He said: "Danke @kloppo can’t thank this man enough for what he’s done for @liverpoolfc over the past 9 years given me and every other red memories to last a lifetime.

"He’s the messiah to Liverpool fans of my generation. I told him all this as you can see on them pictures. Told him I love him like every other red does. Funny how starstruck I am in that last photo. Still can’t believe Jurgen knew who I was and came over to me."

Celebrity fans and followers took to the comments to praise the two after the update. Former Reds captain Jamie Redknapp said: "Legends."

Goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, who is also leaving the club, said: "What a night."
