Klopp beats Guardiola to EPL Manager of the Season award

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has been crowned the 2021/22 Premier League Manager of the Season.

Klopp led The Reds to the Carabao Cup and FA Cup success before leading the Anfield side to one of the best title races in history.

The title race went down to the final minutes of the campaign as his Liverpool team pushed Manchester City all the way.

"They were 14 points behind Man City in January but won 16 and drew two of their remaining matches to finish on 92 points, losing fewer matches, two, than any other team across the campaign.

Indeed, in beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 on Sunday, Liverpool went the entire season unbeaten at home, doing so for a joint-record fifth time in the Premier League," a statement on the EPL's website said,

Klopp wins the award for a second time, having also claimed it in 2019/20 after steering Liverpool to their first Premier League title.

"The 54-year-old won after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide who would top a five-man shortlist," the statement added.

The German will now hope to end the campaign on a high when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday with a chance to claim a treble, adding to their EFL Cup and FA Cup wins this season.
