Jürgen Klopp makes Premier League managerial history

February 8, 2020

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has broken the record for most Premier League Manager of the Month awards in a single season.

The German has now won the award an unprecedented five times this term, surpassing the record set by Pep Guardiola in 2017/18.

He wins the January prize after overseeing the Reds victories over the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United and his side ended the month 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Guardiola, Ralph Hasenhüttl and Nigel Pearson were the other three nominees.

Klopp has now won a total of eight Premier League Manager of the Month awards in his career, moving him level with Martin O’Neill and Harry Redknapp.

Only Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and David Moyes have now won more than the 52-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager.
