The German manager's side Liverpool will face Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League.

When his teams play Chelsea on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp will preside over his 1000th game as a manager. The German manager has come a long way and is unquestionably among the top managers.

He has become one of the most acclaimed managers in Europe thanks to his philosophy and playing style. Over the course of his 23-year management tenure, Klopp won every trophy in his management career.

How did it all start?

The German manager started his managerial career in 2001 at Mainz, who were in the second division of the German league. He implemented his preferred system, gegenpressing, which translates to "heavy metal football," where players press relentlessly until they win the ball back. As Klopp was successful in turning Mainz into a competitive team.

And as a result, Mainz received its first-ever promotion to the Bundesliga. As Klopp's popularity grew, major German clubs began to offer him positions, and Borussia Dortmund was fortunate to capture the 55-year-old.

When Klopp joined Dortmund in 2008, he helped the team establish a new foundation and overthrow Bayern Munich's hegemony in the league.

In the 2012–13 season, he also led them to the Champions League final, where they ultimately fell to league rivals Bayern Munich.

He remained in command of Dortmund for eight years before taking over Liverpool in the Premier League. The Merseyside had lost its identity at that stage, and Klopp's appointment helped the team regain its position as a top team in the league and in Europe.

How have clubs performed under Jurgen Klopp?

The 55-year-old has managed 999 games overall, winning 538 and losing 222. After changing clubs, his winning percentage record has improved.

At Mainz, it won 40.4% of the games. He also had a 56.4% victory rate at Dortmund. And at Liverpool, he had a 60.7% winning percentage.

He won two Bundesliga championships as well as domestic cups during his stint at Dortmund. He also won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup during his tenure at Liverpool.

Who have been Klopp’s top rivals?

Klopp's rivalry started with Pep Guardiola in the England top flight, as he is the only manager he had to face most times. However, they also crossed each other’s paths while in the Bundesliga, as Klopp won three of eight matches when he faced Guardiola’s Bayern.

During his time at Liverpool, Klopp has defeated Guardiola's City in eight of the 19 games. He has also won the most games against any manager with 11 victories in 27 games, but he has also suffered the fewest losses with nine overall setbacks.

Another intriguing fact is that anytime Klopp reached a new managerial milestone, he never lost a game. He drew with Chelsea in his 800th game as a manager and also in his 200th, 300th, 400th, 500th, and 600th games.

Some of the best performances of the players and clubs under his tutelage

His career has also had some noteworthy occasions, such as the 2019 5-5 draw between his team and Arsenal. while we also witnessed one of Liverpool's biggest victories when they defeated Bournemouth by nine.

In addition, Dortmund and Liverpool have combined for 205 goals in 100 European matches in the Champions League, winning 58 of them.

And in one of the most memorable games, Dortmund defeated Real Madrid 5-1 in the 2012–13 Champions League semifinals, thanks to five goals from Robert Lewandowski.

And when his team plays Chelsea in the Premier League, the German will achieve one of his crowning achievements as a manager.
