    Jurgen Klopp: the Black Forest boy who brought the glory back to Anfield

    Jurgen Klopp: the Black Forest boy who brought the glory back to Anfield

    As Liverpool end their 30-year wait for the league title, we chart the rise of their remarkable manager Jurgen Klopp.

    We take you to Klopp's home village of Glatten in the Black Forest and to Mainz where he was a player for a decade, then tasted promotion and relegation as a manager.

    Then we travel to Dortmund where he won trophies, became a celebrity and had a pop song written in his honour. And finally to Anfield, where he has ended fans' yearning for a 19th league title.

    We'll speak to school friends, players, executives and fans to learn about how he developed his coaching philosophy, his big personality, his gifts as an orator and the man-management skills that set him apart from many of his peers.

    This is the comprehensive back-story of one of the most revered coaches of modern times.
