Jurgen Klopp's rise from Bundesliga 2. to one of the most-wanted managers

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Jurgen Klopp is a better option for Liverpool than Carlo Ancelotti.
Gab Marcotti of ESPN FC believes that Jurgen Klopp would help to bring life back into Liverpool should he end up being hired as the manager.

The following is an excerpt from Raphael Honigstein's new book, Das Reboot: How German Football Reinvented Itself and Conquered the World.

In it, the clock is turned back more than a decade to look at the rise of a little-known manager named Jurgen Klopp.

Bild feted 'Kloppo' as the 'Harry Potter' of German football. He wore metal-rimmed glasses and the same youthful haircut as the wizard's apprentice, not to mention that him getting little Mainz into the Bundesliga reeked of magic. 'There's no...

Turkish Super Lig offers German footballers more than just big wages

Harald Schumacher moved to Fenerbahce in 1988, paving the way for countless German internationals who would later join the Turkish league.

In February 1987, Cologne and West Germany goalkeeper Harald "Toni" Schumacher made a mistake. He published a book.

His tell-all memoirs about life in the Bundesliga were filled with all the right ingredients -- mainly drugs in the form of doping, sex and in-fighting -- to make it a bestseller. It also derailed his career.

Schumacher was fired by Cologne and lost his place in the national team. Suddenly he was virtually unemployable and the only club willing to take him on were Schalke. The...

Mario Gotze bakes cake for 10 millionth Facebook fan

Mario Gotze promised a special treat to the 10 millionth person to "like" his Facebook page, and the Germany and Bayern Munich midfielder delivered on his promise.

Gotze baked a cake for one Bettina H. It was a banana-chocolate cake and, according to the Facebook post, Gotze's first effort. He also included one of his Germany jerseys in the care package.

Germany close on Euro 2016; Joachim Low and co. increasingly confident

GLASGOW -- Morning had barely broken as the German national team and an entourage of officials, VIPs and media set out to the airport through the Glasgow greyness. But the night before, which saw the world champions beat Scotland 3-2, was already consigned to history, a footnote to a story that will take a further nine months to begin in earnest.

The one goal that separated the visitors and the resilient hosts, in a curious match of deafening noise, strange goals and the odd sublime moment, meant...

Germany break Scotland's hearts in Euro 2016 qualifying

The world champions were put to the test against Scotland in their European Championship Qualifying match, having been draw level twice by Scotland before Germany were able to maintain the lead winning by a score of 3-2.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley sounds off on Scotland's travel planning for their latest Euro 2016 qualifiers in which they traveled to Georgia and faced Germany at home.

They made hard work of it at Hampden Park, but the world champions are back on track. Just. If Germany's qualification for next summer's European Championships was ever really in doubt, it no longer is. This surprisingly tense 3-2 victory over Scotland leaves Joachim Low's side in need of a single win to book their place in France.

The situation did not look so positive in October when Germany followed their unconvincing opening night win over Scotland with defeat to Poland and stalemate with Ireland....

Germany reach top of Euro 2016 qualifying group with win over Poland

World Champions Germany moved to the top of Group D in Euro 2016 qualifying as they beat Poland 3-1 in Munich.

Three quick thoughts from Germany's 3-1 win over Poland in European Championship qualifying from Frankfurt on Friday night.

1. Germany reach the top of Group D

A 2-0 defeat in Warsaw in the reverse fixture last September and a 1-1 draw with Ireland left Germany chasing Poland for nearly a year. The 2014 World Cup winners were out of form, injured and looking for motivation. Still, they went on to win the remaining games, and went into the tie with 13 points and in good shape after a long preseason.
