Liverpool planning open-top bus parade so fans can say emotional farewell to Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool fans could be given a chance to give Jurgen Klopp a big send-off at the end of the season with an open top bus parade.

This unusual event is being pondered not merely to celebrate their Carabao Cup success but also to provide a big farewell to Jurgen Klopp, who is scheduled to leave in May after a remarkable nine-year stint with the Merseyside club. An open-top bus trip would not normally be Liverpool’s choice after winning the Carabao Cup but the special circumstances of Klopp’s exit have made the club’s executives think about organising something special, according to The Telegraph.

The report states that Liverpool would look to move forward with these plans even if they don’t win any more championships this year. A quadruple is still conceivable, of course. The Reds are the league leaders right now, and are favourites to win the Europa League. They are also set to return to FA Cup action next against Southampton.

Klopp Premier League medal

Klopp was appointed Liverpool’s manager in 2015. He led the team to the UEFA Champions League finals in 2018, 2019 and 2022, winning the trophy in 2019. Klopp’s side finished second in the 2018-19 Premier League, with 97 points, the third-highest total in the history of the English top flight and the most by a team that did not win the title. He managed to win the the title one year later in a campaign disrupted by the COVID pandemic.

The Reds will have to put a swift end to their Carabao Cup victory celebrations as they prepare for their clash against Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday, February 28.
