Jürgen Klopp: One of Liverpool’s greatest ever players is leaving 

Jürgen Klopp says he respects Sadio Mané’s decision to go on a new adventure and wishes the forward the best of luck in the future.

 “It’s a big moment. There is no point in anyone trying to pretend otherwise. One of Liverpool’s greatest ever players is leaving and we must acknowledge how significant this is.

"We must not dwell on what we now lose, instead celebrate what we were privileged to have. The goals he scored, the trophies he won; a legend, for sure, but also a modern-day Liverpool icon.

"Since he first stepped through the door, he made us better. If someone had told us in that moment what he would go on to contribute and achieve for this club, I’m not sure it would have been possible to comprehend in that moment."
