Jurgen Klopp was awarded the Freedom of the City of Liverpool on Wednesday in acknowledgment of his success at Anfield since his appointment as manager in 2015.

Liverpool have won seven trophies under his stewardship, including the Champions League in 2019 and their Premier League title.

Klopp received the city's highest civic honour at a ceremony at the Town Hall after being nominated in July.

In attendance were members of Klopp's coaching staff, as well as Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish and the city's mayor.

Klopp's side have endured a below-par start to this campaign and are already 15 points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, though they have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Reds will play three more times before the World Cup, with Premier League fixtures against Tottenham and Southampton either side of a third-round EFL Cup tie with Derby County.
