Jürgen Klopp delivered a special thanks to Liverpool supporters for making Sunday's end-of-season parade such a powerful occasion.

Fewer than 24 hours after narrowly being beaten in the Champions League final, the Reds toured the city in recognition of a remarkable 2021-22 campaign.

Klopp’s men lifted the Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup, while also finishing as Premier League runners-up, and the LFC Women squad were crowned FA Women’s Championship winners.

During the parade, the manager spoke to Liverpoolfc.com and revealed how the turnout and the connection with fans made him so emotional.

On the emotions felt during the parade…

Without a shadow of a doubt, no club in the world – this world – that they lost the Champions League final the night before and the people arrive here in the shape they are, the mood they are. Absolutely outstanding. This is the best club in the world – I don’t care what other people think!

On the players being nervous about what to expect from the parade…

Round-up'Best fans in the world' - Players react to Reds' trophy parade Liverpool's players were left awestruck by the show of support they received during Sunday's end-of-season parade.

I wasn’t sure what we can expect. We spoke about it before, ‘What do we do?’ You have to plan this kind of thing. You can’t just decide to have a parade. But I hoped that we find something like this, it’s absolutely incredible.

On wanting the players to enjoy occasions like this…

That’s the biggest sign you can give to the world. Yes, we won two competitions, great, but we didn’t win the last two – and these people don’t forget, they know exactly what a shift the boys put in. Absolutely incredible. It’s such a boost for everything that will come. Unbelievable.

On his pride in the squad and the supporters…

I’m proud of the players but I’m proud of these people, to be honest. Unbelievable. Yesterday in the stadium some things happened that nobody understood, our families were in trouble, all these kinds of things. Now we come here and see this, when you see the eyes of the people, it’s incredible. That’s the best sign you can get: you don’t have to win, you just need to put all that you have in, really throw everything on the pitch and the people of Liverpool love you. We celebrate life, we celebrate the season, we celebrate our competitions, we celebrate the championship [of 2020].

On the season…

It’s an unbelievable season. What the boys did is unbelievable, what the coaches did is unbelievable. The concentration we kept up, the level we kept, unbelievable. All good. Now I have a holiday!

On his final message…

I love you all! And I’m not drunk, not a little bit, just emotional!
