What has Klopp won for Liverpool? Jürgen Klopp is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season after almost 9 years in charge at Anfield. This includes almost 500 games and a host of trophies that he won to build Liverpool into the powerhouse they currently are.
The German collected seven different honors during his time in charge and leaves as one of the greatest managers in the history of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at what Klopp has won for Liverpool.
What has Klopp won for Liverpool?
Arriving at Anfield in October 2015 after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers, Klopp was expected to take Liverpool back to better days but no one could have seen that he would turn them into the juggernaut they’ve become.
His first game in charge was a goalless draw against Tottenham which followed two more draws in his first three games in charge. From there he would go on to orchestrate the Reds’ most successful era in the modern game.
He has won more than sixty percent of his over 450 games in charge and still has a number to get that percentage up before the end of his tenure. His next Premier League win will be his 200th with his record currently standing at 199 wins in 317 games. This is a sixty-three percent win rate in the league alone.

1. Domestic trophies
The German ended a 30-year drought for Liverpool when he won the Premier League in the 2019/20 season. They finished that season a whopping 18 points clear of City and only one point away from the Citizens’ previous record of total points. They had 99 that season.
The only downside was they won it in a pandemic-hit season and therefore lifted the trophy without fans in the stadium.
They had come very close to another League title the season before having finished on 97 points, only one behind City for the trophy.
He completed the domestic double in 2021/22 when they were on track for the quadruple. They won both the Carabao and FA Cup in close and scoreless encounters with rivals Chelsea that went to penalty shootouts. Goalkeeper Kelleher scored the winner in the Carabao while Kostas Tsimikas did the business in the FA.
Finally, the Germans could finish off the domestic honors when they won the Community Shield in 2022. This is his most recent trophy which they won by defeating champions Man City 3-1.
2. European and International trophies
Who can forget their Champions League triumph in the 2019/20 season? Having come so close the previous season but losing to Real Madrid, Klopp’s team made it all the way back to the final but made it clear they weren’t leaving without the trophy that time. Facing familiar foes in Tottenham, goals from Mo Salah and Divock Origi sealed what was Klopp’s first trophy at the club.
He would make it to another final in 2021/22 but again was on the wrong side of history to Madrid.
A few months after the European triumph, the Reds would lock horns with another familiar foe in Chelsea who were the reigning Europa League champions for the honour of the Uefa Super Cup. The teams would play out a dramatic 2-2 draw all the way after extra time but Liverpool would claim the spoils after scoring all five penalties in the shootout.
After conquering Europe, Liverpool were on a quest to conquer the world in the Club World Cup. A hotly contested final pitted them against Brazilian side Flamengo and ironically Roberto Firmini proved to be the difference in extra time.
What next for Liverpool?
Klopp will be looking to leave the club at the highest possible peak after his announcement. They have already booked their place in the Carabao Cup final while also still in the FA Cup. They also have a very good chance of winning the Europa League as they are in the knockout stages. The trophy they will most want though has to be the Premier League. Currently sitting in first, five points ahead of City, Klopp will want to cap off his stay at Anfield with another league title, this time in a stadium full of fans.
So to answer the question, what has Klopp won for Liverpool? He has won everything.
His time in England has been nothing short of a success and he is leaving the game on top. He will surely go down in not only Liverpool but Premier League history.
