Travel issues related to the global pandemic meant the Liverpool boss had to stay at home in England, while his mother was buried on Tuesday.
And following the passing of his mother, Liverpool supporters on social media have discovered Klopp's gesture on the touchline when Roberto Firmino put his team ahead against Spurs last month.
A Liverpool fan uploaded a clip of Klopp celebrating, accompanied with the caption: "Now knowing what he was going through during this and the way he looked up to the heavens."

The Reds played Spurs nine days after the death of his mother. She died on January 19, but hadn't been reported until February 10.
Been thinking back to that today since seeing the news and it truly brings deeper meaning to this celebration, at the time I thought it was a release, but unlike Jurgen to be so happy with a goal to put us just 1-0 up, with the whole second half to play, but still subdued with it

I genuinely thought he was just relieved to see the team score after so long, this clip now hits a whole lot different:disappointed::broken_heart:

thats the horrible effects of social media. we only comment on what we see , and we dont really know whats happening behind the scenes. i dont give a damn about this season anymore, plenty more things are more important beyond football. My condolences go to Klopp and his family.

They went onto beat Jose Mourinho's team 3-1 on an emotional night for Klopp, who was secretly going through a very difficult time.
When you think about how Klopp has been recently and looking tired, agitated and on edge you can totally understand why now.
This must be so heartbreaking to go through, he can't even go to the funeral of his own mother. I can't get my head round that, must be awful.

Speaking about his late mother, the German said: "She meant everything to me.
"She was a real mum in the best sense of the word," added the 53-year-old, who last visited his mother on her 80th birthday in Germany.
He continued: "As a believer in Christ, I know she is in a better place now.
"The fact that I can't be at the funeral is due to the terrible times.
"As soon as the circumstances allow, we will hold a wonderful commemoration that is appropriate to it."
