Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has been named English Premier League (EPL) Manager of the Season. Kloop won the prestigious award after beating 3 other coaches to the award.
The Liverpool boss beat Frank Lampard of Chelsea, Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City, and Chris Wilder of Sheffield United football clubs to the award.
The 53-year-old German staged a superb campaign with the Reds this season, as Liverpool secured their first league title in 30 years.
It can be said that the Reds not only won the title but did so in some style after securing 99 points in 38 games to finish 18 points ahead of Manchester City, their closest contender.
Jurgen Klopp’s team, Liverpool, has been graced with other prestigious awards. Recently, one of the Club’s right back player, Trent Alexander-Arnold was named Premier League Young Player of the Season.
The Red’s Manager also won the LMA Manager of the Year award last month after outperforming Leeds’ Marcelo Bielsa, Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth, and Sheffield United’s Wilder.
Klopp’s Liverpool team also won the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup not too long ago. They are still the reigning winners of the Champions League, following their victory last June.
It was a season to remember for the Reds, as they set an outstanding record by remaining unbeaten at Anfield.
Most people are not surprised to see Klopp win the award, given the transformation he brought into the Liverpool FC. Now, one could confidently rate the club as one of the best teams in the world.
The German expressed happiness over the title he won with Liverpool. He honestly said he couldn’t be happier, since he couldn’t have dreamt of something like that and never did until last year.
“We were not close enough three years ago, a year ago we were really close…what the boys have done in the last two-and-a-half years, the consistency they show is absolutely incredible and second to none.”
Jurgen Klopp is regarded by many as one of the best Managers in the world. He started his managing career in the EPL when he took over as head coach at Liverpool in 2015.
Klopp started and finished his professional career at German club FSV Mainz 05. He made over 300 appearances as a player, before picking up the managing mantle.
