Liverpool boss wins back-to-back awards after continuing his team’s perfect start to the season through September 2019.
Jurgen Klopp has won the Barclays Manager of the Month award for the second month in a row.
Klopp claims September’s prize after continuing Liverpool’s perfect start to the Premier League season and adding to his August accolade.
The German’s Premier League leaders won all three matches, with a home victory over Newcastle United followed by away triumphs at Chelsea and Sheffield United, which took the Reds’ winning streak in the competition to 16 matches.
The sequence of straight victories was then extended to 17 against Leicester City last weekend, giving Klopp’s side the chance to equal Manchester City’s competition record of 18 when they visit Manchester United after the international break.
The 52-year-old has now claimed the award for a fifth time.
He topped a four-man shortlist after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts, beating Eddie Howe, Frank Lampard and Brendan Rodgers.
