In the first UK-written book about this extraordinary football manager, life-long Liverpool fan Anthony Quinn has crafted a uniquely revealing love-letter to Jurgen Klopp.
In early March 2020 Liverpool was two wins away from an extraordinary achievement, on course for its first league title win in 30 years - since the heady days of Kenny Dalglish - and likely to seal it in the Liverpool derby against its great rival Everton. And all this an incredible two months before the season was due to end. Then, as we all know, the season was postponed.
The architect of the club's great resurgence - including its 2019 UEFA Champions League win - has been Jurgen Klopp. In his personal love-letter to the man, Anthony Quinn, journalist, novelist and life-long Liverpool fan, has written an inspiring and affectionate portrait of this incredible German manager, who had performed a similar job at his previous club Borussia Dortmund, where he is still idolised despite his departure.
Closely following the three-month break - the media, outreach and community work of Klopp and his Liverpool players during that time, including club captain Jordan Henderson - as well as their title-clinching return, Quinn offers a uniquely revealing and personal take on this long-awaited triumph.
Less full biography and more love-letter, Klopp will also be, like Fever Pitch, a study of the author himself and of the universal appeal of sport, fandom and obsession.
