In his latest press conference, the German spoke about his final days at Anfield.

After the end of the season against Wolverhampton on Sunday, the Liverpool era is over.

For eight and a half years, Jurgen Klopp has been Liverpool's manager, and the man who led the Reds to their first Premier League title in the 2019/20 season is clear on one thing:

– There were some great moments, so we don't have to pretend it's not special, says the German.

The 54-year-old also says he is unable to express in words the relationship and love for Liverpool fans:

– LFC TV made me read fan letters yesterday. One of them made me cry. “Football changes lives and I know that,” says Klopp.

This season, Klopp will have to settle for the League Cup as the only trophy on the bye tour. In the Europa League, there was an exit to Atalanta in the quarter-finals and in the FA Cup they were beaten by arch rivals Manchester United.

Things haven't gone well in the league in recent months either – and the red-shirted side disappeared from the league title battle after several poor results in April.

The German seemed more relaxed than usual in recent weeks:

In addition, there have been two Champions League final defeats – and in both 2018/19 and 2021/22, they were one point behind series winners City.

– I'm totally fine with that. I know we could have won more titles, but I can't change that. We could have won with less too, Klopp muses before continuing:

-I wouldn't be as happy as I am now if I thought I could have done more at this job.

The 56-year-old says he bid farewell to the players on Thursday with a joint dinner.

-It was the most intense week of my life. I had a lot of emotional moments yesterday. It's never good to say goodbye and it will be difficult, Klopp sums up Sunday's final against Wolves.
