Head coach Only this chapter

Felice Mazzù

Date of birth: 12 March 1966
Nationality: Belgian
Playing career: Charleroi
Coaching career: RSC Nivelles (youth), Marchienne-au-Pont, CS Brainois, Royal Léopold, Tubize, RWS Bruxelles, Charleroi, Genk

• The son of Italian immigrants, Mazzù came through the ranks at Charleroi without making a first-team appearance and spent the rest of his playing days in Belgium's lower leagues, working as a PE teacher after hanging up his boots.

• His coaching career started in 1990 in the youth ranks at RSC Nivelles before spells at Marchienne-au-Pont, CS Brainois and Royal Léopold brought him to the attention of Tubize, where he took charge in 2009 having worked as assistant the previous season.

• Lasted only a year before taking over at RWS Bruxelles, whom he led to the third division title in 2011, leaving the club two years later amid financial problems.

• Returned to Charleroi as head coach in 2013, and in 2014/15 oversaw a sixth-placed finish and ensuing success in Belgium's play-offs as the club earned a first European campaign in 21 years. The following season's UEFA Europa League foray proved brief, Charleroi falling in the third qualifying round, but Mazzù continued to impress and was elected Belgium's coach of the year in 2017.

• He left Charleroi, after six seasons and 259 matches in charge, to join Belgian champions Genk on 3 June 2019 following the departure of Philippe Clement, kicking off his reign with victory against Mechelen in the Super Cup the following month.

Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: Glatten, Ergenzingen, Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, Mainz
Coaching career: Mainz, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo' was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them there until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign with a 5-2 final victory against Bayern München.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern. Dortmund reached more domestic cup finals in 2014 and 2015, losing to Bayern and Wolfsburg respectively, Klopp departing after the latter defeat.

• Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and reached the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, and there was more final disappointment in 2017/18, which ended in UEFA Champions League defeat by Real Madrid in Kyiv. Although Liverpool lost out to Manchester City in the 2018/19 Premier League, finishing second despite collecting 97 points and losing only once, solace came with victory against Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid. The Reds kicked off the following season by claiming the UEFA Super Cup on penalties at Chelsea's expense.
