Jürgen Klopp speaks on emotions of final Liverpool match after nine-year tenure

Speaking at AXA Training Centre for the final time, Jürgen Klopp admitted that Sunday’s match against Wolves will be a challenge for him on an emotional level.

The German’s nine-year tenure comes to an end this weekend, and he acknowledge that ‘nobody would believe’ him if he was ‘pretending that it’s a completely normal game.’

‘It’s a challenge for different reasons this time, and I hope we can just all together put a really good performance on the pitch. I think we would all deserve that and it’s much easier to celebrate afterwards if you saw a good game before,’ he added, admitting that ‘I cannot guarantee that now, but I will try as hard as I can.’

Reflecting on the success of his career on Merseyside, Klopp commented: ‘I know we could have won more, but I cannot change that anymore, so I’m absolutely fine. We could’ve won less, that’s possible as well.’

‘Not becoming a champion by a point [2018/19 and 2020/21] is not a great experience, but it’s an experience and it shows you that you are really good – that will not be in the history books obviously. It’s not, and then the ‘nearly’ wins will not be there, I know that, that’s life. But if you are in it, you cannot see it like that. I can. I couldn’t have done anything different in these moments.’
