Sadly for the former Borussia Dortmund boss, he was unable to travel to German for his mother’s funeral due to pandemic-related travel issues National Daily further learnt.
Klopp added: “The fact that I can’t be at the funeral is due to the terrible times. As soon as the circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful commemoration that is appropriate to it.”
