Jürgen Klopp is a German football manager and former player. Jürgen Klopp is currently the manager of Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
With Jürgen Klopp as a manager, Borussia Dortmund won the Bundesliga in 2011 and 2012, the DFB-Pokal in 2012, and the DFL-Supercup in 2008 (unofficially) and 2013. Jürgen Klopp won the German Football Manager of the Year in 2011 and 2012.

Upon Jürgen Klopp's retirement playing for 1. FSV Mainz 05, Jürgen Klopp was appointed as the club's manager. Jürgen Klopp remained as manager for seven years, during which time Jürgen Klopp led the team to its first appearance in the Bundesliga, and qualification for the 2005--06 UEFA Cup. At the end of the 2006--07 season, Mainz 05 were relegated, but Jürgen Klopp chose to remain with the club. However, due to the fact that they were not able to achieve promotion, Jürgen Klopp resigned at the end of the 2007--08 season.
Borussia Dortmund's league form during the 2012--13 season was not as impressive as in the previous campaign, with Jürgen Klopp insisting that his team would focus on the Champions League to make up for their disappointing run in that competition in the previous season. Jürgen Klopp's team were drawn against Manchester City, Real Madrid and Ajax in the coined 'Group of Death'. However, they did not lose a game, topping the group with some impressive performances, especially against José Mourinho's Madrid side. Jürgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund progressed all the way to the final, meeting Real Madrid again in the semi final stages of the competition. After an excellent result against them at home in the first leg, a 4--1 victory, a 2--0 loss meant Dortmund only narrowly progressed to the final. Dortmund lost the final 1--2 to Bayern Munich, with an 89th minute goal from Arjen Robben.
In the beginning of the 2013--14 season, Jürgen Klopp extended his contract until June 2018. Jürgen Klopp received a fine of €10,000 on 17 March 2014 after getting ejected from a Bundesliga match against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Jürgen Klopp ejection was a result of "verbal attack" on the referee. Deniz Aytekin, who was the referee, stated that Jürgen Klopp's "behavior was rude on more than one occasion." Borussia Dortmund vorstand chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke stated that "I have to support Jürgen Klopp 100 percent in this case" because Jürgen Klopp saw no reason for a fine and denied that Jürgen Klopp insulted the fourth official.
Jürgen Klopp's popularity is used in advertisements by, among others, the footwear-, athlete clothing- and sporty fashion-company Puma, the carmaker Opel and the German cooperative banking group Volksbanken-Raiffeisenbanken. According to Horizont, trade magazine for the German advertising industry, and the business weekly Wirtschaftswoche, Jürgen Klopp's role as "brand ambassador" for Opel successfully helped the struggling carmaker to increase sales.
