EPL: Klopp wins Manager of the Year ahead of Guardiola


Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League manager of the 2021/2022 season.

The German also won the Sir Alex Ferguson trophy for the LMA manager of the year.

Klopp’s men took the title race down to the wire, racking up 92 points, but finished in second place behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Accepting his award, Klopp said: “It is a great honour and it was an insane season. The last matchday when only two games were meaningless and, in the rest, we all played for absolutely everything.

“It was a bit nervy, it wasn’t the best outcome for us, but we are already over it. And when you win a prize like this you are either a genius, or you have the best coaching staff in the world – I am here with four of my coaching staff, and they know how much I appreciate them.”

Liverpool can still clinch the Treble, as they face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday.
