Jürgen Klopp shared a powerful message to Liverpool fans as he said goodbye to Anfield. The German manager has stepped down from his role as manager after nearly a decade in charge and beat Wolves 2-0 in his final Premier League game.

After full-time, no fans left their seats as they all waited for Klopp to address them one last time. He shared a passionate message about fans being believers, the state of the club he leaves behind and a message of support for successor Arne Slot.

It was a speech typical of the man who has captured the hearts of Liverpool fans and been adopted as one of their own. As he outlined the fact he is now, "one of us", Klopp was given a well-deserved standing ovation while some of his own players struggled to contain their emotions.

Here is every word Klopp said on the pitch at Anfield in his final address to the Liverpool faithful as manager.

"I’m completely surprised, I thought I’m already in pieces, to be honest, but I’m not. I’m so happy, I can’t believe it.

"I’m so happy about you all, about the atmosphere, about the game, about being part of this family, about us, how we celebrated this day. It’s just incredible. Thank you so much.”

Asked which game from his time in charge he would go back to, he joked: "One of the City games we drew. That would have helped!

"No, the atmosphere was actually great. Thanks for ignoring my request to not sing my song completely since weeks (ago)."

Fans then burst into his song, to which he replied: "Thank you. If you sing it next year that will be funny!

"Honestly, for whatever reason, it doesn’t feel like an end. It just feels like the start, because I saw today a football team playing full of talent, full of youth, full of creativity, full of desire, full of grit.

"That’s one part of development, that’s what you need obviously, but obviously since a few weeks I got absolutely too much attention, it’s really uncomfortable, but in this time I realised a lot of things.

"People told me I turned them from doubters into believers, that’s not true. Believing is an active act, you have to do it yourself. I just said we have to, you did it. That is a big difference.

"And who tells you, nobody tells you now to stop believing, because this club is in a better moment than, not ever, maybe ever, I’d have to ask Kenny (Dalglish). Probably ever…since a long time (ago), let me say it like that.

"So we have this wonderful stadium, we have this wonderful training center, we have you, the super power of world football, wow.

"We decide if they are worried or excited. We decide if we believe or if we don’t believe. We decide if we trust or we don’t trust.

"Since today I am once of you, and I keep believing in you. I stay a believer, one hundred percent.

"And obviously I saw a lot of people crying, and it will happen to me tonight as well because I will miss people, that’s clear.

"But as well, change is good. And you never know exactly what to expect, but if you go with the right attitude into that, then everything will be fine, because the basics are 100% there.

"They’re the team and that’s the new coach, sorry, manager, and you will care what I want you to think, but I have an idea, I heard the song today a few times, and you can do that, I have no problem with that, let’s see how the response will be..."

He then burst into a chant for his successor, Arne Slot, and continued: "When the next season starts you are not waiting to see what’s going on, no you go full throttle into it. You welcome the new manager like you welcome me. You go all in from the first day.

"And when it’s hard, you keep believing. When it’s difficult, you keep believing and you push the team, for a goal or whatever. I’m one of you now, I love you to bits.”

"The only thing we don’t have here in this wonderful stadium is the video walls, and I have to tell you, on my jumper is ‘Thank You Luv’ and ‘I Will Never Walk Alone Again’. Thank you for that, you are the best people in the world. Thank you."
