    Jürgen Norbert Klopp (; born 16 June 1967) is a German professional football coach and former player who is the manager of Premier League club Liverpool. Often credited with popularising the football philosophy known as Gegenpressing, Klopp is regarded by many as one of the best managers in the world.

A hard-working and physical player, he was deployed as a striker, before converting to play as a defender in 1995 until his retirement in 2001, during which time he began to study management. Upon his retirement in 2001, Klopp became the club's manager, leading them to promotion to the Bundesliga in 2004. After suffering relegation in the 2006–07 season and being unable to achieve promotion the following campaign, Klopp resigned at Mainz in 2008, departing as the club's longest-serving manager.
