While Mohamed Salah of Liverpool expressed that it was “hard to take” to hear that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving the team at the end of the campaign, the Reds star hopes to send his manager off on a good note.

Liverpool leads the Premier League by five points and is in the running for three additional trophies: the FA Cup, the League Cup, and the Europa League.

After almost nine years in charge at Anfield, Klopp revealed his unexpected decision to quit down on Friday, citing a lack of energy.

“It’s a difficult one to accept, as the manager holds great significance for us, myself, the team, and the entire Premier League,” remarked Mo Salah, who joined Liverpool under Klopp’s tutelage for a then-record £36.5 million.

“However, he made the choice for his family and himself. That was always going to be difficult, and it really was.”

Liverpool host Norwich in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday at what is sure to be an emotionally-charged Anfield in the first match since the news broke.

Klopp’s men this week also reached the League Cup final, where they will face Chelsea next month, and are the favourites for the Europa League having already qualified for the last 16.

“We have a lot of targets still to achieve this year and why not finish the season on a high and together with celebrations for the boss as well?” Mo Salah

“Let’s make the rest of the season a special one so he can have the farewell that he definitely deserves.”

Liverpool are keen to avoid the fate suffered by Manchester United in 2001/02 when the Red Devils struggled after Alex Ferguson announced his intention to retire, only for the Scot to later change his mind and stay on at Old Trafford for another decade.

Klopp insisted there will be no change of heart on his decision and Mo Salah believes it could give his players extra motivation in what remains of the campaign.

“It will maybe even give you an extra boost to do that extra (bit) or maybe enjoy it a little bit even more together,” added the Egyptian.

“And make the last part of the season, the last bit of the manager’s time at the club, the best time he’s ever had. That’s what we strive for and that’s why it’s business as usual.”
