Jurgen Klopp has given an emotional tribute to his mother Elisabeth after she died today at the age of 81.
The Liverpool manager will not be able to attend the funeral of his late mother due to travel restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Klopp had not been able to visit his mother in Germany since her 80th birthday and will return to his homeland for a memorial service when he is allowed to travel, KosovaPress reports.
The Reds coach told Schwarzenegger: “It meant everything to me. “She was a real mother in the best sense of the word.”
“As a devout Christian, I know she is in a better place now.”
The German technician further added: “Not being at the funeral is due to terrible times. “As soon as conditions allow, we will do a wonderful memorial service.”
