Jurgen Klopp wins FIFA’s The Best men’s manager

Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp exchange mighty compliments

Irish U21 goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher tipped to make senior Liverpool debut in Carabao Cup clash

The German won the award ahead of rivals Pochettino and Pep Guardiola, who masterminded a domestic quadruple at Manchester City.

Klopp, who can't be considered anything less than a hero at Anfield, also secured the UEFA Super Cup and looks on course for another Premier League challenge with six wins out of six. Back then, a new team was winning the title every year, and clubs like Chelsea and even Manchester City were going through fluctuations in their league positions.

Mauricio Pochettino himself did a stunning job with Tottenham Hotspur, somehow guiding Spurs to the UCL final to play Liverpool, but fell one step short in the end.

Former top flight foward Crooks was impressed with how Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian fared in the game, lauding the Spaniard's first-half performance, and feels it is a bad thing for rest of the league when the Reds win games without playing well.

Jurgen Klopp has been named the top manager in the world for the past season at FIFA's The Best awards ceremony on Monday in Milan, Italy.

It's possible that the 2 managers are choosing to praise the other to avoid looking conceited, or filling their players with potentially fatal over-confidence, but it's far more likely that they genuinely believe what they are saying, and have the utmost respect for each other.

Liverpool now sit on top of the league table with 18 points, having won all six of their games so far, and boast a five-point advantage over Manchester City.
