Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been nominated for the UEFA Men's Coach of the Year award.

The German helped guide the Reds to their first league title in 30-years last season, helping his team to a club-record 99 points in the top-flight.

Klopp is the reigning Best FIFA Men’s Coach and also collected the League Managers Association's Manager of the Year award back in July.

The Liverpool boss is up against Hansi Flick of Bayern Munich and Julian Nagelsmann of RB Leipzig on an all-German, three-man shortlist for the gong.

The trio were selected by a panel of the 80 coaches of the clubs that participated in the group stages of the 2019/20 Champions League and Europa League tournaments.

The way the voting works is that each member of the panel chose their top three coaches, with the first-placed nominees receiving five points, the second three and the third one.
