Klopp in disbelief after incredible turnaround

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he cannot remember watching a game quite like his side’s epic 4-0 win over Barcelona to reach the Champions League final.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, Liverpool did the unthinkable as doubles from Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum gave them a 4-3 aggregate victory at Anfield, becoming only the third side in the competition’s history to overcome a three-goal deficit in the semi-final.

Klopp was almost lost for words as he tried to express his feelings after the game, admitting we may never see such a game again.

He told BT Sport “The whole game, the whole performance was too much. It was overwhelming. I watched in my life so many football games but I can’t remember many like this.

“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.

“It’s 10 past 10, most of your children are probably in bed but these boys are f*****g talented giants. It’s unbelievable. Fine me if you want. I’m not native so I don’t have better words for it.”
