Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been shortlisted for #TheBest FIFA’s Men’s Coach award for 2019, alongside fellow Premier League managers Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino.
The German guided the Reds to their sixth Champions League triumph, as well as registering the third-highest ever points tally in PL history.

Other nominees for the award include Algeria’s Djamel Belmadi, Brazil’s Tite, Portugal’s Fernando Santos, who guided their nations to international trophies this year, and Didier Deschamps, Marcelo Gallardo, Ricardo Gareca and Erik ten Hag.

Klopp turned Liverpool into a force to be reckoned with; last season, in the Premier League, we suffered the least amount of losses – 1 – and that was at the hands of the eventual champions.
We may have went out of the domestic trophies early on, but I’m sure seeing Jordan Henderson lifting the Champions League trophy, decorated with red ribbons, above his head more than made up for that!
