Liverpool boss Klopp: Champions League final not about my reputation

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists their Champions League final against Real Madrid isn’t about him.

After Liverpool bounced back from their disappointment four years ago to win the competition by beating Tottenham in Madrid 12 months later, Klopp now has the chance win the trophy for a second time.

That would put him in an elite bracket of managers but Klopp insists it would be the players who would deserve the credit.

“My reputation – I couldn’t care less,” he said. “I forget these things as quickly as they happen.

“I will not win the Champions League, no chance, but if the boys can solve it for us it will be great.

“Thre (finals) in five years is exceptional because this competition is really difficult. It is really special. We really want to give it a proper go and we will see.”

Liverpool go into the game on the back of the disappointment of narrowly losing out to Manchester City in the Premier League title race last weekend.

Klopp said: “We are all in a good mood. If you are healthy, as the boys obviously are, life gives you opportunities again and again and in this case it is the Champions League final.

“Nobody feels the pain from Sunday any more. We are really just looking forward to this game against an incredibly strong, experienced opponent.”
