Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool’s special moment after the Champions League triumph


Jurgen Klopp revealed the most memorable moment he remembers Liverpool’s Champions League final victory over Tottenham last season.

The Reds secured their sixth European Cup triumph in Madrid last June with a 2-0 victory over the Spurs at Wanda Metropolitano, home of Atletico Madrid.

It was the first major trophy Liverpool had won during Klopp’s tenure, before winning the Super Cup and Club World Cup in the months that followed.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in Madrid from the penalty spot, before substitute Divock Origi secured the victory with a goal in the final moments.

And it’s Origi’s shot, after hanging onto a pass from Joel Matip, that Klopp admits he remembers this historic match the most.

“The wonderful goal of Divock Origi,” Klopp told BT Sport, when asked about the only memory that stands out a year later.

He added, “It was not our best game, it was not Tottenham’s best game.

“It was a final, we had to learn that as a team, we had to win these kinds of average games.

“We had to accept that if we are not doing well, we have to do something else to win.

“When Divock scored the goal, I knew tonight that it was enough to win. It was my biggest memory.

“It was work done and I really loved it.”
