He has built and built each season is a small to big jumps each season. 7th,4th,4th,2nd and 1st.The job he has done borders on the miraculous, a World Club Championship final, a League Cup final, a Europa League final, 2 CL finals, a second place finish and our first League title in 30 years.
That is some CV especially considering we had only qualified for the CL once in the 7 years before he took over. When someone described him as the 21st century Bill Shankly (might have been Bruce Grobbelaar, I can’t remember now) that wasn’t hyperbole, it was pretty much just a statement of fact.
Transfers is a key one, It's oddly simple what he did with transfers, I've seen for years teams sign a new player in the same position year after year, I think Pep and his Full backs and Wenger and his attackers. Klopp bought players in areas we needed players and boom as he would say.
If you are prepared to wait and spend when needed then it's not a hard thing to do, it does seem some clubs are run like a kid on Fifa.
