The Reds assistant manager is leaving after 10 years to take charge of RB Salzburg.

He told liverpoolfc.com: "It's overwhelming how everybody is reacting and the messages from the fans, saying goodbye to people here in the club. It's 10 years of my life. I feel very grateful, blessed. It's a club I love. I didn't want anything to go different from how it went; losing a final and the year after winning a final. We created so many special games together. The feeling is strange.

"It's the last day here at AXA, we go tomorrow to Anfield. The last three weeks is the first time I felt calmness, no pressure. We came third, there's no final anymore to play, (so) I just soak it in. I look forward to it (Sunday)."

On manager Jurgen Klopp, he said: "Yeah, forever grateful. Where would I be without him, no? He took me back in the role. Our friendship is big, our commitment is even bigger. Our loyalty is massive. Together strong. The only promise is he will be there anyway in the next years. He means the world."

On Salzburg, he said: "Really proud, really pleased. It's a beautiful city, it's class. The club is young, it's ambitious, it's confident they want to do it their own way. Passionate about what they are doing and how they want to build. Clear identity. PSV Eindhoven, Porto, Liverpool Football Club, Salzburg. I'm just really proud. It's a nice step, a good step.

"I will try with all, together with Vitor (Matos) of course and together with all the people there, to build something, to create some memories there together with the fans. I can't wait to start; first a little bit of holiday and then we go with all we have."
