Liverpool Manager
Jurgenn Klopp

Here some of his best quotes.

On competing against Bayern Munich
"Go through the world and find me a team who can finish as champions in the same league as Bayern. If we should finish second this summer, I'll find a truck and drive it through my garden. If nobody will rejoice, I'll do it alone.

"We have a bow and arrow and if we aim well, we can hit the target. The problem is that Bayern has a bazooka. The probability that they will hit the target is clearly higher. But then Robin Hood was apparently quite successful."

On finally defeating Bayern 
"When Dortmund last won here 19 years ago, most of my players were still being breast-fed."

On Mats Hummels' injury problems
"We will wait for him like a good wife waiting for her husband who is in jail."

On Mario Gotze joining Bayern
"He's leaving because he's Guardiola's favourite. If it's anyone's fault, it's mine. I can't make myself shorter and learn Spanish."

On his slightly less successful playing days
"I never succeeded in bringing to the field what was going on in my brain. I had the talent for the fifth division, and the mind for the Bundesliga. The result was a career in the second division."

On the difference between himself and Arsene Wenger
"He likes having the ball, playing football, passes. It's like an orchestra. But it's a silent song. I like heavy metal."

On his 2012 hair transplant
"Yes, it's true. I underwent a hair transplant. I think the results are really cool, don't you?"

On signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan 
"Mkhitaryan fits us like an arse on a bucket. What he offers is exactly what we need."

On being compared to 'The Special One' Jose Mourinho 
"I am 'The Normal One'. I am a normal guy from the Black Forest. I was a very average player. I don't compare myself with these genius managers from the past."

Saying something nice about Alex Ferguson
"It's a big honour to talk to Sir Alex. For a manager it's nearly the best thing you can do, to sit there and listen. I needed 10 minutes to understand what he was saying and then it was OK. Maybe he is the greatest ever, the John Lennon of football or something like this."

On signing players
"If I spoke to a player now and he told me: 'If you were playing in the Champions League next year then I would be really interested,' I would put the phone down. That is what I would say to players. It is about pushing the train, not jumping on a running train."

Discussing transfer fees
"I read in Germany that there are still transfers in the Bundesliga for £5million. You can imagine that happening in England? No chance! Yet it is similar quality."

On Anfield
"I'm not a dreamer but I'm a romantic. I love the stories and Anfield is one of the best places in the football world. Now I'm here. I'm a lucky guy and really looking forward to the first match."

His say on 'The Neville brothers'
"The pundits, former players most of them, forgot completely how it felt when they got criticised. Especially the Neville brothers; the one who was the manager he obviously should know that too much criticism never helps.
"But he is not interested in helping a Liverpool player, I can imagine. He showed he struggled with the job to judge players so why do we let him talk about players on television?"

Top 10 Tallest Football Players in The World 2021

The average height of a Footballer is 5-foot-9, not significantly tall. Once one looks at of the best football players of all time, the likes of Diego Maradona, Pele, Ferenc Puskas and Johan Cruyff, they're all underneath six feet. Take a glance at today's prime players, together with Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard and Neymar, and also the trend continues. Of course, some oppose the trend, with obvious examples of Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, all of whom are taller than six feet. The tendency towards shorter players is not any surprise, particularly in creative and assaultive players. Meanwhile, for central defenders and a few attackers, height may be a large advantage, within the obvious case of aerial duels. The opposite position that tends to examine taller players is in goal, you will rarely see a great goalkeeper underneath six feet. This list is restricted solely to players who have contended at a good level of professional football, thus th
