It was another night of success for Premier League champions Liverpool when they were crowned Team of the Year at the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year awards.
While Lewis Hamilton finished runner-up to Formula 1 superstar Jordan Henderson for the key award of the evening, Manager Jurgen Klopp was also named Coach of the Year.
Reflecting on his side’s success in an interview with the BBC, Klopp said: “My team deserves this because they did an incredible job. It’s a mix of talent, character, desire, and the power of the club, which is a big one. That all comes together and it was a great moment when we became champions.”
“We want to organize a big party when it’s allowed again, could take a little while but until then maybe we can win something else, we will see. We can’t wait to see the fans again and winning this prize in Manchester is even sweeter.”
