Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to the late Ronnie Moran.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: “It’s a sad day. I had the honour of meeting him last year around the League Cup final. Obviously I am not from Liverpool, I am not from England, and so I needed a little bit of help but when I heard about this very special story then it was really nice to meet him. It was a big honour for me.

“Today is a very sad day for all of us. All of our thoughts and all of our love are with the family.

“We tried to pay our respects like a football club should do for a real member of the club, a real figure of the club, with a minute of silence.

“It was impressive because the players were immediately in the mood; all of them have heard about him and that shows how special his relationship with this great club was,” he added.
