Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken openly about his struggles through the latest coronavirus lockdown.
It was revealed last month that the German manager’s mother Elisabeth had passed away in January, but Klopp was unable to return to the country for her funeral due to the ongoing travel restrictions.
Just a day after her funeral he spoke in an interview with DAZN Brasil, and was asked if he thinks he has changed as a person as a result of the pandemic.
And he replied: “I don’t think about it too often. Because as long as the situation isn’t changing, it makes no sense.
“When you think about it, yes, it’s massive, the difference. Could I have imagined one year ago that my life would change like this and our life would change like this? Not at all.
“I had no idea about it and it’s really tough for all of us. And for us as well, really hard.
“Work helps, obviously, when you can go to work, and will do the stuff you love, that helps, obviously.
“But my family is at home and all these things. It’s months in lockdown, they can’t have their normal life as well. And we all get recharged when we go home, usually.
“You go home and you have family you love, friends you love, and if you see them, they all give you energy and these kind of things. And we all don’t have that. And it’s really tough.”
They now have a much-needed week off before they take on bottom side Sheffield United on Sunday ahead of a clash against Chelsea the following Thursday.
