As Jürgen Klopp prepares for his final game at Anfield, the departing Liverpool boss has been reflecting on some of his favorite memories during his nine years at the club.

Klopp will take charge of the Reds for the final time on Sunday as Liverpool faces Wolves in its last game of the season. It’s certain to be an emotional occasion at Anfield, with fans getting one last opportunity to show their appreciation for one of the club’s greatest managers.

It’s already been an emotional week for the German, who has been saying his goodbyes to the club’s players and staff ahead of the weekend. Klopp also revealed he’d been brought to tears after reading letters from the club’s supporters.

Klopp’s departure has inevitably brought back memories of some of the club’s best moments under his guidance over the last nine years. The Premier League and Champions League triumphs of course feature heavily for fans, not to mention that night against Barcelona.

That got a special mention from Klopp as he looked back on his time with Liverpool on Friday, although it was the clash with Man City back in March that he labeled as the best football played under him. The departing boss also named his favorite goal during his time in charge, with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané not getting the nod, although the latter did receive a unique accolade.

“The football we played was the best we played against Man City this year. We never controlled them like we did that day,” Klopp commented.

“That day we played the best. We won before but it was different games. Controlling a game like that, it was my favorite 60 minutes or so.

“Most spectacular, Barcelona. Best goal, Alisson Becker. Best assist, Trent Alexander-Arnold. Best save Alisson Becker against Napoli. Do you want best cross? Best backheel goal, Sadio Mané.” says: You can’t really argue with those choices. There might have been more spectacular goals scored during his reign — Mohamed Salah against Chelsea springs to mind — but Alisson’s goal against West Brom is just special for so many reasons.

It tells you everything about that Barcelona game that it is probably even more memorable than the final that followed it. Among all the trophies won, that night at Anfield will surely be the abiding memory of Klopp’s time in charge.
