Jurgen Klopp is quickly becoming a Liverpool legend during his time on Merseyside.
The 52-year-old German boss has exceeded all expectations since joining the club in 2014.
During 2019 he has taken things to the next level as the Reds manager, picking up trophies, personal awards, a new contract and setting us up for a massive year in 2020.
Here is a look back at everything he has accomplished over the past 12 months.
Jurgen Klopp has finally put some silverware in the cabinet as Liverpool boss. It really doesn’t get any bigger than what he achieved in June, as the Reds lifted a sixth European Cup. The German didn’t stop at that though.
In August he secured the European Super Cup after Liverpool beat Chelsea in Istanbul. Lastly the Reds cemented our place as the worlds best club by winning the Club World Cup by beating Flamengo last week.
Liverpool fans are no longer the only people who see just how great Klopp is. The German has earned a ton of personal awards throughout the year.
In 2019 alone he has earned four Premier League manager of the month awards. During the annual awards season he picked up German manager of the year and was also recognised by FIFA as the world’s best coach.
Many had feared Klopp was planning a sabbatical when his Liverpool deal was due to expire in 2022. However earlier this month he put an end to speculation by signing a contract extension through to 2024.
This is the best piece of business any Reds fan could ask for and we can now look forward to four more full seasons with Klopp as our manager.
Set to end league title drought?
Last season Liverpool came ridiculously close to claiming the Premier League title. After amassing a club record points haul of 97 points, we were desperately unlucky to miss out on England’s top prize. However, this season we have come back stronger and appear to be on our way to a first league title in 30 years.
The Reds currently boast a 10-point gap over second -placed Leicester City and a 14-point gap over current Champions Manchester City. Klopp has led the club to 34 unbeaten games in the Premier League and laid the groundwork that should see us named champions in 2020.
