Don’t ever change Jurgen…

We absolutely love Jurgen Klopp for a multitude of reasons. Not only did he make Borussia Dortmund into one of the most tactically innovative teams in Europe but Klopp’s interviews and quotes are pure box-office gold.

It seems very likely that the German will be taking over the reins at Anfield and journalists will be delighted to see him join the Premier League.

With this in mind, we’ve decided to take a look at some of his best moments.

2) This interview after the Champions League final

This could be the greatest post-match quote that that you’ll ever read. Klopp’s immediate thoughts after losing to Bayern Munich in Wembley.

“Everything was great. We deserve to be in the final and we showed this tonight. Our fans were brilliant, the atmosphere was brilliant. London is a fantastic sports town and we enjoyed the Olympic games so much, it’s a big event that was great. The weather was good, everything is ok but only the result is so shit!”
