After leading Liverpool to the Premier League title for the first time in 30 years, Jurgen Klopp has been named on a final shortlist of four for the Manager of the Season award for 2019/2020.

Frank Lampard, Brendan Rodgers and Chris Wilder are the other names who are all in contention for this prize.

Votes from the public will be combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide the winner.

The German delivered Liverpool's first-ever Premier League title in some style, with the Reds becoming the first team to cement top spot with seven matches to spare.

Klopp's five Barclays Manager of the Month awards in 2019/20 established another new high in the competition, while his side equalled other records by winning 18 matches in a row, securing 32 victories overall and amassing 55 points from a possible 57 at home.
