Review: Klopp – My Liverpool Romance by Anthony Quinn

“Klopp – My Liverpool Romance” is a book for Liverpool supporters, and Liverpool supporters only.  

Anthony Quinn’s love letter to Jürgen Klopp sketches a portrait of Liverpool’s Premier League winning manager through the prism of an unabashed Red. This isn’t a biography of the great German, who has resuscitated one of the giant clubs in England, although it makes references to his childhood, and his managerial history in Germany. It’s a tribute, pure and simple, pockmarked with reminders of their separate trials, tribulations and successes, and their beautiful collision.

The book works because it’s unabashedly written by a fan; Quinn’s affection for Klopp and Liverpool permeates every page. There is no pretence: this is not a “serious” biography or deep analysis of Liverpool under Klopp. It’s a jovial snapshot of one of the club’s greatest managers, easily read over a couple of hours, guaranteed to warm the heart of any fan wanting to reminisce on a couple of unforgettable seasons.
