Liverpool players' reaction to Klopp's departure decision

Klopp had announced on Friday morning his intention to depart from Liverpool at the end of this season, ending his 9-year tenure.

 According to the English newspaper "Telegraph", Liverpool players were not informed of Jurgen Klopp's departure decision until hours before it was announced.

It was revealed that Liverpool players were given some extra time to digest the shocking news before it was officially disclosed, just a few hours before. Klopp had made his decision to leave Anfield in November, but this information remained under wraps until the official announcement, with players unaware until that morning.

Klopp had succeeded in building extremely strong relationships with his players, such as Mohamed Salah, Alisson Becker, and Virgil van Dijk, who have been key pillars of the team's success in recent years, and like the rest of the world, they were stunned by the news.

Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017, followed by Alisson and Van Dijk.

De Zerbi comments on his connection to Klopp's succession in Liverpool

Brighton manager Roberto Di Zerbi commented on the widespread speculation about the possibility of him succeeding Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool. Klopp had announced his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the current season on Friday morning.

Several coaches have been linked with the possibility of succeeding Klopp at Liverpool, including Brighton's Roberto Di Zerbi.

In response to this, Di Zerbi said in statements published by the English newspaper "The Independent": "My focus is solely on the latter part of the season."

He added: "We are competing and playing a historic part of the season. We are competing in the Premier League to achieve the same goal as last season (European qualification)."

He continued: "We will play in the round of 16 of the Europa League, we are also competing in the FA Cup, and we remember last season's defeat at Wembley, and for this reason, I am watching my team."

He added: "I am extremely saddened because if he (Klopp) decides to change the league or change the country, then the Premier League will lose one of the best coaches in the world. I consider Klopp, Guardiola, Ancelotti, and Marcelo Bielsa as the best coaches in the world, and I am saddened by that."

He concluded: "I can understand that very well. I believe our job is the best job you can do, but it's extremely difficult. You need energy, you have to move forward every day. If you don't work with the right energy, you will lose everything."
