In the Reds sixth winning title under the Champions League, Liverpool’s beloved manager, Jurgen Klopp has been bestowed with the title FIFA Men’s Coach of the Year. Klopp joined Liverpool back in 2015 where his first wining title was the Champions League title, a year prior, the manager was able to win the same title leaving Real Madrid at a loss.
Other nominees for the award included Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham manager whom Klopp fairly beat 2-0 back in June to claim the Champions League final victory. Another nominee for the award was Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola who made it to the top three nominees but failed to win due to unprecedented domestic treble in England.
In his superb leadership and mentorship of the Liverpool team’s performance, Klopp went the extra mile and announced his effort to join the Common Goal campaign. The charitable project was launched by Juan Mata, star midfielder from Manchester United which aims to provide a better quality of life in impoverished areas through the sport of football. Members of the charity donate 1% of their income to active projects in all continents Common Goal is present in.
