Jürgen Klopp Returns to the German Top Flight


Jürgen Klopp has made a dramatic return to German football by being announced as the new manager of Hamburg SV, a week after the departure of Frank de Boer who left to fill the vacancy at Atletico Madrid after just one season at the club, where he guided them to second place.

Klopp left Germany when he took the Liverpool job after five years at Borussia Dortmund, winning back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2o12. His tenure at Anfield lasted just ten months before he was fired with the club unable to secure a top four finish. He then joined Manchester City in the summer of 2014 lasting only until November.

City were sitting sixth at the time, a full ten points adrift of leaders and eventual champions Manchester United, though City clawed their way back into the title race, only being beaten by goal difference on the final day of the season.
