On Klopp's first day in charge at Anfield in October 2015 he modestly declared himself as "a Normal One", in stark contrast to Jose Mourinho's bombastic "Special One" arrival as Chelsea boss a decade earlier.
Yet the German would prove he was anything but normal, becoming the only Liverpool manager to complete the collection of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Club World Cup and Community Shield during his tenure.
Klopp and his team bid farewell to Liverpool at a final farewell party the club held for them to leave England in style. Klopp, who was as emotional as ever, sent a final message to the English club and their fans.
"I know that a lot of people don’t believe when I say I’m running out of energy. I don’t in private life and it’s not that I can’t get up in the morning," he began.
"When I talk about running out of energy, how I understand it, I know you all work hard, and much harder than me, but the difference is that I get watched by the public all the time, which makes it a bit annoying from time to time.
"The main thing is that in my job you cannot do it on 90 per cent. Other jobs you get through it for a week or two. But if you’re the boss, the manager of a club like Liverpool FC, you have to be on top of your game and I feel I’m not any more," he continued.
"I cannot be here as a passenger. Nobody needs a passenger and I’m not doing the job any more," he concluded.
