The arrival of Jurgen Klopp to Liverpool in 2015 opened a new page in the history of the Reds.
The club used to scramble for places in the Europa League and never fought the likes of Chelsea, Man United and their neighbors City, for the Premier League title, leaving a place in the Champions League.
Fast forward to four years later, five years later, and the club once again earned its place at the table of the best players in Europe, and it all goes back to Klopp.
The Reds won their first title of the season on Sunday night, beating Chelsea 11-10 on penalties to win the Carabao Cup.
It would have been a particular victory for Klopp if his celebrations were to go on.
The German Journey is a beautiful story. He started in Mainz but made a name for himself while managing Borussia Dortmund, which turned him into a world-class defeater and managed to end Bayern Munich’s dominance, albeit for a short period, of the Bundesliga.
Klopp won 10 major trophies during his coaching career that took him from Mainz to Borussia Dortmund and now Liverpool.
He led Dortmund to the Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, a period in which he also won the German Cup.
Then the German tasted glory again in 2013 and 2014 when he led Dortmund to the German Super Cup.
He continued his success in England with Liverpool, winning his first title in 2019 as the Reds beat Tottenham to lift the Champions League, before beating Chelsea in the European Super Cup final.
The following season, they swapped the Champions League title for the Premier League title, ending a 30-year wait.
Klopp’s side became world champions as Roberto Firmino scored the only goal of the match as they beat Flamengo 1-0 in extra time to win the FIFA Club World Cup.
Despite this success, Klopp had his fair share of disappointments, with the Champions League final loss to Bayern in 2013 at Wembley finishing first.
In total, Klopp lost six finals between 2013 and 2018, including three while training with Merseyside FC.

The Reds only have one cup in the cupboard and they will go for more. They are six points behind Manchester City in the Premier League and have enjoyed a fantastic season in Europe, as they lead 2-0 over Inter Milan in the Champions League Round of 16.
A win at Wembley on Sunday could boost the Reds and push them to even greater heights this season
