Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp makes joke about being p****d after the Champions League final

Liverpool’s 2-0 triumph over Tottenham in the Champions League final on Saturday night marked the first trophy of the German’s tenure in Merseyside.

The Reds were awarded a penalty in the opening minute after Sadio Mane’s cross struck Moussa Sissoko’s outstretched right arm, with Mohamed Salah converting the spot-kick.

The ensuing 85 minutes were largely underwhelming as both sides looked off the boil after a three-week break.

But super-sub Divock Origi popped up in the 87th minute to clinch the club’s sixth European Cup and begin celebrations on the Wanda Metropolitano turf.

Klopp is known as the life and soul of the party, and it was put to him by BT Sport’s Kelly after the game that following German cup victories the manager is usually drenched in beer.

“Normally 20 minutes after the game I am half p****d,” joked Klopp, who said the side have a long night ahead of them.

“But now I have only had water!”

Klopp also swore following Liverpool’s semi-final win over Barcelona, calling his players “f****** mentality giants”.

Anchor Gary Lineker refused to apologise to viewers on that ocassion and once again endorsed Klopp’s visceral comments, gauging the emotion correctly.

Reflecting more generally on his side’s journey and achievement, the German said: “I am so happy for the boys all these people, and my family.

“They suffer for me, they deserve it more than anybody.

“Did you ever see a team like, this, fighting with no fuel in the tank? And we have a keeper who makes difficult things look easy.
