Liverpool book place in Champions League final
Liverpool have reached the Champions League final for the second successive season.
The Reds lost out to Real Madrid in last year’s final but will be hoping for a very different outcome on June 1st vs Tottenham.
However, Liverpool didn’t exactly have the easiest route to the final.
The semi-final draw saw them pitted against Spanish outfit, FC Barcelona.
Jurgen Klopp then took his side to the Nou Camp for the first leg and came away 3-0 down.
Although, Liverpool did look the better side for many periods in the first tie.
Liverpool would then host Barca at Anfield for the reverse fixture and complete a simply outstanding comeback.
Klopp on winning silverware
Liverpool’s comeback vs Barcelona was undoubtedly a great moment for the club and English football.
However, Jurgen Klopp has made a rather bold claim about moments such as that.
According to the German, a moment like the Barca victory is worth more than silverware:
“We all have to make the best of the circumstances that we have. That’s what we try. If that leads to silverware then wonderful, but we cannot do more.
“This season has been a year full of wonderful moments together. Looking forward to games, enjoying games and last Tuesday was the icing on the cake so far. Wow.
“That’s exactly the picture we want to draw for the outside world – this is Liverpool, it’s possible here, it’s possible in this club and in this city with the people around. That’s the picture. A moment like this is worth more than silverware.”As quoted by AS.
While this could well just be Klopp’s way of trying to soften the blow should Liverpool fail to capture the Premier League or Champions League this campaign, it is still a bit of an odd thing to say.
