Liverpool beat Tottenham to grab Uefa Champions League
Liverpool beat Tottenham in the Uefa champions league final in Madrid to claim their sixth league in Europe. The evening saw the Reds play premiere league counterpart in an all English Final match held in Spain.
The Wanda Metropolitano pitch got the noise of the night after a penalty kick was awarded to the Reds. Sissoko was caught blocking Sadio Mane’s pass with his arm inside the box.
Salah gave Liverpool early lead in the final after converting the penalty to a goal while Divock Origi who came in for Robert Firmino scored the second goal of the final match towards the end of ninety minutes.
The Champions league victory broke the long season trophy drought both for Jurgen Klopp, the players and the club.
In an interview with Liverpool after the victory, in Klop’s word:
ICYMI: Man City Retain EPL As Salah, Mane And Auba Get Golden Boot
“We spoke two days ago about my ‘unlucky’ career somehow. When I hear Liverpool win Tottenham in the Uefa champions league final in Madrid to claim their sixth league in Europe. The evening saw the Reds play premiere league counterpart in an all English Final match held in Spain.it I think, ‘Yeah, people could see it like this’, but I don’t feel it, to be honest because I always see the way to a final as well because that’s of course important for me as well.
I think my life is much better than I ever expected it, so winning something is good, it’s cool, but it’s for all the other people. I’m not so much in it, I’m much more really in development but I get it, we have to win things, so for us it’s really important that people don’t ask now all the time about not winning or winning things.
Now we won something and we will carry on. We want to win things, 100 per cent. I’ve said it, this is only the start for this group. It’s still a wonderful age group, they all have the best times in their careers ahead of them so that’s big. For me, I’m really happy. I have a lot of silver medals and now I have a golden one so it’ll be next to the silver medals in my house and that’s cool. But mostly I’m happy for all the other people.
When you see it now in the dressing room, everybody feels it but you don’t really know what to do with it. But tomorrow I’m really sure when we drive through the city, then we all will realise what these boys have done and that’s the best moment, for sure……”
