Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s best five goals are glorious

At his Liverpool unveiling, Jurgen Klopp claimed to have been a bang average player. Despite winning the Bundesliga twice as a manager with Borussia Dortmund, the German never played in his country’s top flight as a player.

Klopp spent 11 years with his beloved Mainz, who he went on to manage between 2001 and 2008, earning them their long-awaited promotion before a teary farewell when he took over at Dortmund.


Most wouldn’t argue that Klopp is a far superior manager than he was a footballer (even those who’ve seen his nutmeg of Roberto Firmino in training). But Klopp scored a few decent goals in his day.


That’s right. If these absolute bangers for Mainz are anything to go by, Klopp’s been selling himself short.

Jurgen Klopp’s top five goals as a manager

It turns out Klopp bloody loves a volley, with a couple of his top-five goals straight from the locker of Marco van Basten. If ever Klopp finds his strikers short of goals at Liverpool, he should direct them to this YouTube clip.
