German coach Jürgen Klopp ended his time as Liverpool manager with a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton at Anfield thanks to goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Jarrell Quansah.

This separation came after eight-and-a-half seasons at Liverpool, during which the German coach achieved great success by winning eight trophies, including the UEFA Champions League.

Jürgen Klopp emphasised that he is happy to have been part of Liverpool’s history and is proud of his journey with the club.

“I thought it might be more sad in the beginning but when people realise, it’s all good. Honestly,” he said addressing the crowd.

“If I carry on, these guys and others will say ‘he’s been there too long.’ You have to be the spark. I love the squad. There is so much potential. They will make changes here and there.

“I’m sure you will all agree there does not need an overhaul. We finished third. We were ahead of schedule. It’s a statement in this strong league and I’m absolutely fine with that.

“There has been such a long lead-up to this day and it was really intense. I had my bad moments as well but thank God not today. I’m just thankful for what happens. When you are in it, you forget sometimes how great it is. You take it for granted. Now I stand here, I’m just so happy I’m a part of the club’s history. It’s wonderful.

“It’s so super special that it’s difficult to explain. We live in a world where it’s all about results for others. We learn that not getting absolutely everything is fine. It’s such a massive lesson for life. It’s not about that, it’s about the journey and the togetherness and that’s what I love. Things might not always go perfect.

“The other clubs, with the most money and the best managers, they win it. We didn’t have the best manager and never had the best team but for a while we played the best football and I love that. We are a rock solid club and don’t overspend. People say ‘you didn’t spend enough’. What the heck do you want? I just understand this from the Liverpool way.”
