An emotional Jurgen Klopp found it difficult to say farewell as he was reduced to tears after his final home game in charge of Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp was given a rapturous reception following a 3-2 victory over Werder Bremen at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, which ensured Dortmund sealed a place in the UEFA Europa League.

The charismatic coach will attempt to end his seven-year Dortmund reign by winning the DFB-Pokal final against Wolfsburg next weekend, but before then he was able to sign off with a win in the Bundesliga.

Shinji Kagawa, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan struck in the first half to ensure Klopp’s men ended a season in which they had battled relegation by surging up to seventh place.

The 47-year-old was given an incredible ovation as he embarked on a lap of honour and said it was hard to say goodbye to the supporters who worship him.

He said: “I am at peace with all people. It was not easy, I had tears in my eyes. I love this stadium.

“There were plenty of opportunities there for the game to be decided earlier. But who am I to complain today?”
