Jurgen Klopp┬áhas sympathised with “sensational” Tottenham and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Klopp’s Liverpool side earned their sixth European crown on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in Madrid.

The Reds became only the third team to ever lose a European Cup final one season before winning it the next to crown a phenomenal campaign.

Tottenham will hope to emulate those achievements, with Klopp noting that Pochettino’s side “should be really proud” of what they achieved.

“I only want to enjoy that we won it,” he said.

“All the rest is not important.

“It’s for all the people around the world, in the stadium. They are with us and they are now celebrating like crazy and we will have this tomorrow in Liverpool and we will celebrate together (at the parade).

“We will have a sensational night. I feel mostly relieved, to be honest.

“Relieved for my family because they are pretty close to me, as you can imagine.

“Six times we always flew on holiday with a silver medal. That doesn’t feel too cool.

“And this is completely different, so this is for them as well.

“It’s for our supporters, of course, but also our owners as well because they never put real pressure on us.

“They appreciate the development; they see the steps we make. It’s for them as well. It’s great.

“For the players, we were all pretty much crying on the pitch because it was so emotional, it was so big.

“It meant so much to us but I should have probably said, first of all, I know how Tottenham feels better than anybody else in the world.

“They played a sensational season as well and they would have deserved it as well.

“But tonight we scored goals in the right moment, but I told Poch directly after the game that he should be really proud of what they did this year as well.”
