The world of football is a cruel world, with managers coming and going more often than not.

Usually, managerial changes occur due to owners hoping a new era is looming round the corner.

Only 39 out of 90 managers have been in charge for more than a year which showcases the cutthroat industry they place themselves in when they take charge of a new team.

Jurgen Klopp has, however, managed to endure 7 years and 150 days at the helm of English giants Liverpool, meaning he is third in the longest serving managers list in English football.

Impressive, right?

A lot has changed since Klopp’s introduction from Borussia Dortmund in 2015 and maybe this is the reason why he has stuck around for so long.

Liverpool were 10th in the league when he replaced Northern Irish boss Brendan Rodgers but has since enjoyed a trophy-fuelled reign of the club, including a Premier League and a Champions League to name a couple.

John Coleman of Accrington Stanley and Simon Weaver of Harrogate Town are the only bosses ahead of him on the list.

Liverpool are currently three points adrift from top four with a game in hand on North Londoners Tottenham Hotspur and so will be hoping for Tuesday and Wednesday night football next season.

Pundits across social media have spoke of a seven-year curse that Klopp might have found himself under this season following his underwhelming start.

But the German seems to be set in stone in his position for next campaign.
