Klopp Named Premier League Manager Of The Season
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League manager of the 2019/20 season.
The 53-year-old German led the Reds to their first top-flight title for 30 years.
They amassed 99 points, winning 32 of their 38 league games, to finish 18 points clear of previous champions Manchester City.
Klopp’s side went unbeaten in their first 27 games, winning 26, and set a record for earliest title win by sealing their triumph with seven rounds of matches remaining.
Klopp beat Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder to the award.
Last month, he was named League Managers’ Association manager of the year.
Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold, 21, won the Premier League’s young player award on Friday.
The winners of the Premier League awards were decided after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts.
The Reds won three trophies in total over the course of their latest campaign, with the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup secured towards the end of 2019 to cap a remarkable year which also included Champions League success.
Klopp could yet win the fifth trophy of his reign at Anfield when he takes his side to Wembley to face Arsenal in the Community Shield final on August 29.
🏆 Congratulations to Jürgen Klopp
