Liverpool FC coach, Jurgen Klopp, has been awarded the English Premier League Manager for the 2021/2022 Season.
The 54 years old manager was awarded and announced on Tuesday, after his side won the FA Cup and English League Cup, despite finishing 1 point behind EPL champions, Manchester City.
His side were also 14 points away from Manchester City but they had a 19-game unbeaten run to end the season, with 10 wins on the spin from January to April helping them close the gap.
The announcement was posted on twitter on Tuesday evening at the EPL official twitter page. Reflecting on the Premier League season while accepting his 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 a bit nervy, it wasn’t the best outcome for us, but we are already over it. And when you win a prize like this you are either a genius, or you have the best coaching staff in the world – I am here with four of my coaching staff, and they know how much I appreciate them.”
Your @BarclaysFooty Manager of the Season…
