In the 2019-20 campaign, Jurgen Klopp earned stunning achievements, which caught the attention of the League Managers Association.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has been crowned the year’s Manager of the League Managers Association (LMA).
The Reds recorded a total of 99 points and won their first 30-year top-flight title under the supervision of Klopp.
In the whole Premier League season, they lost just three games and finished off second-placed Manchester City with a whopping 18 points clear.
Having been presented with the Sir Alex Ferguson Trophy, named after the iconic ex-Manchester United manager, Klopp said: “I am absolutely delighted to be named the winner of this wonderful Sir Alex Ferguson Trophy, named after a man I admire so much.”
“Winning this award feels extra special because my fellow managers vote for it.”
“It is an honor to be in the company of so many managers previously appointed as LMA Manager of the Year, including Liverpool managers such as Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rodgers in recent years.”
“Without the superb input from my coaching staff, everything we’ve accomplished at Liverpool this year couldn’t have been done; they make us a really special bunch of football brains.”
“I love working with my coaches, my players, and everyone at Liverpool and, of course, I’m thankful for all our wonderful fans in Liverpool for the support.”
