Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp is one of the most successful coaches in the world today. Though his success did not start from his stint at Mainz, he picked up his reputation from there, guiding the club up to the Bundesliga and helping them stay there.
At Borussia Dortmund, he became the face of the club and its 'gengenpressing' movement. He also had impressive success at the club, winning the Bundesliga twice (2010/11 & 2011/12) and also guiding the Black and Yellows to their first-ever and only-ever UEFA Champions League final (2013) amidst other domestic cup victories.
After a 1 year leave from football, Klopp returned to the dugout in 2015, this time at flailing giants, Liverpool. The German tactician with an infectious smile has won the hearts and won the titles at the Anfield Stadium so far.
He has presided over a resurgence of Liverpool, leading them to their 5th UEFA Champions League title (2019) and their first English Premier League title in the modern era (2020). For his amazing feat at Liverpool, the 54-year-old coach is being paid handsomely.
How much is Jurgen Klopp's salary at Liverpool?
Jurgen Klopp is one of the highest-paid coaches in world football. The German coach has come a long from his time at Mainz or Borussia Dortmund. At the Signal Iduna Park, Klopp was earning an annual salary of €4m (€77,000 weekly).
On signing for Liverpool in 2015, it could not be ascertained how much the Bundesliga-winning coach was earning but a contract extension in 2019 significantly bumped up his earnings. In the aftermath of leading Liverpool to the UEFA Champions League title, the German coach was rewarded with a new 5-year contract till the 2023/24 season.
Klopp's salary was also increased, becoming one of the highest-paid coaches in the world with an annual salary of £10m (£192,307 weekly). This figure puts him in the wage bracket of the Top 10 highest-paid coaches alongside tacticians such as Diego Simeone, Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane.
Over the 5 years of his contract, Jurgen Klopp will earn at least £50m in salaries not taking into account match and title bonuses. If the German coach could add to his solitary league title and UEFA Champions League victory, then he would be in line for another major contract upgrade.
