Klopp named May's Barclays Manager of the Month

30 May 2021

German recognised after leading Liverpool to a perfect run that earned them a top-four finish

Jurgen Klopp has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month for May.

Klopp receives the prize after overseeing five straight victories as Liverpool made a late surge into the UEFA Champions League spots and secured a third-place finish on the final day.

The month began with a 2-0 home win over Southampton, followed by a 4-2 success at Manchester United.

Goalkeeper Alisson then headed in a last-gasp winner at West Bromwich Albion before the Reds earned another away victory over Burnley and beat Crystal Palace in their last match.

Klopp has now won nine Barclays monthly awards, moving level with Manchester City's Pep Guardiola.

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

Klopp beat Moyes to May's accolade, along with their fellow nominees Mikel Arteta and Marcelo Bielsa.
