Jürgen Klopp has been named Team Manager of the Year by the English Premier League for the second time. The Liverpool coach prevailed in the final vote against Pep Guardiola from champions Manchester City, Eddie Howe (Newcastle United), Patrick Vieira (Crystal Palace) and Thomas Frank (FC Brentford).
When choosing the Premier League, the votes of fans and the assessment of a jury of experts are counted. Klopp had won the FA Cup and the League Cup with Liverpool, but the Reds ended up just a point behind champions City in the league. On Saturday, the Klopp protégés will also play in St. Denis in the Champions League final against the Spanish record champions Real Madrid.
Klopp had already been named Team Manager of the Year in 2019/20 after Liverpool’s first championship in 30 years.
