Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hide his pride after watching Liverpool qualify for the Champions League proper with a 6-3 aggregate win over Hoffenheim.
The Reds took a 2-1 lead into the second leg, before powering to a 4-2 win at Anfield to secure their name in the hate for the group stage of the competition.
“I do not have enough words it is amazing,” Klopp told BT Sport. It is 14 months of the hardest work and it feels amazing. I can’t find another word.
“A big big big compliment to my team. They played a perfect opening half an hour. I asked them at half-time to remember the feeling they had at 3-0 and to put it away.
“But credit to Hoffenheim they played football and continued to enjoy the game. They can score two goals because of their quality.
“We didn’t think we were the favourites but everyone else did so we had the pressure but the boys did good.”
