Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s mother Elisabeth has died at the age of 81.
Klopp’s mum passing was confirmed on Liverpool’s official Twitter account on Wednesday with a picture of Klopp alongside the club’s motto: “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.
The former Dortmund coach has paid tribute to his mum in German newspaper Schwarzwaelder Bote, who revealed the news of Elisabeth’s death, 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.”
Elisabeth married Klopp’s dad Norbert in 1960, and the couple had three children: Stefanie, Isolde and the youngster, Jurgen.
Norbert passed away in 2000 at the age of 66 after a short illness.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
