Klopp couldn’t reach Germany to attend his mother’s funeral

Jürgen Klopp paid an emotional tribute to mother Elisabeth after her death, aged 81, but it is known that he could not attend the funeral in person in his native Germany due to concerns of transmitting Covid-19 strains from high-risk countries.

During the coronavirus pandemic owing to the new travel restrictions in place, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp was unable to go to Germany for his mother’s funeral on Tuesday.

“She meant everything to me. She was a real mum in the best sense of the word,” Klopp told German newspaper Schwarzwaelder Bote. “As a devout Christian, I know she is in a better place now.”

“The fact that I can’t be at the funeral is due to the terrible times, but as soon as the circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful commemoration that is appropriate to it.”

On Wednesday, Liverpool tweeted a message of support for their manager which read: “You’ll never walk alone, Jürgen.”
