Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp has been named Premier League manager of the season at a glittering ceremony in London.
Liverpool took the title race down to the wire, racking up 92 points and finishing runners-up to Premier League champions Manchester City by a single point, as they went closer to winning the Quadruple than any other English side in history.
Klopp’s men can still clinch a cup treble if they beat Real Madrid in Paris on Saturday and add the Champions League to this season’s FA Cup and League Cup successes.
The announcement of the prestigious accolade for Klopp was made at the 30th annual League Managers Association (LMA) Awards dinner.
Meanwhile, QPR duo Chris Ramsey and Manisha Tailor beat off competition from England manager Gareth Southgate and Liverpool boss Klopp to be named joint winners of the Kick It Out and Sky Inclusion Champion Award.
UEFA A Licence coach Tailor is assistant head of academy coaching to Ramsey at QPR. Tailor is the only South Asian woman ever to hold such a role in English football history.
Brighton Women’s manager Hope Powell and Leatherhead FC player and LGBTQ+ role model Luke Tuffs were also in the running for the award, which recognises an individual who has used their position of leadership to combat discrimination and promote inclusion.
Liverpool complete deal for Fulham’s Carvalho
Liverpool have completed the signing of Fabio Carvalho from Fulham after initially missing out on the winger on Deadline Day in January.
Carvalho’s current deal expires this summer and Fulham are entitled to compensation set by a tribunal should the teenager join another English side, while continental clubs would only need to pay a nominal fee.
The 19-year-old moves to Anfield on a five-year contract on July 1.
Carvalho already underwent a medical with Fulham’s permission ahead of a transfer which sees Liverpool pay Fulham £5m plus add-ons.
Liverpool’s move for Carvalho in January fell through after the Premier League side ran out of time to complete the deal on Deadline Day.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were set to sign Carvalho and loan him back to Fulham for the rest of the season, but he remained with the Championship leaders anyway with no deal having been agreed.
Carvalho has scored 11 goals in 38 appearances for Marco Silva’s side this season, finding the net in Fulham’s 4-1 FA Cup defeat to Manchester City in February.
In 2021, Liverpool were ordered to pay Fulham a record compensation fee for a 16-year-old following Harvey Elliott’s transfer to the club in 2019. Once add-on clauses are met, Fulham could receive a fee in the region of £4m and have also inserted a substantial sell-on clause, understood to be 20 per cent.
