The Liverpool coach’s mother has died in Germany at the age of 81, and her son will not be able to attend the funeral due to German restrictions.
It’s a difficult moment that Jürgen Klopp is going through. Her mother, Elisabeth, died last January at the age of 81 in Germany.
However, the German coach will not be able to travel to his country to be with his family at such a difficult time, nor to attend his mother’s funeral.
In an interview for the ‘Schwarzwalder Bote’, the Liverpool coach confirmed that he had not received permission from the German authorities to return to his country for the occasion.
Flights from the UK are still banned in Germany to prevent the spread of the English variant of the coronavirus, and Klopp will be no exception. On social networks, Liverpool supporters were keen to support him.
“The fact that I cannot attend his funeral is due to the terrible times we are going through. But as soon as the circumstances allow, we will have a magnificent commemoration dedicated to him,” confirmed the Reds coach.
