Klopp farewell plans revealed

We are all edging closer to the day we have dreaded most – Klopp’s final game as Liverpool manager.

A report from the Liverpool Echo has provided some information about his farewell plans at Anfield after the Wolves match on May 19, with the German ‘asked to give one last speech’ to the crowd.
