53-year-old Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League Manager of the Season after guiding his club Liverpool to their first league title in three decades, beating Chelsea’s Frank Lampard, Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder.
Recall that Klopp had coached Liverpool to the Champions League trophy in the 2018/19 season and won the League Manager’s Association manager of the year award in July.
Klopp again bagged the Premier League award, after the votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts and cumulated. Liverpool garnered 99 points, winning 32 of their 38 league games, to finish 18 points clear of Manchester City.
