The FIFA Best Awards have named Jurgen Klopp on their final shortlist for coach of the year, and Liverpool fans believe their manager deserves to win.
Klopp guided Liverpool to their highest ever Premier League points total, as well as their first Champions League title since 2005, and in doing so became only the third foreign manager of an English club to achieve such a feat.
When he arrived in 2015, Liverpool had fallen out of Champions League qualification so the turnaround under the German has been notable, but he faces competition from Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino, so it will be far from straightforward.
Guardiola led Manchester City to the domestic treble, the first time that has been achieved in England, whilst Pochettino miraculously took Spurs to the Champions League final despite a playing budget that is considerably less than their rivals.
Despite that, for Liverpool fans there is only one man who should win it, as their reactions below show.
Name written all over it. ?
