Former Borussia Dortmund manager and current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp spoke about Champions League final to media.

Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media about the matchup with Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the Stade De France on 29th May.

Liverpool lost the Premier League to Manchester City with only one point on the league table. However, Klopp said that they’re already moved on from that and players are all focused.

“It is a Champions League final, so we see that and nobody feels the pain from Sunday anymore,” he said.

“We are really just looking forward to this game against an incredibly strong opponent, the most experienced opponent you can probably get in this competition.

“We don’t think because we won two competitions now and were close in a third competition that we wouldn’t care about that. That is, of course, not the case.

“You never know how often you will reach a Champions League final, so you better use the few opportunities you get.

“For us, it is now really special, the third time in the last five years. That is really special with this group.”

Liverpool and Real Madrid met each other in the final of Champions League in the season 2017-2018. However, Liverpool lost their key player Mo Salah in the first half as Sergio Ramos’ foul injured him.

Reflecting to that final Jurgen Klopp said: “That was a harsh night for us, it was really tough to take given the circumstances, the way we conceded the goals and the injury of Salah of course,” he admitted.

“I don’t believe in revenge, i understand it as well, it’s just I don’t think revenge is a fantastic idea.

“I understand that Salah said he wants to put it right, and I want to put it right.

“But, it’s all fine between me and us and Real Madrid. If we win, it won’t be because of what happened in 2018.”
