Liverpool have revealed plans for emotional Jurgen Klopp sends off with a night of ‘wonderful memories and great music’ confirmed.

Liverpool have unveiled plans for a farewell event to honour Jurgen Klopp as he approaches the end of his near nine-year tenure with the club.

With only two matches remaining in his role, Klopp’s impending departure marks the end of an era for the Reds, prompting a desire to bid him a fitting farewell. Despite hopes of securing additional silverware, Liverpool’s season did not unfold as anticipated, leaving them with a sole League Cup triumph and a consolation prize of a UEFA Champions League berth for next season.

Nonetheless, recognising Klopp’s monumental contributions, the club deemed it necessary to orchestrate a grand celebration of his time at Anfield.


The farewell arrangement named ‘An Evening with Jürgen Klopp & Special Guests,’ is scheduled to take place at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on Tuesday, May 28. Renowned comedian and lifelong Liverpool supporter, John Bishop, will serve as the master of ceremonies for the evening, adding a touch of humour and sentimentality to the proceedings.

The event will also feature musical performances by Merseyside bands, including Lightning Seeds and The Zutons. Whereas, the highlight of the session will be a live question-and-answer session with Klopp, hosted by LFCTV’s Peter McDowall, which promises fans an intimate glimpse into the manager’s reflections and experiences during his tenure at Liverpool. This interactive segment offers supporters a chance to engage directly with Klopp, sharing anecdotes and memories from his remarkable journey with the club.

“This is going to be a very special night, with lots of fantastic memories shared and plenty of great music too,” said Klopp to the official club website. “I’m really looking forward to spending it with our fans, the heartbeat of this wonderful and unique club.”

It has been reported that plans for a citywide parade in Klopp’s honour were shelved following his preference to avoid public celebrations after an underwhelming end to the campaign. However, the farewell evening on May 28 is poised to be a celebratory affair, allowing fans to reminisce and celebrate Klopp’s illustrious legacy at Liverpool.

Klopp’s charismatic leadership and tactical acumen have endeared him to the Liverpool faithful, earning him a revered status within the club’s storied history. His final two matches as Liverpool manager are against Aston Villa and Wolves, but the manager must refrain from any touchline squabble at Villa Park as he is already on two yellow cards. If he picks up his third then he will be banned from sitting in the Anfield dugout to oversee his farewell fixture.
