Jurgen Klopp’s announcement of his departure from Liverpool at the end of the 2023-24 season has solidified his status as one of the greatest managers in Premier League history.
With his legacy already secured, Klopp’s decision to leave Anfield has left fans and pundits wondering where he ranks among the league’s greatest coaches in terms of points per game.
Since taking charge of Liverpool in October 2015, Klopp has accumulated an impressive points tally. With 199 wins from 317 games in the Premier League, Liverpool has amassed 671 points under Klopp’s leadership, averaging 2.11 points per game.
Among managers who have taken charge of 50 or more games, only Guardiola and Sir Alex Ferguson have registered a better points-per-game record. Klopp’s points-per-game average surpasses that of esteemed managers such as Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, and Antonio Conte.
In fact, there is even a possibility that Klopp could leave the English game with a better Premier League points-per-game record than Ferguson, a legendary figure in English football.
As it stands, Klopp ranks third in the Premier League’s top 10 coaches by points per game. Pep Guardiola holds the top spot with an impressive average of 2.33 points per game, followed by Sir Alex Ferguson with 2.16 points per game.
Klopp’s average of 2.11 points per game places him comfortably in third place. The rankings further highlight Klopp’s exceptional managerial abilities and his impact on Liverpool’s success in recent years.
His high-energy, attacking style of play has endeared him to fans and has seen Liverpool become a dominant force in English football. With Liverpool currently sitting at the top of the Premier League once again, Klopp will undoubtedly be determined to end his tenure with the club on a high note.
As he prepares to depart Anfield, Klopp’s impressive points-per-game record solidifies his place among the Premier League’s greatest coaches and ensures that his legacy will be remembered for years to come.
