“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.
