Klopp established his status as one of European football’s most impressive young coaches during his seven-year spell with Dortmund, where he won back-to-back Bundesliga titles and led the club to the Champions League final in 2013.
BVB, under Klopp, produced some of the most thrilling football on the continent - and this clearly had not gone unnoticed by FSG.
Huge coup for Liverpool
The appointment of Klopp will be a major coup for Liverpool, who still have ambitions of securing a top-four finish this season.
Although a big ask for Klopp, that particular task is not beyond the revered German coach’s capabilities.
If, as expected, the 48-year-old agrees to join Liverpool by Friday, he will have a week to prepare for his first match in charge of Liverpool against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on September 17.
Win that fixture and the optimistic Liverpool faithful will start to believe that anything is possible with Klopp in charge.
