Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sets milestone achievement after 3-1 Europa League win

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp set a unique record on Thursday night, as the Reds beat Austrian side LASK 3-1 in the Europa League.

The group stage win saw Klopp reach 50 wins in Europe with Liverpool, becoming the first manager in the club’s history to reach the milestone. Klopp has therefore now surpassed 2005 Champions League-winning boss Rafael Benitez, who has 49 wins on his record. 

Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah all scored in the second half of the game against LASK to hand Liverpool the victory, as they fought back from 1-0 down.

Klopp, though, isn’t too concerned with the record, suggesting his main focus is progressing from the Europa League group stages, with games against Toulouse and Union Saint-Gilloise still to come.
