Jurgen Klopp has arrived on English soil and comfortably moved into Brendan Rodgers' old Merseyside 1.2 million penthouse apartment. His arrival as Liverpool FC manager could prove to be one of the most exciting things to happen to the Premier League since Jose Mourinho's arrival in 2004 and despite the German labelling himself as "the normal one" he has the ability to be as influential at Anfield as the "special one" was (and still is, kind of) at Stamford Bridge. The 48-year-old took over Dortmund in 2008 after the club finished 13th in Bundesliga under their previous manager Thomas Doll. Prior to his move he managed Mainz 05 from 2001 to 2008 and achieved promotion to the Bundesliga in 2004 before qualifying for the UEFA Cup in 2005-6. Under the German's leadership Dortmund won two successive Bundesliga titles, the German Cup and reached the Champions League final in 2013 at Wembley under Klopps stewardship. Despite leaving the club in 2015 after a disappointing seventh place finish, he is still considered a legend around the Westfalenstadion. The German has had a colourful history in management already and we have looked at some of the best photographs of the new Liverpool boss since he started in management in 2001.
