Klopp has now achieved a mix of the greatest feats of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, albeit their greatness was also in repeating those feats for the length of time that Klopp hasn’t yet had the chance to experience. He has built the club up from outsiders to champions, in the way that Shankly did, if not from such a low starting point (but in an era where it’s harder to claw back deficits); and he took the team to the European pinnacle, just like Paisley. He even added the new honour of World Champions. In addition, Klopp has broken all kinds of club records, and several English football records.

As such, he now moves ahead of my beloved pair of Kenny Dalglish and Rafa Benítez in the pantheon, as well as overtaking Joe Fagan, who unlike Dalglish (because of the post-Heysel ban) and Benítez (because the club were too far behind Manchester United and Chelsea when he took over), added both the European and English crowns in his brief stint. But Fagan, who could have been a great manager, was mostly using Bob Paisley’s team in 1984, and retired prematurely in 1985 in the aftermath of the tragedy at Heysel. Fagan could have done more, but he was already in his sixties; while Dalglish’s sensational 1987/88 team never got to pit itself against the European elite. Dalglish too was diminished by another stadium tragedy, this time Hillsborough.

"Good things come out of the garrisons" after his daughter won the 100m Gold For Jamaica.

"It therefore is useless and pointless, unless it is for share malice and victimisation to arrest and charge a 92-year-old man for such a simple offence. There is nothing morally wrong with this man smoking a spliff; the only thing wrong is that it is still on the law books," said Chevannes.
