Jurgen opens up about his father, Norbert Klopp

In an interview in 2018, Jurgen Klopp admitted that his father was a tough man, but he loved him and his family a lot despite his hard outer shell. Norbert was described to be a pusher, someone who pushes people to do the best.

"He wasn't the most patient guy, so it was very awkward when I wasn't as good as he wanted. He was a natural mentor, a rough one, a drill sergeant instead," 

said Jurgen.

According to Klopp, at five or six years of age, his daily training practice was to race his father from the training pitch to the halfway line.

He also said that Norman made him a quick player and did not fail to educate his kids every day.

Jurgen continued with, 

"When I played for Mainz, he was always proud, and I wasn't a decent player. Sadly, the year before I became a manager, he died, but I'm Christian and think he now has the greatest place in the world to see it all."

Norbert Klopp's battle with cancer

Norbert was a hard and rigid man, but he tried to fill fire and energy in others' lives. It was found out that Norbert had cancer in 1998. The battle went on for two years after Norbert gave up and passed away in 2000.

This was a big blow to the Klopp family, especially Jurgen, as he could not tell him he had become the Liverpool manager.

After the death of his father, Jurgen addressed his fans with tears running down his face. He said that whatever he has become is because of his dad. He is glad that Norbert is in a better place.
