The Incredible Effect Jürgen Klopp Has Had On Liverpool Since Taking Charge

Liverpool have once again become a powerhouse in European football thanks to their dramatic improvement under Jürgen Klopp.

According to Transfermarkt, there has been a 175 per cent increase in the squad value since the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager's arrival at Anfield in 2015.

While the Liverpool squad was worth €400m four years ago, the stock value has continued to rise as Klopp's side made progress each season.

Fast-forward to now and Transfermarkt lists the Reds' current squad at an impressive value of €1.1bn.

But there has also been a six-fold increase in Liverpool's club value since 2010, climbing up to €1.8bn on the market.

Liverpool narrowly missed out on winning the Premier League trophy, but they pushed Manchester City to the final day of the season in the race for the title.

But Klopp was able to claim his first piece of major silverware at Anfield after his side beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the Champions League final.

And the Liverpool boss was optimistic about the future of the club even before he won Europe's top-tier club competition.

After their title challenge ended, the 51-year-old German was quick to point out that his side could keep challenging at the top level for many years.

"There's a lot to come, a lot of years; it's all about you and what you do with it, and that's what we do with it," he said.

"People will tell us it's 30 years [since Liverpool won the Premier League], but they have bigger problems, to be honest.

"We will go again. This team tried it the first time and I really think they did it quite impressively for a first time.

"This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool, but we play in a league with other very good teams and we have to accept that, no problem."

Will Liverpool win the Premier League title next season?
