Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp fought off a grueling competition to bag the Premier League Manager of the year award after a record breaking campaign that saw Liverpool clinch the English top flight with 7 games to spare.
The German mastermind helped Liverpool win the league by an amazing 18 points off former champions Manchester City after the games resumed amid the covid-19 pandemic.
In a season that was largely disrupted by the world-wide lockdown to curb spread of coronavirus, Klopp’s side held on to end their three decade long wait for the Premier League trophy.
Klopp’s win comes hot on the heels of defender Trent Alexander-Arnold being voted
as the Premier League Young Player of the season on Friday.
The former Dortmund manager fought off stiff competition from Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, Chelsea’s Frank Lampard and Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder.
This is Klopp’s second major win in as many weeks as he was also named LMA Manager of the Year award, beating Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth and Championship winner Marcelo Biesla who guided Leeds United back to the Premiership.
During the 2018/2019 season, Klopp led Liverpool to another historic Champions League win where they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final.
Liverpool were also crowned World Club champions in December 2019, and Klopp’s award today sums up what has been a wonderful journey for the manager.
