The Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was unable to travel for his mum’s burial in Germany due to the covid-19 restrictions and for that case, he has paid tribute for his mum following her death at 81.
Elisabeth Klopp passed away last month, and is depended by Jurgen and his two sisters Stefanie and Isolde.
Speaking with German publication ‘Schwarzwaelder-bote’ the liverpool manager has expressed his message of sorrow to his mum having been unable to attend her funeral on Tuesday following the covid-19 restrictions in Germany.
“She meant everything to me. She was a real mom in the best sense of the word,” he said.
“As a devout Christian, I know she is in a better place now.”
‘She meant everything to me’ – Klopp pays tribute to his mother
Covid-19 travel restrictions prevented him from travelling back to his home in Germany for the memorial service, but he has pledged to commemorate his mother’s life in a separate event when it is safe to do so.
“The fact that I can’t be at the funeral is due to the terrible times,” he added.
“As soon as the circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful commemoration that is appropriate.”
He is the last born of the three children her mum had with their father Norman who died in 2000 aged 66.
