Jurgen Klopp says it is important Liverpool continue to improve after winning a sixth European Cup with a 2-0 win over Tottenham. Mohamed Salah’s penalty, awarded after only 22 seconds, and a late Divock Origi strike settled the Champions League final in Madrid, much to the delight of the Reds boss.
Klopp has finally won a trophy at the seventh attempt and now has a thirst for more. “It took a while obviously,” he said. “We tried a lot of times but it’s important of course that we develop and improve. It’s always like this but we are doing good steps. This little mark helps a lot, so now we can carry on.”
Klopp also paid tribute to his players after securing the win that helps to make up for losing last year’s final, and just missing out on the Premier League title. “I’m so happy for the boys. I’m so happy for all these people, I’m so happy for my family, they suffer every year when we go to the final last game of the season and we lose it,” Klopp added.
“Did you ever see a team like this? Fighting with absolutely no fuel in the tank any more. “We have a goalkeeper that makes difficult things look easy, very nice thank you very much. This is unbelievable, what a night, the night will be much better now. “It’s really the best night of my life professional-wise.”
