Jürgen Klopp earns century win at Anfield over Nottingham Forest

The 55-year-old German tactician joins Liverpool legends Bob Paisley, Bill Shankly, and Tom Watson in a list of great who have all earned 100 wins at the iconic ground

Beloved Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp continues to add to his legacy on Merseyside after a 3-2 win at Anfield against struggling Nottingham Forest that sees him join illustrious managerial company after overseeing his 100th win on the red half of Stanley Park.

Klopp became just the fourth Liverpool manager to ever preside over a century mark in the win column at the legendary ground, joining club greats Bob Paisley, Bill Shankly, and Tom Watson as the only other men to have achieved the same feat.

During a season where Liverpool has been well off the boil on all fronts and is at serious risk of missing out on Champions League football as they sit sixth in the table despite the win over Steve Cooper’s relegation-threatened Forest outfit, there is still plenty to smile about for the 55-year-old German tactician who has ingrained himself on the very fabric of the historic English club.

With the business end of the 2022-23 season coming thick and fast, Klopp will face one of the sternest tests of his fantastic stint in the northwest of England if the club is to bounce back in their remaining seven league fixtures and recover a top four place.

Sitting just one point adrift of Unai Emery’s sixth-sitting Aston Villa and a further three points behind Tottenham in fifth, only six points separate Liverpool from Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United in fourth, with the Reds wholly focused on league play after all other avenues for silverware have ended in failure.

Still, many supporters will look to his achievements across over eight years in charge of the storied club as proof positive that anything is possible.
