Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been named the League Managers’ Association Premier League Manager of the Year for a second time.
It’s been a memorable season for the Reds, who have won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, while they also finished a point behind Manchester City in the Premier League on a dramatic final day.
Klopp collected his accolade at the LMA Awards dinner in London on Tuesday evening.
Speaking on stage after receiving his LMA award, Klopp said: “It is a great honour and it was an insane season.
“The last matchday when only two games were meaningless and in the rest, we all played for absolutely everything.
“It was not the best outcome for us, but we are already over it.
“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.”
Klopp also collected the Sir Alex Ferguson Trophy, which is voted for by the full membership of managers across all the divisions.
Liverpool will aim to add the Champions League trophy to their haul when they meet Real Madrid in Paris on Saturday, which you can listen to live on talkSPORT.
“This being voted for by my colleagues is obviously most important prize you can get,” Klopp said.
“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.”
