Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want one, but Liverpool fans would be delighted to see a statue of the German outside Anfield one day.
Since his arrival in 2015, Klopp has turned Liverpool’s fortunes around and delivered their first league title in 30 years.
The Reds are no longer the butt of the jokes, but a true powerhouse in the modern game.
And Klopp has helped to transform Liverpool off the pitch as well as on it.
- Man City players sing about LFC no trophies
- 'Arsenal's Invincibles are better than Liverpool'
- Fans believe Klopp is a better manager than Pep
Some of the stats are remarkable.
In 2014/15, Liverpool’s last season before Klopp’s appointment, the club generated £298 million in revenue. In 2018/19, their revenue had risen by 79 per cent to £533 million.
That revenue growth of £235m was the second-highest of the ‘Big Six’ clubs, with only Tottenham recording a bigger increase (£264m).
And during Klopp’s tenure, Liverpool’s net transfer spend of £278m is only around half as much as Man City (£594m) and Man United (£542m). It’s also considerably less than Chelsea’s £414m.
Liverpool’s broadcast revenue of £261m in 2019 was the highest in the world, just above Barcelona.
And the Reds’ income from European TV money between 2015/16 and 2018/2019 (£230m) was the second-highest among English clubs. That’s despite failing to qualify for Europe in 2017.
