Liverpool fans praise Richarlison after seeing what he posted about Jurgen Klopp's farewell

Liverpool fans praise Richarlison after seeing what he posted about Jurgen Klopp's farewell

Richarlison sent a touching message to his former Liverpool adversary.

Former Everton forward Richarlison put rivalries aside to pay tribute to outgoing Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp - and fans loved it.

The Brazilian, who signed for Tottenham from the Toffees in a £60 million deal during the summer of 2022, played for Everton for four years from 2018.

It was a tough start to life in north London for the striker, who was open about his struggles with mental health and had groin surgery in November.

His fortunes changed significantly around the turn of the year, and he ended the season with 11 goals in 28 appearances - although did miss the final few weeks of the campaign with a calf problem.

That meant he watched from the sidelines as Tottenham beat Sheffield United 3-0 on Sunday to secure fifth place and an automatic qualification spot for next season's Europa League.

After the game concluded, he also made sure to send a message to his former adversary Klopp, who is departing Liverpool following the final match of the season.

Taking to Instagram, the Brazilian wrote: "Despite the rivalry that was only on the pitch, you are one of the best managers I have ever seen.

"May God bless your journey."

Although Klopp now does have Instagram, he hasn't yet replied to Richarlison - although will have much more free time in the coming weeks before attending the Champions League final between former club Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid at Wembley on June 1.

And in response to Richarlison's comments, Liverpool fans praised the ex-Everton star.

One fan joked: "Wow, I no longer hate him. That's nice of him."

A second added: "Fair play to him. I would NEVER ever have expected him to say that and in public as well."

A third wrote: "Glad he said this. Respect him much more now."

A fourth said: "That is the power of Klopp, players of other teams could see the man and manager he was... Respect to Richarlison."

And a fifth summarised: "Aside from the rivalry, I've always loved the lad."

While another simply said: "Wow I was not familiar."
