To mark four years since Jurgen Klopp joined Liverpool, the club have released a selection of key stats on his time in charge. One in particular stood out from the rest and has Klopp unexpectedly ranked above Liverpool’s greatest mangers in a key area.
With a win percentage of 58.82%, Klopp sits second on the club’s all-time list of managers. After 221 games Klopp has amassed an incredible 130 wins at Liverpool.
This return is better than both Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly, two of the clubs greatest ever managers.
The only man to hold a higher win percentage than Klopp is John McKenna who boasts a winning record of 69.44%.
McKenna’s stats are only over the course of one season where he guided Liverpool to 25 wins in 36 games in 1895/96.
Klopp has managed to sustain his success over a much longer period at Anfield.
The Liverpool boss has lost as many games in the Reds’ last 60 as he did in his first nine with the club.

You wouldn’t back against Klopp improving this winning statistic as he continues to succeed in the Liverpool dugout.
A new era of success is upon the club after last year’s Champions League victory. Klopp can now continue to win games and trophies at Liverpool.
Whatever the stats say, he has still got some work to do before he can be considered alongside greats such as Shankly and Paisley
