Klopp’s work with Liverpool over the last couple of years has been phenomenal, the former Borussia Dortmund boss will lead the Reds to their first league title in almost 30 years this season.
With the Merseyside outfit looking unstoppable against some top team this season, they’ve also shown that they have a solid chance of retaining the Champions League title this term.
