Liverpool are really good and a lot of that has to be down to the leadership of one Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool fans of a certain age will likely find Klopp’s hiring as a real watershed moment in the club’s history. Considering that the immediate period of pre-Klopp Liverpool experience includes the Hodgepocalypse and The Slip, to call it a defining hire feels like an understatement.
After Liverpool dispatched with the festive fixtures and hauled in one more trophy to close out 2019, the Reds under Jurgen Klopp opened up a 13 point lead at the top of the table with a match in hand. It was a mazy run of matches that included trips to Salzburg and Qatar, but Klopp was able to guide his crew of Mentality Giants through it all.
And for that, Jurgen Klopp gets to take home the Premier League Manager of the Month for December. It’s an achievement that’s obviously warranted. It’s also the 5th time this season, and third time in a row, that Jurgen Klopp has won this particular accolade. In fact, he’s won every single such award excepting for the month of October.
Related, after winning the fan-voted Standard Charter Player of the Month, Trent Alexander-Arnold also was announced as winning the Premier League Player of the Month for December. Which, besides being another terrific bauble for the young superstar’s collection, is an affirmation of the great work being done at Anfield with this particular group of players.
