Klopp and mother

Elisabeth, the mother to Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has died at the age of 81.

Klopp has paid an emotional tribute to his mum in German newspaper Schwarzwaelder Bote, saying: “She meant everything to me.

“She was a real mum in the best sense of the word. As a devout Christian, I know she is in a better place now.”

Due to pandemic-related travel issues, Klopp was unable to travel to Germany for the funeral.

Klopp added: “The fact that I can’t be at the funeral is due to the terrible times. As soon as the circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful commemoration that is appropriate to it.”
