Little People, Big Dreams: Jürgen Klopp - Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This little biography tells the inspiring story of
Jürgen Klopp, the game-changing football manager and inspirational leader.
Little Jürgen grew up in a village in Germany’s Black Forest and spent most of his time watching or playing football. As a small child, Jürgen listened to matches on the car radio, making tactical suggestions only to hear them implemented moments later!
As an adult, he spent 10 years as a professional footballer, before deciding his future lay off the pitch. Jürgen successfully managed German teams Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund to multiple victories, and then became the manager of Liverpool FC. Within five years he had made them champions of England, Europe and the world. Jürgen is widely considered football’s best manager and is admired for his leadership style, which champions hard work, compassion and, above all, team spirit!
