Little People Big Dreams: Jurgen Klopp
In this book from the highly acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Jürgen Klopp, the game-changing soccer 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 soccer. 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 ten years as a professional soccer player, 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 Football Club in England. Within just five years he had made them champions of England, Europe and the world. Jürgen is widely considered soccer’s best manager and is admired for his leadership style, which champions hard work, compassion and, above all, team spirit!
This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the footballer’s life.
