Speaking after the game, Klopp insisted he is determined to put things right from last year’s heart-break in Kiev as his side face either Ajax or Tottenham in the Champions League final on 1 June.
“I said to the boys, ‘I think it’s impossible but because it’s you we have a chance.’ And we believed in this chance,” he said.
“We didn’t compare it with Istanbul or whatever. We said from the beginning, we want to create our own history – not because we are not happy about having the history of the club, no, because we need new chapters obviously. And the boys did it already, that’s unbelievable.
“I know what people say about me and losing finals, that’s absolutely right and OK and everything. But it’s the fourth final in that time as well we are in, that’s pretty special already.
“Last year we really felt we have to go back – we have to go back, we cannot let it stand like this, that’s not possible. Now we get another chance and we will go for that, of course.
“I’m not sure if it will happen again because it’s so special. When I saw the boys after the game and saw the tears in their eyes, that’s football and they are professionals and it’s still like this.
“This club touches you like crazy, it’s like you feel much more than others in these moments. It’s really great, I love it.”
