The coach who generates so much expectation and admiration among the public, that they even ask for signatures on his legs, which will surely become lasting scratches on his skin, the German Jürgen Klopp, justifies with his talent, translated into titles, all that he can generate among football fans.

The truth is that the German, with trophies, which are often the most valuable in this debate to label managers, and after defeating Manchester City, can boast as a helmsman who has already won it all with Liverpool, which is no small feat.

Klopp's collection of titles with the Reds, without bordering on exaggeration, is now immense, in terms of achievements, because they could well be equated in terms of quantity, for the value of them. The German was missing the Commnunity Shield and he's got it.

After a summer spent mulling over the unfortunate end to Liverpool's unprecedented quest for quadruple glory last campaign, which culminated in missing out on the Premier League and Champions League titles by the narrowest of margins, the joy was quickly restored by manager Jurgen Klopp on Saturday evening at the King Power stadium.

Three customary first pumps were unleashed by the Reds boss and he treasured every second he spent celebrating with the travelling he watched his side pick up their maiden honour of the new campaign, which bodes to be just as compelling as the record-breaking feats of the last.

That experience was amplified by Klopp's starting XI ranking as the highest average-aged side in the club's history since 1953, albeit significantly spiked by the inclusion of stand-in goalkeeper Adrian due to injuries to Alisson Becker and Caoimhin Kelleher.

Of the eleven selected by Klopp for the first contest of the season, nine of those played a part in ending Liverpool's 30-year wait for a Premier League title during the 2019/2020 season. With only Thiago Alcantara and Luis Diaz not plying their trade at Anfield during the record-breaking campaign.

Additionally, a further eight of those were part of the squad that claimed the club's sixth European Cup and accumulated 97 points in the Premier League during the 2018/19 season. And if you cast your mind even further back, seven of those given the nod by Klopp on Saturday afternoon were part of the side that reached the Reds' first Champions League final in eleven years as they suffered a cruel defeat to Real Madrid in Kyiv in May 2018.

It's from those experiences, good and bad, that Klopp has been able to increase the nous and know-how in his ranks during recent campaigns, highlighted by the six further honours the squad have successfully added to the 'Wall of Champions' since the heartbreak at the hands of Zinedine Zidane's side four years ago.
