Why Jurgen Klopp could miss Anfield farewell against Wolves

The moment every Liverpool fan has been dreading for months will arrive on Sunday, May 19, as Jurgen Klopp takes charge of his final game with the Reds.

The German announced that he would be leaving Liverpool at the end of January, a decision which has yet to sink in at all among the club’s supporters.

Arne Slot will have the unenviable task of filling the void left by the 56-year-old, who has just two games in the Liverpool hot seat before his time with the Reds comes to an emotional conclusion.

First up, a trip to Aston Villa next Monday, followed by a home clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers the following Sunday. There is unlikely to be a dry eye in Anfield after the full-time whistle against Old Gold.

However, Klopp’s exit could still get a little tricky and there is a chance he may not be able to make it to the backline for his final game on Merseyside.


As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Klopp could actually miss the clash with Wolves, but only if he receives a yellow card during the match against Aston Villa on May 13.

Klopp has been booked twice this term and is just one yellow away from a one-game Premier League ban with a warning at Villa Park meaning he could not sit on the sidelines during his latest outing at Anfield.

While Liverpool now have nothing to play for having secured Champions League football and third place, you can never bet against the fiery Klopp getting a booking.

He will need to be on his best behavior in the Midlands next Monday to avoid an unfortunate exit at Liverpool.

Klopp’s penultimate home game in charge could not have gone much better, with Liverpool winning 4-2 against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson, Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott guided the Reds to a first win in two games, even if Spurs’ two second-half goals led to a slightly nervy finish.
