Klopp unable to attend his late mother’s funeral

Football News

Because of COVID-19 travel restrictions, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was unable to return to Germany to attend his late mother’s funeral.

Klopp paid his mother, Elisabeth, an emotional tribute on Wednesday, after she died at the age of 81.

On Tuesday, the funeral was held.

Klopp told the Schwarzwaelder Bote German newspaper: “She meant it all to me.” In the best sense of the word, she was a proper mum.

I know as a believer in Christ that she is in a better position now.

“I can’t be at the funeral because of these awful times, [but] as soon as circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful, fitting memorial for her.”

In 1960, Elisbeth married Norbert, the father of Klopp, and the couple had three children: Stefanie, Isolde, and Jurgen, the youngest.

Because of the UK COVID-19 version, Germany has placed tighter restrictions on travel from Britain. Football has changed that.

Liverpool, for instance, won’t be able to fly to Germany for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie against RB Leipzig on 16 February.

Last week, a German Interior Ministry statement said that the Bundesliga club Leipzig had been told the fixture “does not comply with the exception requirements.”

At the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary, the first leg of the Champions League Round 16 clash will now be played.
