Liverpool boss says no other team has given Napoli as much trouble this season as they did.

Jurgen Klopp is proud of his squad’s Champions League performance, knocking-out Napoli from the competition. With a single goal from Mo Salah at Anfield, Liverpool clinched the victory and eliminated the group leaders.

“It’s unbelievable,” Klopp told BT Sport, as quoted by the Standard. “I’m not sure a manager was ever more proud of a team than I am at the moment.

“Mo scored an unbelievable goal and Ali made a save – I have no idea how you can make a save like this.

“Together with the crowd, together with the stadium, it was just outstanding. We played an outstanding game.

“Watch all the Napoli games and find a team who caused them the problems we caused them tonight.”

Klopp’s side ended up in second place of Group C and admitted that they did not have the greatest group stage run, losing half of their games.

“The only good thing about the first game at Napoli was they have no clue who we are. We were like our ugly brother or something.

“If we went out, we wouldn’t have gone out tonight, we would’ve gone out three or four weeks ago – at Napoli where we deserved to lose, at Belgrade where we deserved to lose.

“It was just wild and we were ready for that. What a game. Unbelievable. That’s Anfield life.”
