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.
Part two of the docu-series, The Blueprint, explores how Klopp is able to effect immediate change in the atmosphere at each football club he has managed, both on and off the pitch.
After the introduction of the challenges that faced him in part one, this installment looks at how he is able to instil early shoots of belief in his players and the supporters, as well as how he goes about creating a tight-knit group with everyone pulling in the same direction.
The episode features contributions from Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish and Jamie Carragher; Klopp’s former neighbour and dressing room leader Adam Lallana; plus supporters, journalists, coaches and players who worked with him in Mainz and Dortmund, including Roman Weidenfeller and Patrick Owomoyela.
