Comparing Klopp to Hodgson or having a thought of him being the German Hodgson is ridiculous really. Klopp is a top class manager who is highly rated everywhere and took a side that almost went bust in 2003 to 2 Bundasliga titles, a CL final and other domestic trophies. Yes he had a poor season but he still got Dortmund into a cup final this weekend which is always nice too.
I mean compare the two also tactically and their football philosophy, “Football only has a right to exist if it brings joy to the crowd, captivates them, draws them in,” Jurgen Klopp ... "The media use terms like 'sexy' in relation to football and that doesn't fit my description too well'' Roy Hodgson. Two completely different types of football philosophy, one who actually wants his team to play football and is well adapted to today's football (Klopp) and the other who is still stick in the 70s with his dinosaur tactics and playing way too deep and on the defensive. Even Roy Hodgson said it himself that his philosophy hasn't changed much since the 70s!
Also, compare them on how they handle the media, imagine Klopp losing to Northampton in a league cup game, do you think he will go out and say ''they were formidable opponents''? Never, look at how he handled the media when he lost to RM 3-0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NukuaSFoaq4
Admits he lost, shuts up and moves on instead of making excuses.
His Dortmund team has beaten Real Madrid 4-1, Arsenal 2-0 and other countless big clubs in the Champions League. To me that's a sign of an excellent manager that managed to build a strong side with little resources, I would hire him in a heartbeat.
