Back in May 2015, FourFourTwo’s cover story focused on Jurgen Klopp. Things weren’t going too well for him at Borussia Dortmund, so we ran a piece looking at whether he was about to swap German football for the Premier League and asked which club needed him most – Manchester City, Manchester United or Arsenal?

When Manchester City were rubbish
They may now be a slick footballing juggernaut and among the favourites for the game’s biggest honours this season, but two decades ago they were slumming it in the third tier – and could have sunk even lower.
