully appreciate Klopp's impact, it's important to consider his other key achievements with Liverpool:

1. UEFA Champions League Victory (2018/2019)

Klopp guided Liverpool to their sixth Champions League title in 2019, beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final.

This triumph was especially significant as it marked Liverpool's return to the pinnacle of European football after 14 years.

The road to the final included a memorable semi-final comeback against Barcelona, overturning a 3-0 first-leg deficit to win 4-0 at Anfield in the second leg.

2. UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup (2019)

Following their Champions League victory, Liverpool went on to win the UEFA Super Cup, beating Chelsea on penalties.

They also claimed their first-ever FIFA Club World Cup title in 2019, defeating Flamengo in the final.

These victories underscored Liverpool's status as the best club team in the world.

3. Premier League Title (2019/2020)

The Premier League triumph was a monumental achievement, given the historical context and the manner in which it was achieved. Liverpool amassed 99 points, winning the title with seven games to spare, and demonstrated a level of dominance rarely seen in the league.

Given the wait for the title and the incredible manner in which it was delivered (don't forget Liverpool finished second on 97 points the season before), there is no denying winning the Premier League is Jurgen Klopp's most significant achievement as Liverpool manager.

That said, supporters aren't particularly picky about trophies and are just grateful the German got Liverpool back to fighting for the biggest titles every season.

4. Carabao Cup and FA Cup (2021/22)

Although Liverpool came within touching distance of an historic quadruple in 2022, they ultimately only won the domestic cups that season, beating Chelsea in two Wembley finals.

Manchester City won the Premier League title on the final day of the season and Real Madrid delivered the killer blow by beating them in the Champions League final two weeks later.

Yet, the 2021/22 will still be remembered for the incredible journey Klopp took us on.

5. Revitalising the Club

Beyond trophies, Klopp's impact includes revitalising Liverpool as a club, rebuilding the team into one of the most exciting sides in football, and re-establishing Anfield as a fortress.

His philosophy, charisma, and leadership have been instrumental in creating a winning culture and a strong connection with the fans.

He set out to transform supporters from doubters into believers and it's safe to say he succeeded.

6. Consistent Premier League Contenders

Under Klopp, Liverpool has consistently challenged for the Premier League title, finishing as runners-up in the 2018/2019 season with 97 points, a tally that would have won the title in almost any other season.

His tenure has seen Liverpool consistently finish in the top four, securing Champions League football and the title in 2019.

While the Premier League title is a crowning achievement, Klopp's legacy at Liverpool is multifaceted, encompassing not just the trophies won but also the style of play he has instilled, the atmosphere he has fostered at Anfield, and the global resurgence of the club's brand.

Each achievement contributes to Klopp's significant and lasting impact on Liverpool Football Club.
