Every Liverpool fan remembers how bad things were in October of 2015 when Brendan Rodgers was relieved of his duties as Liverpool manager. Also every Liverpool fan remembers the “It can’t possibly be true” feeling when the rumors of the possibility of Jurgen Klopp becoming Liverpool manager started trickling out. The story, obviously, ends with Liverpool securing the services of Klopp and the rest is history.

During the US preseason tour, Klopp met with ace journalist Mel Reddy to open up about how he became Liverpool manager.

“To be honest, that day when we were here and spoke we were full of hope, full of dreams, full of optimism,” he tells ESPN FC. “Why would I not be? I signed [on] to become manager because it’s a wonderful club. I liked the squad, I loved the history, all that stuff.

”So I was very, very optimistic that we’d be successful. In my dreams in that moment, we were probably more successful during these [past] four years than we have been actually.”

Cannot imagine where Liverpool would be without Klopp.
