Prior to the gathering, Klopp shared a heartfelt message with supporters. On Instagram, Klopp addressed the fans: "Okay, so now I've tried to put myself somehow in proper gear to say now for the last time, hopefully, goodbye."

"I'm pretty sure it will be a good event," he added. "Again pretty emotional, but I think we are through the worst now. So we can have a good time and that's the plan. So I wish you as well if you can see it — if you can watch it (I'm not sure if somebody shows it) a wonderful night as well. So let's go! So here we go, that's it. Ready for the party."
