NewsJürgen Klopp claims record 50th win in European competition with LFC
Jürgen Klopp achieved a first in Liverpool FC history with his 50th win in European competition as Reds manager on Thursday night.
Klopp’s men came from a goal down to defeat LASK 3-1 at Raiffeisen Arena in their opening fixture of the Europa League group stage.
Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and substitute Mohamed Salah delivered the goals to clinch a comeback victory in Linz, Austria.
The result brought up a half-century of European wins for Klopp since he took the reins in October 2015 - the first Reds boss ever to reach that milestone.
The German, who has taken the club to three Champions League finals and one Europa League showpiece so far, moved clear of Rafael Benitez (49) in that ranking.
