Their second prominent period is linked with Jürgen Klopp. Borussia won two consecutive national titles and reached the Champions League final with Klopp. A young manager created a great team in the early 2010s. It was mainly consist of young stars such as Mario Götze, Shinji Kagawa, Mats Hummels, Marco Reus, Ilkay Gündogan and Robert Lewandowski.
