After years wandering in the wilderness, Liverpool fans are starting to believe that their first Premier League title could within reach. And it is all down to a man hailing from the Black Forest of Germany, Jürgen Klopp. The new manager, appointed on October 9, described himself as the ‘normal one’ but added he hoped to deliver a trophy in 4 years.
“I am the Normal One,” Klopp said at the press conference announcing him as the new manager. “I was a very average player, became a manager in Germany at a special club, Mainz, then I had a great opportunity to take Dortmund, a special club for seven years.”
The Anfield faithful have embraced Klopp and made him a cult figure in his shirt time at the fabled club.
In celebration of the new hire, World Soccer Shop has created a special line of exclusive gear dedicated to ‘the normal one.’
And the move appears to be paying dividends. In his first 6 Premier League matches the Reds have taken 11 points and are up to 6th on the table. The run has included wins against last season’s champions, Chelsea, as well as this year’s title contender Manchester City. The lone set-back was against Crystal Palace.
How high can Klopp take Liverpool? He won the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and led the Black and Yellows to the UEFA Champions League final.
