Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has emerged the League Managers’ Association Premier League Manager of the Year for the 2021/2022 EPL season.
According to AFP, Klopp collected the award at the LMA Awards dinner in London and affirmed that it was a great honour to win the award adding that “it was an insane season. It was not the best outcome for us, but we are already over it.”
The German tactitian also paid special tribute to his backroom staff.
“When you win a prize like this, you are either a genius or you have the best coaching staff in the world and I am here with all of my coaching staff, they know how much I appreciate them.”
In addition to the Premier League Manager of the Year Award, Klopp also won the Sir Alex Ferguson Trophy, named in honour of the celebrated former Manchester United boss, which is voted for by the full membership of managers across all the divisions in English senior football.
“This being voted for by my colleagues is obviously the most important prize you can get. I don’t believe in individual prizes in football generally, it is a team sport and I would be nothing without these boys there. It is all about what we can do together and what we did together.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool will look to add to their trophy collection this season in the final of the Champions League on Saturday.
