Jurgen Klopp is targeting more silverware with Liverpool after landing the Champions League trophy.
Jurgen Klopp feels Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham in Saturday’s Champions League final could mark the start of a dynasty at Anfield (Liverpool 5/2 – Premier League 2019/20 outright).
Neither side were at their best during the contest at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, but Liverpool took an early lead as Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot in just the second minute after Moussa Sissoko was adjudged to have handled in the area.
Liverpool were happy to sit back after that early strike, but in truth, Tottenham rarely threatened and on the few occasions when they did breach the Reds defence, goalkeeper Alisson was on hand to keep them at bay.
Substitute Divock Origi then struck what proved a killer second goal in the 87th minute to seal Liverpool’s sixth Champions League crown and Klopp’s first piece of silverware since arriving at Anfield in 2015.
The German coach feels the victory has capped a hugely successful season for Liverpool, who picked up a club-record 97 points in the Premier League, only to be pipped to the title by Manchester City (Man City 4/6 – Premier League outright).
Indeed, Klopp feels Saturday’s triumph could mark the start of a successful spell for Liverpool both domestically and in Europe.
“This is only the start for this group, they’re a wonderful age group,” Klopp told reporters. “That’s big, I have a lot of silver medals and now I have a golden one. That’s cool.
“Everybody feels it but tomorrow I’m sure when we drive through the city we will realise what we have done.
“Now you can say it, 97 points in the Premier League and to be Champions League winners is incredible.”
