Milestone: Klopp set for 300th match as Liverpool manager

Liverpool manager – Jürgen Klopp will reach the milestone of 300 matches in charge of Liverpool when they face Leicester City this weekend.

Klopp has guided the Reds to 179 victories in his previous 299 games since he took the reins back in October 2015.

That tally includes wins on each of his side’s last three visits to Leicester, with the most recent a 4-0 Boxing Day success in 2019.

In LFC history, only Sir Kenny Dalglish (185) had won more matches than Klopp at the same stage of his managerial tenure.

Klopp got his chance to manage in the Premier League when he took over at Liverpool in October 2015.

The German arrived at Anfield after taking a short break from football following an impressive seven-year stay with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

On Thursday 8 October 2015, Liverpool announced Klopp as Brendan Rodgers’ replacement at Anfield.

He led the Reds to the UEFA Europa League final in 2015/16 and the UEFA Champions League final in 2017/18, although both matches ended in defeat.

Klopp was back in the Champions League final the following season, however, and this time guided his side to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

It was also an impressive domestic campaign for Klopp’s Reds, who finished a point behind champions Manchester City despite losing only one Premier League match in the entire 2018/19 season.

Better was to come the following campaign as Klopp guided Liverpool to their first Premier League title.

The Reds triumphed in style, setting a new record for the earliest title success, clinching victory with seven matches to spare, and equalling the 32 wins claimed by Man City in 2017/18 and in 2018/19.
