Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp is now able to see the funny side of his touchline spat with Mohamed Salah as he prepares to end his Anfield tenure. Klopp will bid farewell to Liverpool after Sunday's final match of the season against Wolves.

Unfortunately, there will be no Premier League title on the line after the Reds' stuttering end to the campaign saw Manchester City and Arsenal pull clear. Klopp's men will finish third in the table, having won just two of its last seven matches.

Liverpool has picked up a point in three of those, including a 2-2 draw with West Ham last month. Klopp clashed with Salah as the Egyptian prepared to enter the fray in the closing stages.

An angry Salah then refused to stop for the media after the game, warning 'there will be fire' if he spoke. Klopp insisted afterwards that the matter was finished and he recalled Salah to the starting line-up for the next match, the win over Tottenham.

Klopp received a goodbye video from some of his current and former players and joked Salah's message must have been recorded before the touchline spat. He told The Anfield Wrap: "Someone showed me a video of what all my old players had to say about me. So it was Millie [James Milner], Adam [Lallana], Trent [Alexander-Arnold], Virgil [Van Dijk] and Mo — before West Ham probably! It was very positive. I am proud of creating these kinds of relationships."

While Klopp will certainly be leaving this summer, Salah's future remains unclear. He has just one year remaining on his current deal and Saudi Pro League clubs are expected to reignite their interest this summer. Yet The Athletic reports Liverpool is preparing to start the season with the Egyptian.

Klopp also reserved praise for some of the younger players he has worked with in recent seasons. “It is incredible how good they are and I would love to be around to do that," he added. "I will follow it and watch it. I’m happy and I will phone them as long as they keep me in their list, I would love to do that absolutely." says: The incident at West Ham is water under the bridge for Klopp and Salah, who have played huge parts in Liverpool's success in recent years. The Egyptian has been one of the best players of Klopp's tenure and the German has also done an awful lot for his career. They are two Liverpool legends.
