The German will go with the hearts of the 60,000 admirers who wished him Auf Wiedersehen, as well as milliоns throughout the world.

Among them was wife Ulla, who wiped away tears as the Kop serenaded her husband, with whom she will be spending his, at least temporarily, retirement at the couple’s bright Majorcan estate.

The departed Liverpool manager, 56, finished his term with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Wolves at Anfield, thanks to goals from Alexis MacAllister and Jarell Quansah.

Liverpool fans lined the streets before the game and filled Anfield afterward.Klopp was introduced to the audience and serenaded before conducting an emotional interview in front of his team.

He said, “I am startled. I expected to be in pieces by now, but I am not.

“I’m very thrilled for you guys, the atmosphere, the game, being a part of this family, and how we celebrate this day.

“It does not feel like the end. It just feels like the beginning. Today I witnessed a football game packed of ability, youth, inventiveness, desire, and greed. That’s one aspect of development, and it’s what you definitely require.”During these several weeks of undivided focus, I realized a lot. People sаy I converted them from doubts to believers.

“That is not true. You did it. Nobody tells you not to believe. This club is doing better than it has in a long time.”We have this fantastic stadium and training facility, as well as you, the world’s football superpower. Wow.

“We determine whether we’re concerned or excited. We determine if we believe. We determine whether or not to trust. Today, I am one of you, and I continue to believe. I continue to believe 100%.

“Obviously, I saw a lot of people weep, and I will tonight because I will miss them, but change is wonderful. Everything will be alright because the fundamentals are completely present.

“You greet the new management like you did me. You go all in on the first day. You keep believing. You push the team. I am now one of you. I adore you to bits.

Thank you. You’re the best team in the world. “Thank you!”

Klopp then began a chant for his replacement, Arne Slot, before strolling around the pitch and performing his famous first pumps.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, a local, was moved to tears as he witnessed the club he grew up supporting enter a new era.

Third place and a spot in next season’s Champions League were already secured.

So, even if Klopp declared himself in “game mode” before kickoff, it was always about him.

What mattered far more was that the farewell was appropriate, which the faithful and his players both ensured.

Slott may have been watching in Holland as he prepares to take over this week, and if he wasn’t already aware of the vacuum he will fill before this tearful departure, he is now.Wolves, at the end of manager Gary O’Neil’s first successful season, were never truly competitive, and by the 28th minute, they were also down to ten me𝚗.

Nelson Semedo recklessly dived in on Mac Allister, resulting in a booking from referee Chris Kavanagh.

Once, Klopp would have screamed for harsher punishment, but although he kept calm, VAR David Coote urged another look, and Kavanagh increased the card to red.

Six minutes later, Mac Allister nodded in the opening goal, leaping ahead of Santiago Bueno to meet Harvey Elliott’s cross.

Just before halftime, the lead was increased when centre-back Quansah stretched to connect with Mohamed Salah’s strike.Luis Diaz should have made three but struck the crossbar.

The lyrical ending of Egyptian king Salah scoring the final goal of Klopp’s reign was foiled when his 69th-minute shot was wonderfully tipped over by Jose Sa.

But that didn’t ruin the party, as the players dashed to hug their manager.

After the game, Virgil van Dijk told Sky Sports, “I don’t have any words.

“This has been an emotional day. It was always going to be a difficult afternoon.

“You cannot prepare for these situations or moments. He deserves all of the attention he’s getting right now.”

The legendary German has indicated that he may not return to the dugout..

According to Fabrizio Romano, Klopp admitted: “It will be a long break for sure. It might possibly be it.

“My tenure in England is officially done because I will not be coaching another team here.

“If I manage again, it will not be around the corner” .

The seasoned tactician is fatigued by the demands of his profession and intends to escape the spotlight by retreating to the quiet and tranquility of his Mallorca estate.

According to sources close to Klopp, he is truly dissatisfied with management.

And he is now eager to live a quieter life away from the media spotlight.

Klopp gave a glimpse into his now-former office following a “strange and emotional” Liverpool training session.

The former Borussia Dortmund and Mainz manager stunneԀ fans by joining Instagram and then sharing a heartfelt farewell video. 

He then followed up with another video in which he showed supporters inside his office at the club’s training facility.

“So here I am, my last day at the office. The last session was completed, and I’d describe it as odd.”Obviously, I determine what I think until I’m overwhelmed tomorrow.

“So, I will leave this place which is… erm… yeah… an interesting experience I would sаy.””
