Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has lost his mother. According to Sky Sports on Wednesday February 10, Klopp lost his mother who died back in Germany.
Elisabeth, Klopp’s mother, was pronounced dead and the Liverpool boss had a lot to say about her. “She meant the world to me, ” he said when he spoke to the media.
Klopp’s mother was 81 years old at the time of her death and the Liverpool boss prayed for the best for her. “She was a devout Christian and I know she is in a better place, ” Klopp revealed.
The manager was, however, disappointed as he could not travel for the funeral. This is due to the travel restrictions set by Germany on flights coming in from the United Kingdom.
Germany set restrictions to bar flights from the UK until February 17 due to the variant of Covid19 currently ravaging the nation.
England continues to battle the new variant of Covid19 as vaccines keep being distributed.
Some matches like the Manchester United versus Real Sociedad Europa League clash has been scheduled to be played in Turin, Italy.
Klopp’s father died in 2000 at the age of 66 due to heart problems. The manager is now left with two sisters.
