Liverpool’s Champions League win is best night of our professional lives – Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said winning the Champions League is the “best night of our professional lives”.
The Reds beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid thanks to an early Mohamed Salah penalty and a late Divock Origi strike.
It is their first major trophy since Klopp arrived at Anfield in 2015.
“Did you ever see a team like this, fighting with no fuel in the tank? I am so happy for the boys, all these people and my family. They suffer for me, they deserve it more than anybody,” he said.
“It was an intense season with the most beautiful finish I ever could have imagined.”
Liverpool, who lost last season’s final to Real Madrid, finished on 97 points in this season’s Premier League, but finished second to Manchester City.
“I feel mostly relief, relief for my family. The last six times we flew on holiday with only a silver medal it didn’t feel too cool.
