OPINION: Is There A 7th Year Curse For Jurgen Klopp In Every Club He Joins? Here Is Why

Liverpool have been on an upward trajectory since Jurgen Klopp was recruited into the premier league as Liverpool FC manager back in 2015. To be honest, several of his low - budget signings have developed into 'monster - mentality' players in the premier league and beyond.

From the likes of Andy Robertson, Sadio Mane and Goalkeeper, Allison Becker who were all low - Budget signings that people never thought they will never perform at Liverpool.

Jurgen Norbert Klopp is considered one of the best current managers in the world of football.

He is on the 7th year of his managerial career at Anfield as a first team coach.

Look at his Liverpool stats below.

However, the Liverpool manager has started on a very low note this season, with two consecutive opening fixture draws and a last time out lose to bitter rivals - Manchester United.

Let's me take you back to yester years of Klopp's reign as manager.

Klopp started his managerial career at Mainz, his boyhood club where he made distinguished his football career as a professional player. He transformed Mainz into a title contender team inside two seasons.

First, he earned Mainz promotion to top tier football in his third season as manager. Afterwards, the team got relegated later in his 6th year at the club.

In the 2006/07 season, Klopp's 7th year at Mainz, he resigned after failing to earn promotion for the team. Consequently, he was given the job at Borrussia Dortmund in the early 2008. This was one of the Mainz's bitter rivals back then.

Klopp transformed Dortmund into 6th and 5th in his first two seasons in charge. In his now growing reputation, he managed to lift back - back Bundesliga titles. He also won the German cup in the 2011/12 season.

His reputation was punctured when he lost the Champions League final to bitter rivals Bayern Munich in the 2012/13 season. This is a loss that really annoyed Klopp at his 6th year as Dortmund manager.

However, what caught the world of football is his style of play. Real-time pressing and very offensive attacking techniques were on display.

As Jurgen explained, “What I love is not serenity football, it’s fighting football – that’s what I like. What we call in Germany ‘English football’ – rainy day, heavy pitch, everybody is dirty in the face and they go home and can’t play football for the next four weeks.”

From here, he was unveiled at Anfield in 2015. As we all know, the rest is history for the last 6 seasons at Liverpool Football Club.

Therefore, is it a coincidence that the 7th Year comes with poor performance for the German manager?
