Donned in a Liverpool shirt, the German coach chatted with Reds legends Graeme Souness, Phil Thompson and Kenny Dalglish.
As the interview came to a close, the 53-year-old battled through tears and stated: "I have no real words. I never would have thought I would feel like this.
"I'm completely overwhelmed. It's just...I'm sorry gentlemen," before leaving the room.
Fans have reacted to the tear-jerking interview and they're full of love for Klopp.

Elated - then saw Klopp crying and I was in tears, now back to elated. Is this what it feels like to be an Arsenal fan every week?

In the interview, Klopp also paid tribute to Dalglish as well as former club captain Steven Gerrard.
"This is for Kenny you had to wait. Stevie you too. I know how much this means to everyone."
'It's for our supporters, it's for you out there.' :heart::trophy:

Captain Jordan Henderson also spoke to Sky Sports in the broadcast and it was clear to see he was also in ecstasy.
