Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson says Champions League success would not have been possible without manager Jurgen Klopp. Liverpool secured their sixth European Cup and Klopp’s first trophy throughout his career as they beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid on Saturday night, and Henderson hailed the influence of the German tactician.
“Like I’ve said before, without the manager this isn’t possible,” he said. “What he’s done since he’s come to this football club is unbelievable, not only the players that he’s brought in to make the squad stronger, the players that were already here he’s made better.

“He’s created a special dressing room, so all the praise and everything goes to the manager.” Like Klopp, Henderson also says it is important that the Reds kick on from lifting the Champions League and build on the win by picking up more silverware.
“This is the best moment of my life – apart from my children. This is what I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid,” he added. “It’s not about me, it’s not about me captaining and lifting the trophy, it’s special of course for me, but it’s about this football club and these players. It’s about this manager and now we need to keep going and kick on.”
