A mural paying tribute to Jürgen Klopp was unveiled in Liverpool on Tuesday drawing fans and locals to admire the artwork celebrating the charismatic coach’s impact on the club.

Klopp, also an ambassador for the German brewery Erdinger Weissbrau, was depicted by artist John Culshaw on the side of a building in Slater Street, adding to the city’s vibrant street art scene.

The 56-year-old will step as the Reds boss at the end of the current season.

Klopp, who took over the managerial reins in October 2015 with a contract originally slated to extend until 2026, leaves behind an indelible legacy.

During his tenure, he achieved remarkable success, notably securing the UEFA Champions League title in 2019 and guiding Liverpool to their first Premier League championship in three decades during the 2019-2020 season.

His departure marks the end of an era for the club, with fans and football enthusiasts worldwide acknowledging his profound impact on Liverpool’s fortunes and the broader footballing landscape.

Klopp holds a unique distinction among Liverpool managers, being the only one to secure victories in the league title, European Cup/Champions League, FA Cup, and EFL Cup during his tenure with the Reds.

Liverpool assistant managers Pepijn Lijnders and Peter Krawietz, along with elite development coach Vitor Matos, will depart the club alongside Klopp.

Klopp’s departure has sent shockwaves through the club, but Liverpool are prioritising a smooth transition.

The club has announced Michael Edwards as Fenway Sports Group’s CEO of Football, while Richard Hughes has been appointed as the new sporting director.

Edwards and Hughes are in the market to find Jurgen Klopp’s successor and several managers have been linked with the soon-to-be vacant role.

Sporting’s Ruben Amorim and Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi are reportedly the top candidates while Xabi Alonso has ruled himself out of the position after opting to stay at Bayer Leverkusen for at least one more season.

Amorim’s contract at the Jose Alvalade Stadium extends until 2026 while De Zerbi has two years remaining on his Brighton contract.
