Klopp used Sevilla loss to inspire European title tilt, reveals Henderson

A big factor for Klopp was the club's acceptance of exactly how he is as a person, and the culture at Liverpool of being an old fashioned football club, as opposed to a worldwide business corporation which is often associated with United.

And the England global has explained how their thrilling journey this season has been driven by a strong sense of collectiveness among Jürgen Klopp's players.

Jordan Henderson revealed that Jurgen Klopp used the pain of Liverpool's 2016 Europa League final loss to inspire this season's run to the Champions League showpiece.

Klopp was keen to underline the Brazilian's quality, saying: "You saw it, everybody saw it, seems obvious: "Marcelo, what an offensive player, but.he can't defend".

Benitez is still revered on the red half of Merseyside after guiding his team to a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over AC Milan in Istanbul at the end of a game in which his side had trailed 3-0 at half-time.

'The Tottenham recreation I used to be indignant.

"It's probably the strongest [team spirit] I've been involved in". If we got to another final we would be ready.

"There are opportunities for us, we know that - and they know it as well", Klopp said.

Liverpool have played some sensational football this season and are top scorers in the Champions League with 40 goals.

"I try not to (think about it) anymore".

"Real need four chances to score twice".

That feeling of unity around the club has not been restricted to within the dressing room, either, as players and supporters have shared several special moments throughout the campaign.

"Not only at Anfield, where we have had some special nights, especially in the Champions League, but away from home".

"Two positions which can be actually, actually tough to play for Liverpool: goalkeeper and centre half, he mentioned to The Mirror". We achieved what we achieved - they talk about the Miracle of Istanbul - but this team is better. We had players who worked very hard, we had a good balance.

And having a prominent place in the club's glorious annals is a prospect that excites the captain.

"All the teams said it: against Juve, Real were lucky, against Bayern, they were lucky, but they are the third time in a row in the final, the fourth time in five years, so what does that say?"
