Jurgen Klopp Named Premier League Manager of The Season

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been named the English Premier League manager of the season after guiding the Reds to their 19th English title, and their first in 30 years.

The Reds registered a new club record of 99 points last season, and were just one point away from equalling the league record set by Manchester City in the 2017/18 season.

Klopp maintained a 44-game unbeaten run in the league – the second-longest in top-flight history behind Arsenal’s record of 49 set in the 2003/04 season.

The 53-year-old manager, who joined Liverpool in 2015 from Borussia Dortmund, has since helped the Reds to win the Premier League, Champions League, Uefa Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup.

Klopp saw off competition from Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City) and Chris Wilder (Sheffield United) to clinch the annual accolade.

Liverpool won 32 of the 38 games throughout the 2019/20 campaign, with just two points dropped from the first 27 rounds of fixtures.

Last month, Klopp was awarded the League Managers Association’s Manager of the Year honour, beating Leeds’s Marcelo Bielsa, Wycombe’s Gareth Ainsworth and Sheffield United’s Wilder.

On Friday, 14th August, the Reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold was confirmed as the Premier League’s Young Player of the Season for 2019/20.

He is also up for the Player of the Season accolade, along with team-mates Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane.
