In an astounding turnaround of the tie, the ‘reds’ beat the Catalans by 4-0 and go on to the final of the league, with three weight absences: Salah, Keita and Firmino.
At the end of the match, the coach of the ‘reds’ was pleased with the surprising showing of his team and admitted never to have seen an equal turnaround.
“I watched in my life so many football games but I can’t remember many like this.,” Jurgen Klopp began.
The coach also revealed the message that was passed to the players before the game. “Before the game, I told the boys that it was impossible but that, as they were, it could happen,” adding that “Winning is already difficult but winning with a clean sheet – I don’t know how the boys did it. I saw James Milner crying after the game on the pitch, it means so much to all of us.
“There are more important things in the world but creating this kind of atmosphere is so special.
“The mix of potential with the heart is incredible, I’ve never seen it, it was one of those games that we had to have a lot of confidence in. Origi and Shaq did not play much and make a performance like this was very important for us and for them They showed that everything is possible in football, “he said.
As for Alisson Becker’s performance, Klopp said the Reds’ keeper “caught everything, it was a real wall. There are spectacular goalkeepers, but he always takes the ball.
In the final, Jürgen Klopp’s side will play with either the Ajax Dutch team or Tottenham, who meet on Wednesday in Amsterdam with the home side ahead of a 1-0 win in London.
