Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp has been selected as the League Managers’ Association Manager of the Year. His team won the Premier League recently for the first time in the history of 30 years.
While announcing the name on Sky Sports, former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said that Klopp deserves the title and the performance of his team was outstanding. He also made a little joke saying that he will forgive Klopp for calling him at half-past three in the morning to share the news about winning the league.
Klopp felt delighted to be named for the title and said that he admires Sir Ferguson a lot and is very happy to have the title of his Association.
He added that Sir Ferguson was the first British manager he met and it was very special for him. He had never thought that he will get the trophy which is named after Sir Ferguson.
He said that it was an honor to be a part of the names of the managers who have been awarded as LMA manager of the year which includes Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Sir Kenny Dalglish, Joe Fagan, and Brendan Rodgers.
He also said that he was there on behalf of his coaches who make them a real bunch of football brains and all the efforts that he has done for Liverpool was impossible without their input. He mentioned Peter Krawietz, Pep Lijnders, John Achterberg, Jack Robinson, and Vitor Matos saying that it is a pleasure to work with them.
The deserving ones get what he deserves and appreciate others for his deeds. The way Klopp has worked for the team shows his simplicity and dedication.
