Famed German outlet Kicker organised a survey to select the best managers who are currently reigning in the world of football. They questioned 250 Bundesliga players on a multitude of matters along with their choice of best manager in Europe.
- 66 % (165 out of 250) voted for Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp.
- 18.4 % of votes went to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola (2nd)
The Merseyside club soared in the Premier League and clinched the Champions League this season and a big part of that was the guy at the helm, Jurgen Klopp.
Ajax manager Erik ten Hag and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino picked up 3.6% and 3.2% respectively in the all-German survey.
Ajax were brilliant in the Champions League as they demolished two of the biggest European football clubs in Real Madrid and Juventus. But they lost out in the semi-finals to Pochettino-led Tottenham.
However, Tottenham too was crushed by Klopp and his Merseyside army in the finals as the Reds became the champions of Europe.
Thus it’s only fitting that the Liverpool manager be crowned as the best manager of the season.
