Trent reveals what happened when Klopp told squad he's to quit Liverpool: 'It started off like a normal day'

Jurgen Klopp is set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season. The manager announced the news to the press in January and, as it turns out, he informed the players about his decision on the same day.

So what happened on that day? Trent Alexander-Arnold recalls, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo: "It started off like a normal day.

"Then the manager called a meeting at 10:30am which we had never had before so everyone was like 'what's going on?' He came into the changing rooms and told us there was news breaking as he was speaking. So we found out as players at the same time as everyone else but he told us personally.

"He said that this has to be his last season, that he needed a break to spend time with his family. I didn't know what to do. You think 'is this a joke?'

"None of us were expecting it. After he left the room, everyone was just sat there thinking 'has that actually just happened?' Then you have to get on with it, going out to train in an hour's time, doing your job."
