 UCL & EPL win… Klopp’s best moments as Liverpool coach

The announcement by Jurgen Klopp that he will be leaving his “fairytale” position as manager of Liverpool at the end of the current campaign will mark the conclusion of another fruitful chapter in the club’s history.

After Klopp took over at Anfield in October 2015, he immediately began to turn the club’s fortunes, making his team a consistent title contender. In 2018–19, the team won the Champions League, and the following year, the Reds won their first Premier League title in thirty years, along with a slew of other accolades. Klopp has won six trophies in his eight and a half years at Liverpool.

Easily considered one of the best managers Liverpool has ever had, here is a look back at some of Klopp’s most iconic moments.

Champions league triumph 

Liverpool made it back to the Champions League final the following year after overcoming Barcelona in the semifinals with an amazing four-goal comeback. The previous year, Liverpool had reached the final but lost to Real Madrid.

With that comeback against Barcelona momentum, Klopp’s team easily defeated Tottenham in Madrid, beating their Premier League rivals 2-0 thanks to goals from Divock Origi and Mohamed Salah, who scored on each half of the game.

Winning the first-ever English Premier League glory in the history of the team

For Liverpool supporters, the Premier League title is possibly the most important one. After multiple unsuccessful attempts, thirty years of waiting for a league title finally ended in 2020.

Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic prevented any supporters from attending the game to celebrate the win, which was boosted when City, the team’s closest rival, lost to Chelsea. Of the 38 games they played that season, Klopp’s team won 32.

Liverpool’s incredible comeback against Barcelona in the champions league semifinals

In 2019, Klopp’s team stunned Barcelona at Anfield, beating all odds to earn a trip to the Champions League final. They accomplished the unimaginable, and it may have been one of the biggest comebacks in the history of the competition.

Liverpool had little chance of making it to the Champions League final after losing the first leg 3-0 at Camp Nou. But the Reds turned things around, defeating Barcelona 4-0 in front of their home crowd at Anfield to advance to the championship game for the second straight year.

Destruction of Manchester United 7-0

Their 7-0 crushing of rivals Manchester United in the 22–23 season has to rank among the Klopp’s most memorable performances as Liverpool manager. With goals from Salah, Gakpo, Firmino, and Núñez, the Reds won the derby at Anfield, recording their largest-ever victory in the match’s history.

In addition, Mohamed Salah surpassed Robbie Fowler to become the club’s all-time Premier League goalscorer with 129 goals.

First FA Cup wins in sixteen years, in 2022

After a goalless draw at Wembley, the Reds defeated Chelsea in a thrilling penalty shootout to reclaim the trophy for the first time in sixteen years.

With Kostas Tsimikas scoring the winning penalty kick and Alisson Becker stopping Mason Mount’s shot, Klopp’s team defeated Chelsea 6–5 on penalties. Previous FA Cup victories for the Reds came in 1965, 1974, 1986, 1989, 1992, 2001, and 2006.
