If you lose, you can not stop. So while he is cool, he tries to make his players work and follow the pathway where he wants them to be.

"We always read about how players have a dream to play for one of the great Spanish clubs". I hope we can give the club and the supporters, and of course ourselves, the win over Real Madrid, " said the Netherlands global.

"You have to expect he is brilliant, like he was as a player".

Klopp has the chance to become only the fourth manager in the club's long history to win a European Cup, following in the hallowed footsteps of Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Rafael Benitez.

I actually told Madrid to take Steve McManaman quickly...

I think this has made him a success. But in the end, the manager [Vicente del Bosque] decided to choose another team and I had to respect that.

To do that he will have to reverse his appalling record in finals which has seen him lose his last five, including in the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich.

What makes this such a fascinating final is that should that happen and Liverpool race into a lead, there's still the belief that Madrid have the ability to chase them down and Premier League side have the tendency to give up chances. "I am really happy to be here".

"If a lot of people think Zinedine Zidane has not a lot of tactical knowledge, and then people think the same about me, that would be really amusing".

"The club have won the competition a few times so it is the DNA of the club to win trophies".

"If we win the competition then the road to Kiev plus the final would be one of the most exceptional rides ever", Klopp told Liverpool's website.

"I don't feel we play with that pressure that we came close, " Wijnaldum added. That's what he is doing; trying to learn and to be better every year.

"We have had now two weeks to prepare that game and everything is clear". Four? So only in six games you can drop points.

It might not be overstating things to say that Liverpool may need to be two goals up going into the final 30 minutes of the game if they want to lift the Cup. Knowing Liverpool as a club, the people I had spoken to about Liverpool also, I knew Liverpool belongs to the Champions League.

During a conversation with ex-Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler previewing the 2018 UCL decider in Kiev, Ukraine, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said there was a view around that Marcelo "could not defend", while pointing out that despite issues in their team, Madrid had been hugely successful in recent years due to their attacking prowess.
