The Reds manager is excited to compete in his second successive UEFA Champions League Final with his club.

For the second time in one year, Liverpool is in the UEFA Champions League Final.

Last year the team lost 3-1 against Real Madrid, but now they are hopeful they can beat fellow English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.

And for Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, this match is very important, and he says he doesn’t think about anything else right now.

“I try everything to be as successful as possible,” the German told the club’s official website.

“I live 100 percent for the boys, with the boys, what we do for the club. I think that’s leadership in the first case.”

“As a leader, you cannot be the last who comes in and the first who goes out; you don’t always have to be the first coming in or the last going out, but you have to be an example,” he said.

“We have enough confidence and that’s very important for a leader. If I would expect from myself that I know everything and I’m the best in everything, I couldn’t have confidence.”

He commented: “But I don’t expect that. I know I’m good in a couple of things, really good in a few things, and that’s enough.”

“My confidence is big enough that I can really let people grow next to me, it’s no problem.”

“I need experts around me,” he added.

“It’s really very important that you are empathetic, that you try to understand the people around you, and that you give real support to the people around you. Then everybody can act.”
