The Liverpool coach says he is delighted after winning the UEFA Champions League title and he’s proud of his players.

Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in yesterday’s UEFA Champions League Final.

This is the sixth Champions League title for the Reds and the first one for manager Jurgen Klopp.

“I cannot really describe it because I cried a little bit as well because it’s so overwhelming what the people are doing,” he told the club’s official website.

“When you have direct eye contact and you see how much it means to them that’s touching, to be honest.”

“It’s brilliant,” he added.

“Thank God the weather changed in a positive direction so we are having a wonderful time here.”

“It’s really special,” he said.

“I don’t know exactly how many people live in Liverpool but there’s not a lot of space for fans and supporters of other clubs, so it’s incredible!”

He asked: “This team is really doing so well and if you are a young kid which team would you support?”

“There are not a lot of other options and opportunities apart from Liverpool so it’s really nice to see.”

“You see in their eyes how much it means. It’s unbelievable and it’s so intense. Today, wow! It’s crazy,” the coach concluded.
