Jurgen Klopp Named LMA Manager of the Year

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp has been named the League Managers Association manager of the year.

Klopp's team won the Premier League - the Reds' first English top-flight title for 30 years.

Emma Hayes recently won the FA Women's Super League manager of the year award after leading Chelsea to the title.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa won the Championship award after guiding his side to the title and promotion to the Premier League.

In announcing Klopp as the winner on Sky Sports, former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "It was thoroughly deserved.

"The performance level of your team was outstanding. Your personality runs right through the whole club.

"I'll forgive you for ringing me at half past three in the morning to tell me you had won the league - thank you!"

Klopp's side amassed 99 points as they won the Premier League title by 18 points from second-placed Manchester City.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be named the winner of the League Managers Association manager of the year award, for this wonderful Sir Alex Ferguson trophy, named after a man that I admire so much," said Klopp.

"It feels extra special to win this award because it is voted for by my fellow managers.

"It's an honour to be in the company of so many managers who have been named as LMA manager of the year before, including of course Liverpool managers like Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, Sir Kenny Dalglish and, in recent years, Brendan Rodgers."

 

Really no surprise and 100% deserved.

The only other manager that could come close was Chris Wilder.

Did Pep win it last year? He should have, if he didn't. It's hard to not give it to a manager that's put up as many points as we have right now - immense season.

Just had a look at the previous winners.

Fergie obviously clearly at the top.

Moyes has won it 3 times though xD 

Wenger the same amount of times as Coppell...

Before Moyes went to Manchester United, he had such a strong side and did some great things. 

I was one that thought he was the perfect successor to Fergie, although that obvious didn't pan out
