At Borussia Dortmund, Klopp made ordinary players become superstars.
Which is exactly why Liverpool brought him in 2015 and he has so far delivered.
5. Alisson Becker
Liverpool signed Alisson for a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper after Karius cost them a Champions League title. Alisson won the Golden Glove in the Premier League and Champions League in his debut season and also broke numerous records. He’s the reigning the Best FIFA Goalkeeper.
4. Andrew Robertson
Not many people were convinced when Liverpool signed Andrew Robertson from the relegated Hull City and doubts grew stronger when he couldn’t displace Alberto Moreno in the first half of the 2017/18 season.
Now, the Scott is arguably the best left-back in the world and an indispensable member of Klopp’s starting XI. Strictly in terms of return on investment, he might be Liverpool’s best signing under Klopp.
3. Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane was Klopp’s first high-profile signing as Liverpool manager and the Senegalese man hit the ground running at Liverpool. He has evolved into one of the best players in the world under Klopp and has racked up 68 goals and 24 assists in only 136 appearances.
2. Mohamed Salah
When Klopp wanted to sign Julian Brandt from Bayer Leverkusen, Liverpool’s sporting director Michael Edwards and his team of sports analysts convinced the manager that Mohamed Salah is the perfect player to take Liverpool’s attack to greater heights.
The Egyptian has 78 goals, 33 assists and numerous records to his name after only 117 games in a Liverpool shirt.
1. Virgil van Dijk
Klopp wanted to sign Van Dijk in the summer of 2017 but Liverpool was forced to apologise and withdraw their interest after Southampton complained about an illegal approach.
The Liverpool manager refused to panic and sign another defender. Instead, he waited a few months and signed the Dutchman in January 2017. He’s now the best defender in the world and a front runner for the Ballon d’Or.
