Achievements

Klopp often implements the tactic known as the Gegenpress. Over here, if a team loses possession of the ball, they immediately attempt to win back possession. This is the complete opposite of the instinct to fall back and regroup for another attack.

According to the German, a well-executed counter-pressing system can be more effective than any playmaker when it comes to creating chances.

He described it as, “The best moment to win the ball is immediately after your team just lost it. The opponent is still looking for orientation where to pass the ball. He will have taken his eyes off the game to make his tackle or interception and he will have expended energy. Both make him vulnerable”

Jurgen Klopp’s salary is slated to be £7 million a year and Jurgen Klopp’s net worth is around £17.6 million a year.

 

Controversies

Jurgen Klopp is not a person who has been involved in many controversies. However, he has been known for his over the top celebrations, especially in his Liverpool tenure.

During a 2-1 win over Everton in January at the FA Cup, Klopp celebrated by running onto the pitch and hugging goalkeeper, Alisson. He was subsequently fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association.
