Who is Jurgen Klopp?


Jurgen Klopp is a German professional footballer and head coach of Liverpool Football Club in England, recognized for his achievements at Mainz 05. Hard work and hard work have helped Jurgen achieve remarkable results.

Jürgen Norbert Klopp was born on June 16, 1967 in Stuttgart, Germany. The boy’s father, Norbert Klopp, already has two daughters, but he wants a son. When Jürgen was born, his father was the happiest man in the world. Jürgen spent his childhood in Glatten. But he is still a fan of his hometown of Stuttgart. The boy’s favorite player is the central defender, the legendary Karl Heinz Foster. Klopp acknowledges that work attitudes are important to him.

Jurgen is recognized as a hereditary football player. In his youth, his father was a promising goalkeeper. Norbert even tried to join FC Kaiserslautern. No wonder men decided to achieve their ambitions with the help of children and make boys professional football players.

In winter, the young Jürgen skis, and in summer he plays tennis with his father. He devoted the remaining time to football. The father toughened his son on the field. He’s faster and smarter on football fields and pitches. This attitude allows the boy’s character to be exercised and further stimulates the child’s growth.

Jürgen admitted in an interview that his life was not as good as it seemed. His father is cruel. He told them that Jürgen saw only a red dot while skiing. Norbert didn’t care that his son was inexperienced, and he wanted Jürgen to be perfect in everything.

Jurgen Klopp profile and football Career

Jürgen started his career unusually. Klopp couldn’t make a living in the lower sectors, so the young man had to work odd jobs. Jurgen unloaded the truck at the rental store.

Jürgen signed his first professional contract at the age of 23. Krupp was noticed when he played against Mainz 05’s Rot-Weiss Frankfurt in the playoffs.

At that time, the Provincial Mainz Club 05 never played in the elite division. The main goal is to defend the Bundesliga 2 position so that players can earn a salary. Jürgen joined the club as a shooter, but in 1995 he finally became a defender. He is skilled and offensive, but his performance is not rough.

In the early 2000s, Klopp was considered one of Mainz’s 05 best players and stood out among other players. Jurgen started his management career at this club.

As a player, Jurgen received a diploma in sports science from the Goethe University in Frankfurt. He wrote a dissertation on walking. Later, Klopp obtained a professional coaching license at the University of Cologne and traveled 300 kilometers there.

Journalists and team members did not immediately see Jergen as a coach. At the press conference, some people even thought it was a joke. But no one in the team objected to the appointment of Klopp, although the move was quick.

Nonetheless, the first training with Klopp surprised Mainz 05 director Christian Heidel. According to him, he was ready to “put on his shoes and go to play”.

From 2005 to 2008, Klopp combined coaching with this work as expert commentator during the broadcast of sports events. Jürgen often works with the tactical committee to analyze the moments of the game and reveal the errors that led to dangerous attacks or goals.

The next team in his career was Dortmund, and that man hit the club at the right time. Fans remember when the club was on the verge of bankruptcy. But now, if Dortmund fails to reach the top three, it will be a disaster.

The leadership then decided that the new club would consist of young players. Jürgen’s resignation from Mainz 05 at that time was considered “a rising star.” When Klopp became the club’s coach, the club ranked 13th. Next season, Dortmund has finished sixth. In the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 seasons, the team won the Bundesliga championship.

In 2013, Jürgen received a red card for firing a judge. Videos of the coach yelling were immediately spread on the Internet.

Jürgen Klopp now

Now Jürgen Klopp continues his coaching career. According to recent news, Real Madrid is negotiating with Jurgen on the appointment of his head coach. The only obstacle may be England’s reluctance to terminate the contract with the coach.

Prior to the decisive match between Liverpool and Spartak, in December 2017, Jürgen attended a press conference with Pearl White. Many people are used to the unique style of coaches. Glasses, beards and behaviors have become Jürgen’s signature. But his yellow teeth were the subject of separate discussions and the reason for the ridicule. However, after going to the dentist, there are fewer reasons for joking.

In the spring of 2018, Jürgen commented on rumors about Bayern Munich’s interest. The coach said that under the terms of the contract, he could not leave the club before the deal ended. In addition, the current agreement with Liverpool will only terminate within 4 years.

Today, the German coach and Manchester United coach Mourinho have been fighting. They were considered the main competitors, but Jürgen’s team surpassed Jusé’s club.

In April 2018, the head coach acknowledged that responsibility was felt due to the club’s lack of major trophies. In the same month, assistant coach Zeljko Buvac temporarily suspended his job at Liverpool FC for personal reasons.

At the end of May, Liverpool coach told the turning point of the game against Real Madrid. Jurgen did not mention Karius and his mistakes. He mentioned that the goalkeeper knew everything.

Jürgen has not verified his account on the social networks Twitter and Instagram. He has posted many photos related to different events in his life.
