Liverpool manager wins January prize and breaks Pep Guardiola record for most in a single season

Jurgen Klopp has broken the record for the most Barclays Manager of the Month awards in a single season.

Klopp has been voted the winner of the January 2020 prize and has now won the award an unprecedented five times this term, surpassing Pep Guardiola's four from 2017/18.

The German triumphed thanks to yet another flawless month as Liverpool extended their win streak to 15 matches. 

Victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United were among their five in January as Klopp's men increased their lead at the top of the table to 19 points, before extending it to 22 in Matchweek 25.

Only Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and David Moyes have picked up more in the competition's history. 

Klopp was decided as the winner after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts.

He beat fellow nominees Guardiola, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Nigel Pearson.
