Virgil van Dijk tears: Liverpool pays tribute to Jurgen Klopp

Virgil van Dijk tears explain everything about Jurgen Klopp’s time at Liverpool. Most of the Liverpool players, supporters, and their star defender, Virgil van Dijk were quite emotional on the occasion of the German veteran Jurgen Klopp’s last game as their manager in the Premier League. After their last home game of the season against Wolves, the Anfiled aroused to give Klopp a heartfelt farewell.

Every player from the Red’s roster hugged their Gaffer and greeted him personally. However, Virgil van Dijk held on to Klopp for quite a long period of seconds. As he hugged the German, it appeared as if he was quite emotional and almost in tears, and Klopp was consoling him at that very moment.

Then when it came to expressing his feeling in words, as quoted by ‘Sky Sports’, in his post-match interview, the Dutch defender stated – “I’ve got no words, it’s a very special day”. He also labeled the last few moments of Klopp’s farewell match as “tough”. Virgil van Dijk has been the pillar under Jurgen Klopp for Liverpool. His leadership and defensive prowess have been the foundation on which the German boss built his team.

Earlier in the 2023-2024 season Klopp announced that he will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season. Since then, the Reds have been on a search for a new manager to replace him at the English club. Finally, their search was halted when the club’s hierarchy decided to elect Dutch club Feyenoord’s manager, Arne Slot, as Klopp’s successor at Liverpool from the 2024-2025 season.

Liverpool registered a victory over Wolves to give Jurgen Klopp a winning send-off

Liverpool managed to grab a 2-0 win over Wolves in their last match of the 2023-2024 season to give their German manager Jurgen Klopp a winning send-off in his final match as in charge of the Premier League club. The players were expected to put in a performance and play for their Gaffer which they did to make his farewell game one to remember.

Of course, the Reds were helped by the fact that Wolves were down to 10 men for pretty much the major part of the match. The Old Gold’s right-back Nelson Semedo received a controversial red card mid-way through the first half of the match. From that very moment, Klopp’s team had an opening and they were on the front foot. Two first-half goals from Liverpool’s Alexis Mac Allister and Jarell Quansah were enough to see out the visitors.
