Jurgen Klopp reveals why he chose Liverpool over Man Utd and others

Klopp is yet to win silverware with Liverpool, but Saturday's decider in Kiev will be his third since taking over.

And the England worldwide has explained how their thrilling journey this season has been driven by a strong sense of collectiveness among Jürgen Klopp's players.

Liverpool have had British players such as Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andy Robertson all playing pivotal roles in their journey to the Champions League final.

"You have a chance against them and they are not bothered".

Despite losing the second leg 2-0, the Bundesliga outfit made it through to the final at Wembley, where they were eventually beaten 2-1 by rivals Bayern Munich.

"And I thought "wow, that's not the game I love". I don't know why, but I can take the pressure", he added. "If we got to another final we'd be ready". It's like you can never been good enough, whatever you do, they still say "we need a world class replacement".

"I try not to (think about it) anymore".

"When they told me about the problems they had I thought "OK, yeah, I am probably the really right manager for that club".

Jurgen Klopp reveals why he chose Liverpool over Man Utd and others

"We've worked really well together as a team and hopefully for the next few years we can start building and become successful again".

Progress in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, past Manchester City and AS Roma respectively, was celebrated after full-time with joyous scenes at Etihad Stadium and Stadio Olimpico.

"Two positions which can be actually, actually tough to play for Liverpool: goalkeeper and centre half, he mentioned to The Mirror".

"It's not that easy making these things against Real Madrid".

Whilst Klopp may not publicly be stating that Marcelo is a weakness, Liverpool will be well aware of his tendency to push forward too far and abandon his defensive responsibilities.

"That's what we are trying to do, create our own history", he stated.

"And then in 20 or 30 years' time, hopefully people can look back on this team and say how good it was and how special it was what they achieved".

"And, in the end, we have to be there in the decisive moments, we have to score when we have the chances".
