Having guided Liverpool to win its first Premier League title in 30-years, Jurgen Klopp has been named the League Managers’ Association Manager of the Year.

The German manager also led the Reds to conquer Europe [winning the Champions League] and going on to be crowned world champions.

Speaking to Sky Sports, former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson applauded Jurgen Klopp for his exploits since assuming the reigns at Anfield.

“Jurgen, fantastic,” Ferguson said on Sky Sports.

“We speak about Leeds spending 16 years in the Championship, but Liverpool 30 years since winning that league, incredible.

“You thoroughly deserved it. The performance level of your team was outstanding. Your personality runs right throughout the whole club. It was a marvellous performance.

“I’ll forgive you for waking me up at 3.30am to tell me you have won the league! Thank you, but anyway, you thoroughly deserved it. Well done.”
