shocked and saddened many people around the world.

Liverpool

boss

Jurgen Klopp

has now joined the ranks of those who have reacted to the death of

Diego Maradona

and paid tribute to the Argentine football legend.

Klopp spoke about Maradona at a press conference before

Liverpool

match against

Brighton

.

“The best in my lifetime, which I watched most often.”

He said

“Maybe that’s not right anymore because I watched Cristiano and Lionel a few times now as well. But during my own playing career he was the standout player.

“His life shows how nice life can be when you are a world-class footballer, and how difficult it can be as well.

“He was a very, very impressive figure. I met him once, which for a player of my level was like meeting the Pope, to be honest! It was really, really special.

“Football will miss him, I will miss him, and you can see that with the reaction all over the world. If we would have shown our love for him without wanting to have a selfie, if we had shown him the respect he deserved while he was still alive, then I think we could have helped him.”
