- Jurgen Klopp has been shortlisted for the UEFA coach of the year award
- The German helped Liverpool to win the 2019/20 Premier League title
- Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick is also in contention for the award
Jurgen Klopp has been shortlisted among the three coaches who will fight for the UEFA manager of the year award.
The German professional tactician helped Liverpool to win the Premier League title for the 2019/20 season after 30 years that they have waited.
Last two seasons, Liverpool also fought for the Premier League title, but the Reds lost the crown to rivals Manchester City on the last day of the season.
However, Jurgen Klopp and his men did themselves lots of good as they won the UEFA Champions League beating fellow Premier League side Tottenham in the final.
Jurgen Klopp will now go into competition for the prestigious award alongside Bayern Munich's boss, Hansi Flick and RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann.
Hansi Flick and his wards were in incredible form last season in Germany winning the Bundesliga and also the Champions League.
They recorded a big win over Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinal before beating Lyon in the semifinal and also Paris-Saint-Germain in the final.
Meanwhile, 80 coaches of the clubs that participated in the group stages of the 2019/20 Champions League and Europa League selected the final three shortlist.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Bayern Munich who are the champions of Germany are reportedly ready to rekindle their interest in the signing of Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi.
During the January 2020 transfer window, Bayern Munich offered Chelsea a deal for them to sign Hudson-Odoi, but the Stamford Bridge chiefs rejected the offer.
The 19-year-old England international eventually signed a new five-year deal at Chelsea thereby committing his future to the Blues.
The report added that there has been contact from the recently-crowned Champions League winners to Hudson-Odoi's representatives.
They have not yet made official contact with Chelsea but would be interested in an initial loan move with an option to buy.
Bayern Munich must, however, be aware that Italian champions Juventus are also interested in Callum Hudson-Odoi.
