Jurgen Klopp who was awarded the accolade on Thursday night, expressed shock saying, “I am shocked. I was sitting here because I thought last year I won it. I am here with my players. Thank you very much, wow”

“I have so many people to thank and most of all my coaches. If I had known we’d won it my coaches would be here with me. What we did in the last year is about these boys.
We didn’t dream 30 years but we dream already for a few years. It was absolutely exceptional and we all had a special year in an unfortunately not so positive way but Liverpool fans at least we could make some highlights in a tricky period. I had no idea how it would feel and it felt absolutely overwhelming”.
Jurgen Klopp edged out Hansi Flick who everyone thought was going to be the winner after he led Bayern to a hat trick of trophies, including the Champions League.
Another candidate that earned rave reviews was Marcos Biesla, who had guided Leeds to the English Premier League.
Though both coaches had outstanding feats, but this is Klopp’s night.
