After Jurgen Klopp announced his departure from Liverpool at the end of the season, many asked if the Liverpool players had known about the decision before. The German coach said he told the players about his decision yesterday and knew about it on the same day as everyone else. Liverpool fans are unsure if this decision will motivate the players or will put more pressure on them.

Klopp mentioned in his press conference, "The players didn't have a lot of questions; they are in a good mood." Klopp spoke about not wanting to talk more about his decision since he wants him and his players to focus on the rest of the season. Virgil Van Dijk is the first one from the Liverpool squad to speak about Klopp's decision and what he means to him.

Van Dijk says, "It's a hard one to take, because the manager means so much for us, to me, to the club, to the whole Premier League I think. But he made the decision for him and his family. It was always going to be a tough one and it was definitely the case. Why not finish the season on a high and together with celebrations for the boss? Let's make the rest of the season a special one so he can have the farewell that he definitely deserves."

Their next Premier League will be next week at Anfield against Chelsea. Next month, Liverpool will play Chelsea in the EFL Cup final at Wembley, and the team will look to give Klopp another trophy.
