LeBron James Thanks Jurgen Klopp After Liverpool Manager Announces He Will Step Down After This Season

James is a part owner of Liverpool and often shows his support for the club on social media

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James joined the soccer world in thanking longtime Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp for his time with The Reds after he announced Friday morning that he will be stepping down at the end of this season.

“THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING AND MORE!!” James wrote on X (formerly Twitter) “You are one helluva manager and you’ll never be forgotten and more importantly YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE!! The Reds will miss you!!”

Klopp, 56, has been with Liverpool since 2015 and led the club to the Premier League title in 2019-20 and the Champions League title in 2018-19.

Liverpool currently sits at the top of the Premier League standings with 17 matches remaining.

“I have to. I will leave the club at the end of the season,” Klopp said in a statement. “I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it or at least try to explain it,” Klopp said in a statement.

“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team. I love the staff. I love everything.”

James owns a two percent stake in Liverpool, and as such, has been a vocal supporter of the club, both in person at matches and from afar by discussing the club in interviews and posting encouraging words on his social media.
