Klopp has deservedly been recognised for his impact in guiding Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years as well as securing a club-record tally of 99 points in the English top-flight.

The Liverpool boss is the reigning FIFA Coach of the Year after inspiring the Reds to a sixth European Cup triumph last year while he most recently won the League Managers Association’s Manager of the Year award back in July.

The three selected managers were chosen by a panel of 80 coaches that participated in the group stages of the 2019/20 Champions League and Europa League tournaments.

The winner of the award is scheduled to be announced during the 2020/21 Champions League ceremony in Nyon on October 1.

What RTK has to say

Deserved is an understatement.

Liverpool’s irreplaceable head-coach has successfully taken the club back to the summit of European football with the use of a sustainable club model that has also seen the club’s revenue break record profits.

His impact on the Reds is undisputed and his status in the world of football has had a direct effect in some of the world’s most coveted players such as Thiago Alcantara joining the club.

Klopp is arguably the club’s most transformative figure since Bill Shankly took charge of the Reds in 1959.

In just five short years, he has completely altered the perception of the club and has harnessed the love of all supporters successfully taking a Liverpool fan-base from doubters into believers to sky-high achievers.
