Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has beaten the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Pep Guardiola to be named the best manager in world football right now.
The 53-year-old German has played an instrumental role in transforming the Reds into a formidable title-winning side since he arrived at Anfield in 2015.
Klopp led Liverpool to the Champions League final in 2018 and saw his side lose 3-1 to Real Madrid.
But the former Borussia Dortmund head coach guided his side to the Champions League trophy the following year.
Klopp's Liverpool side pushed Manchester City to the final day of the 2018-19 season in the hopes of capturing the Premier League title.
While the Reds fell short in that campaign, the Liverpool boss ended the club's long league title drought last season by guiding his side to the trophy.
The Daily Star named Klopp top of the pile for the best manager currently active in world football.
Falling behind Klopp in second place was Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini, while Real Madrid manager Zidane took home the third spot on the list.
