Jürgen Klopp has been named the Premier League’s Manager of the Season for 2021-22.

The Liverpool boss received the award at a League Managers Association event on Tuesday night, in recognition of an outstanding campaign for his team.

Klopp guided the Reds to triumphs in the Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup this term, while they narrowly missed out on the Premier League title having accumulated 92 points in the top flight.

Liverpool are also set to contest a third Champions League final in five years, with Real Madrid their opponents in Paris on Saturday.

Klopp emerged as the Manager of the Season winner from a shortlist that also included Thomas Frank (Brentford), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Eddie Howe (Newcastle United) and Patrick Vieira (Crystal Palace).

It is the second time he has won the honour, which he previously claimed in 2019-20.
