The 10 Best Managers In World Football In 2020 Have Been Named
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been named the best manager in world football ahead of Manchester City's Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich's Hans-Dieter Flick.
The 53-year-old German left Borussia Dortmund in 2015 to sign for Liverpool and has been instrumental in the Reds' success.
Klopp won the Champions League trophy in 2019 before ending Liverpool's long wait for the Premier League title in 2020.
And now ESPN ranked the Reds boss at the top of its list, saying that Klopp's place is 'assured in the pantheon of Liverpool greats.'
The publication added: "Klopp's legacy at Liverpool is grand enough, but a pair of his glasses have been buried in a time capsule at the club's new training ground to further anchor him on Merseyside."
Flick finished behind Klopp in the rankings, despite a brilliant season with defending champions Bayern Munich.
The 55-year-old, who succeeded Niko Kovac, captured the Bundesliga title and German Cup with Bayern Munich last season during their treble-winning season.
And Flick's Bayern Munich side thumped Barcelona 8-2 in the Champions League quarter-finals en route to winning Europe's elite club competition.
Guardiola and Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini finished third and fourth respectively, while RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann came fifth in the rankings.
