In front of a sold-out crowd at Anfield, Liverpool fans said goodbye to the club’s manager Juergen Klopp.

With songs, murals and tributes the 56-year-old German was bid farewell after managing Liverpool Football Club for eight years.

The final game was against the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The team bus was welcomed by crowds who lined up the streets to welcome the players and Klopp.

Before kickoff, Liverpool fans traditionally sing “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, the club’s official anthem. Before the last game, Klopp scanned the crowd as they sung and then tapped a hand to his heart.

During his eight years as manager, Klopp managed to lead the team to seven trophies. One of those was Europe’s Champions League in 2019 and the club’s first English league title in three decades in 2020.

Klopp said his reason for leaving was to recharge his batteries.

Reuters reports that it wasn’t only success that endeared Klopp to fans. They loved his passion and personality: Fist-pumps at the end of games, bear hugs for players, time for charitable causes, indignant protests at dubious decisions, and insistence on a high-energy aggressive “gengenpress” style of football.
