During eight-plus years as manager of Liverpool FC, Jurgen Klopp won:

*Premier League, 2019-20.

*UEFA Champions League, 2018-19.

*FIFA Club World Cup, 2019.

*FA Cup, 2021-22. (I was there.)

*Football League Cup, 2021-22 and 2023-24. (I was there for the latter.)

*UEFA Super Cup, 2019.

*FA Community Shield, 2022.

He won the ***king lot. Now you're gonna believe us.

Liverpool FC under Klopp were also Premier League runner-up twice and UEFA Champions League runner-up twice.

That's quite a resume, especially having to punch up constantly. When Klopp wasn't able to flatten Goliath, he certainly staggered him.

But those trophies only scratch the surface of what Klopp did for the football club, LFC's supporters and the city of Liverpool.

Liverpool FC has always been about "we." But Klopp solidified that, amplified it and took the concept to a place it had never been. He had his finger on the pulse of his team, individual players, staff, fan base and community like no coach or manager I've witnessed. Klopp made you as invested as him.

To my mind, Klopp is the best coach or manager that's ever been. The only one I'd compare him to is Herb Brooks, author of the 1980 "Miracle on Ice."

Klopp let Liverpool FC supporters see things that, perhaps, we never thought we'd see again. He leaves the club in a state where great achievement seems possible moving forward. (Welcome, Arne Slot.)

It was epic. Some of my very best sports memories.

You won't see another one like Jurgen Klopp. My respect and gratitude for Klopp and what he did goes beyond measure.

Thanks, boss. You made the people happy. Not least me. #LFC #YNWA
