Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has paid an emotional tribute to his late mother, Madam Elizabeth Klopp who died on the 19th of January, 2021.
Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to her in a German newspaper newspaper Schwarzwaelder Bote as he described her as a real mum.
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.”
However, Jurgen Klopp expressed his disappointment in not being able to attend her funeral in Germany due to COVID-19 restrictions but he promised to hold a befitting commemoration in her honour at the right time.
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 time
Elizabeth married Nobert Klopp in 1960 and they have three children.
Jurgen Klopp is the last in the family and the only male child. His two sisters are Stephanie and Isolde.
