Liverpool have been shortlisted among the nominees in the Team of the Year and Comeback of the Year categories in the Laureus World Sports Awards. Jurgen Klopp’s side – who won the Champions League in 2019 – are on a shortlist of six for Team of the Year.
The Reds are in the Comeback of the Year category for overturning a 3-0 Champions League semi-final first-leg deficit by beating Barcelona 4-0. Andy Murray is a Comeback of the Year nominee after returning from surgery.
Britain’s Murray broke down in tears after winning his first singles title since career-saving hip surgery by beating Stan Wawrinka at the European Open in October.
Lewis Hamilton is listed in the Sportsman of the Year category as a result of winning his sixth Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship, while Tiger Woods is also named in the category after winning his 15th major title at the Masters in April.
