Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has won the Great Coaching Moment of the Year award for 2019 for an iconic moment from last season with the Reds.
I’m sure you’ll all remember the scenes after our now-famous comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League – the whole team singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” with the Kop end.
I mean – I get a little emotional even looking at it now, I’m not going to lie.
The public has deemed Jürgen's coaching moment in the semi-final of the Champions League, where he brought together supporters & players in a rendition of #YNWA, as worthy of the coveted gong

The award celebrates moments that distinguished a coach for their focus on a game or result, or their human approach to guiding teams and athletes.
On winning the award, Klopp told the club’s official website: “It is a huge honour to be recognised by UK Coaching for this award and I’d like to thank everyone who voted, especially our fans who played their part in what was an incredible performance and unforgettable night at Anfield back in May.
“When you are a coach there is nothing more rewarding and powerful than seeing what can be achieved when everyone – the players, the coaching team and the fans – pull together. It was without doubt one of the proudest nights of my coaching career.”
It was an incredible moment, and it showed the world that we’re not just your average team – we are Liverpool, and this is what we do.
We’re incredibly passionate fans, and several players being reduced to tears by singing our anthem with us just goes to show how special it is for the players to be a part of it.
They make our dreams come true – it’s so good to know we can also have a similar impact on them.
