Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp: What Real Madrid did is amazing
The Liverpool coach said that Real Madrid’s “remontada” against Manchester City was “incredible”, and that facing the royal team in the Champions League final was “a destiny”, after what happened in 2018.
“When we lost the final in 2018, the solution for me was to play another final the following year against them, but it was against Tottenham. It seems that this is destiny,” the German coach said in the press conference before the match against Tottenham.
Klopp, who managed to eliminate Villarreal last Tuesday, touched on the wonderful confrontation between Real Madrid and Manchester City, saying: “It was strange and unfortunate for City, but what Real Madrid did was amazing. They managed to qualify at the expense of Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and City.” If you eliminate these three, you definitely deserve to be in the final. It will be a great match.”
“I’m happy to be in the final and have a chance to win the title, but before that we have a few games ahead, so it would be good if the questions about Madrid stop until then. We will work on the final from May 22 to 28, not before,” Klopp added.
