Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to Bill Kenwright, calling him “a massive heart for the city” after the Everton chairman’s death.

Klopp, speaking ahead of his side’s Europa League game with Toulouse, also paid tribute to Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton.

Klopp said of Kenwright: “Obviously a massive heart for the city and for Everton.

“But the message he gave in his Hillsborough speech I heard about.

“They picked the wrong city and the wrong mums. That’s a really, really strong message.”

And the Reds boss said of Sir Bobby Charlton: “I knew him before I arrived here (in England) he was one of the biggest personalities in football.”

Ahead of the Toulouse game, Klopp also confirmed that Andy Robertson has had surgery on his shoulder injury which could see him out for up to 12 weeks.

This is alongside both Spanish midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajectic.

But Cody Gakpo is now back in full training.

Liverpool come into Thursday’s match against the French side, having won the Merseyside derby on Saturday and top of Group E winning their opening matches against LASK and Union SG.

Victory at Anfield would put them in pole position to qualify for the knock-out stages, even with three matches left.
