“Yes, I expect Divock to get a special reception, farewell. He is and will be, for me, forever a Liverpool legend. One of the most important players I ever had, that sounds completely strange with the number of games he had but it was, and is, a pure joy to work together with him,” Klopp said.

“It’s not over yet just because it’s the last Premier League game, but, yes, he deserves all the good thoughts we can generate for his future. Wherever he will go he will be successful, 100 percent. An outstanding player, an outstanding boy,” he added.
