Liverpool's FSG owners jetted in to Anfield to bid farewell to Jürgen Klopp on his final match. John Henry's wife was among the travelling party and she even managed a sarcastic dig at title-winners Manchester City.

As Liverpool honored its departing manager on Sunday afternoon, City was claiming a fourth successive Premier League title. Phil Foden capped a memorable season for Pep Guardiola's side as he scored twice against West Ham.

City's players celebrated their latest achievement on the pitch at the Etihad and the club's official Twitter/X account then posted 'This means four' in a clear dig at Liverpool.

The Reds' have used the motto 'This means more' throughout much of Klopp's tenure. The departing boss even took part in a video for the club back in 2018 and used the slogan.

City's post was unsurprisingly picked up by many at Liverpool and Linda Pizzuti even shared it on her Instagram story, before adding her own sarcastic response.

She wrote: "A sincere congratulations to Man City — Premier League champions! So much respect for this tremendous achievement. Thanks for thinking of us on your special day."

Linda had joined her husband John and fellow owner Tom Werner to make a presentation to Klopp on the pitch after the final whistle. She also shared footage from inside Anfield on an emotional afternoon, adding: "Some of the sights and sounds from a beautiful, moving, full stadium thank you."

City boss Pep Guardiola paid his own tribute to Klopp, with the pair battling it out for top spot in the Premier League for much of the German's tenure. "I will miss him a lot," he began. "Jürgen played a really important part in my life, he brought me to another level as a manager, I think we respect each other incredibly.

"There are many times where I didn't discover the way I played to punish him that I can find with other teams. With him, it's been so difficult. They are personalities, when they arrive in places, they stay forever. Jurgen and Liverpool, I'm sorry, the Shankly's, Paisley's, Jürgen will be there." says: Manchester City deserve recognition for another remarkable season. Yes those 115 charges remain a cloud over the achievements but on the pitch, Guardiola's men have been superb. The title post does show Liverpool remains on City's mind though and Arne Slot will hope his side can be right in the mix again next season.
