Everybody loves the flamboyant Klopp for both his charisma and ability to extract the best of his players.

The German kicked off the decade by helping Borussia Dortmund win back-to-back Bundesliga titles. He was unlucky, though, not to win the Champions League final in 2013 after BVB lost to Bayern Munich.

Afterwards, Klopp fancied a new challenge and signed up for Liverpool in the Premier League.

Despite losing his first three finals with the club, however, he finally delivered in style by winning the 2018/19 Champions League. It ended a seven-year trophy drought for the Reds.

Now Klopp is on the verge of leading Liverpool to a first league title since 1990 with a commanding 10-point lead in the standings.

And following their Club World Cup success, it would take a brave man to bet against Liverpool right now.
