Klopp: The post-Champions League ‘promise’ I made with Pep
Liverpool’s Champions League triumph left Jurgen Klopp ecstatic, emotional and hungry for more after finally getting his hands on silverware and then receiving a call from Premier League adversary Pep Guardiola.
Mohamed Salah’s spot-kick and more heroics from substitute Divock Origi saw the Reds crowned champions of Europe for the sixth time as they brought an outstanding season to a memorable conclusion.
The 2-0 win against Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham saw Klopp end his cup final hoodoo and finally lift a trophy as Liverpool manager – a victory all the sweeter after being pipped to the Premier League crown.
Manchester City won the title by a single point at the end of a gripping title race and their manager was one of the first on the phone after the match.
“A second ago I had Pep Guardiola on the phone,” Klopp said.
“Our head physio (Lee Nobes) worked for Man City at the beginning of the season, but he wanted to win the Champions… no, it’s a joke.
“And we promised each other already that we will kick (each other’s) butts next year again.
“We will go for everything and let’s see if we get something.”
