The game itself was almost a secondary spectacle, as Liverpool had consolidated third place and had nothing to play for. First-half goals from Alex Mac Allister and Jarell Quansah were enough to secure all three points for Liverpool, who finished third on the log after winning the Carabao Cup.

After the game, the moment fans had been dreading finally came, as Klopp delivered a final farewell speech with a nice twist.

According to This is Anfield, Klopp came up with a hilarious chant dedicated to the incoming Liverpool manager Arne Slot.

Slot confirmed on Friday, May 17 that he would become Klopp’s successor.

"Until now I was not thinking about this being the build-up to my last match, but that starts coming now. At the beginning of the week you are thinking about training and those kind of things,” he said.
"But the feeling gets stronger now. That is why I'm a little bit late now [for the news conference], because I wanted to say goodbye to some people personally and take time for them, more than just shaking hands.

Before Slot was confirmed as the next Liverpool boss, Klopp had already exuded confidence in the Dutchman, saying the outgoing Feyenoord boss was the right man for the job.

“I liked the signings a lot. Who the club is bringing in, I like them all. We have a good team, a really good manager is coming in - and we have all these guys too. The club is in good hands. Klopp said, per The Mirror.

After his speech, Klopp treated all four sides of Anfield to his iconic fist bumps as the crowd erupted for the German one last time.
