Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to Liverpool's supporters, branding Anfield "the superpower of world football" and in an emotional end-of-season address.

Klopp's side ended their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win over Wolves thanks to first-half goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Jarell Quansah to bring a winning end to a glittering near nine-year career that saw eight trophies lifted including the Premier League and Champions League.

After being given a guard of honour from his players and staff, the outgoing Reds manager was presented with a specially-commissioned plaque by owners Fenway Sports Group, who were present at Anfield to say their goodbyes.

In a chat with LFCTV's Peter McDowall, Klopp, who implored the fans to get behind new manager Arne Slot next season, said: “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.

“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 greed. That’s one part of development, that’s what you need obviously.

“But obviously since a few weeks I get absolutely too much attention, it feels really uncomfortable. But in this time I realised a lot of things. People told me that I turned them from doubters to 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’s a big difference.

“And nobody tells you now to stop believing. Because this club is in a better moment than ever? Maybe ever – I have to ask Kenny [Dalglish]! Since a long time, let me say it like that.

“We have this wonderful stadium, we have this wonderful training centre. We have you – the superpower of world football. Wow.

“We decide if we are worried or excited. We decide if we believe or don’t believe. We decide if we trust or we don’t trust. And since today I’m one of you and I keep believing in you. I stay a believer, 100%.

“I’m one of you now. I love you to bits. 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.”
