If Jürgen Klopp was asked to produce a docu-series about himself, how would he go about it?
We think Jürgen would tell the stories of the people and places that have influenced and impacted him throughout his career as a football player and manager.
Supported by ERDINGER, The Anfield Wrap travelled to Glatten, Frankfurt, Mainz, Dortmund and around Liverpool to hear unique stories from the German’s journey, told by those who know him best.
The five part docu-series explores five recurring themes throughout Jürgen’s story — challenge, culture, journey, winning and legacy — and features footballers that played with and under him, friends that stood by his side through thick and thin, colleagues that helped him move to the next level and the fans that gave him their undying support throughout.
From growing up in the shadow of the famous Black Forest, to the beginning of Jürgen’s professional career in Frankfurt, becoming a hero as a player and subsequently the manager of Mainz, taking Borussia Dortmund right to the top of European Football, and waking up the sleeping giant in Liverpool.
This is a story directed and told by the fans that love Jürgen, but featuring stories from each of his homes: including the Mayor of his hometown Glatten; teammates from his Frankfurt days; son of his legendary manager Wolfgang Frank, plus the Mainz CEO who gave him his first job; members of his most successful Borussia Dortmund side; plus his former dressing room leader and neighbour Adam Lallana, plus legendary former player and manager Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool.
With 35 unique interviews filmed across four countries, The Anfield Wrap paints the full picture of Jürgen Klopp — the man, the manager and the leader.
