Jurgen Klopp's farewell was perfect and Ian Wright was blown away by "unbelievable" thing Klopp did

Liverpool fans experienced an emotional rollercoaster this weekend as they said goodbye to iconic manager, Jurgen Klopp.

Sunday's match against Wolves had been a highly anticipated event ever since Klopp announced his departure plans back in January.

While no Liverpool fan wanted this day to arrive, time marches on, and one of the club's greatest figures took his final bow.

The Liverpool players honoured their manager with a 2-0 victory over Wolves. Following the final whistle, Anfield rose in unison to bid farewell to a beloved leader.

Although the stands and the Liverpool squad were awash with tears, Klopp remained composed and positive as he delivered his final address to the fans.

Ian Wright Reflects on Klopp's Farewell

Liverpool moved swiftly to fill the managerial vacancy, confirming Arne Slot as the new head coach on Monday.

While Slot begins to shape his team for next season, the focus remains on reflecting on Klopp’s last moments as Liverpool manager.

Speaking on his podcast Wrighty’s House, former Arsenal forward and pundit Ian Wright shared his thoughts on Klopp’s emotional farewell.

Wright was particularly struck by Klopp's unexpected composure.

“I loved all that at Liverpool,” the Arsenal icon said. “He even said I expected to feel differently. I think he thought he might be a lot sadder than he was but the energy and the love was there for everyone to see.

“When I think of Klopp, I don’t think of Klopp who won the Champions League or Premier League or FA Cup.

"I just think of him as the guy who came in and transcended the fact that its about trophies.

"This is why he is going to be in the Shankly and Fagan and Kenny Dalglish, all those great manager’s names.

“He came in and connected, he loves the fans. Maybe that’s why he was singing Arne Slot. Unbelievable.

"It just felt really good, I’m pleased he was happy with the way it went. It didn’t seem like he was over emotional, it just felt really, really nice.”

Klopp’s Tone Hits the Right Note

Many Liverpool fans were fully in sync with the tone of Klopp’s speech on Sunday.

Rather than a sombre farewell, it felt more like a celebration. Klopp, always one to emphasise the positives, used the moment to express his faith in Liverpool's future.

Despite acknowledging the end of an era, Klopp's farewell was forward-looking. He accentuated his belief in the collective strength of Liverpool, suggesting that this was just the beginning of something new for the club.

A Surprising Lack of Emotion?

While some might have expected more emotion from Klopp, his composed demeanour did not diminish the significance of the moment.

Klopp's bond with the club, the city, and the fans has been evident throughout his tenure.

Sunday was about looking ahead, not back, a fitting reflection of Klopp’s optimistic outlook.

Like Ian Wright, many were surprised by Klopp's calmness.

But in hindsight, perhaps it was a testament to his enduring positivity and confidence in Liverpool's bright future.
