When Klopp took the job at Dortmund, not many of the team’s fans could have thought that one day this young coach would turn the team into a force in the Bundesliga.

Klopp was the one who brought Mainz 05 to their first appearance in the Bundesliga.

The combination of an anonymous Klopp and a Dortmund struggling after the disaster of bankruptcy has brought great success at Westfallen Stadium over the past seven years.

At that time, Klopp had nothing, not a bit of reputation.

The vast majority of Dortmund fans were surprised when they won the 2010-2011 Bundesliga championship.

But then Klopp’s team swept through the Bundesliga like a storm.

The following summer, Nuri Sahin, the best player in the Bundesliga last year, moved to Real Madrid for only $10.7 million, much lower than the number people expected of Dortmund’s conductor.

Sahin’s departure affected Dortmund in the early stages of the 2011-2012 season.

In the 2012 DFB-Pokal German National Cup final, Klopp’s Dortmund defeated Bayern 5-2 with a hat-trick from Robert Lewandowski.

`Right now, they are like China in the world economy. They look at what others are doing and copy it, only they have more money.`

Along with success on the field, in the summer of 2012, Dortmund dealt Bayern another slap in the face when they signed Marco Reus – one of the brightest young talents in German football at that time.

With Reus in the squad, Dortmund could not successfully defend the Bundesliga championship, but the following season marked a great success for Jurgen Klopp and his team in the Champions League arena.

Placed in the group of death including Ajax, Man City and Real Madrid, Dortmund became a phenomenon when they went undefeated and won the top spot.

But recent disappointing results show that Dortmund may need a change like what Klopp said.

Mario Gotze, Lewandowski and Reus became the fearsome trident that swept away all opponents to bring Dortmund to the final.

Dortmund entered the all-German final against Bayern.

The way Dortmund advanced to the final was enough to make them a phenomenon.

But the biggest cult is for Klopp.

The way he celebrated goals on the touchline, the way he burst into laughter during press conferences earned him the reputation of an eccentric, among other nicknames.

Klopp is the type who strictly adheres to the philosophy of one person for everyone, even his decision to leave probably came from true love for the club.

Failure in the Champions League final at Wembley was probably the starting point for this separation.

Lewandowski passed away a year later.

The image of Klopp laughing heartily in a tracksuit with blonde hair will forever be in the minds of Dortmund lovers.

Klopp will always have love for Dortmund and the club will always love him.
