Before the event, Jurgen Klopp sent a special message to fans. Talking on Instagram, Klopp said to 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 - 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."

Klopp ends the clip with a shot of himself in the mirror dressed in a navy blue suit with white trainers.

An Evening with Jurgen Klopp capped off an emotional few months for the departing LFC boss, who announced in January that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.
