Jurgen Klopp says he’s ‘half pissed’ in Champions League final interview

He enjoyed that one

Before Saturday night’s Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, Jurgen Klopp had never won a European trophy.

He had lost a Champions League final as Borussia Dortmund manager against bitter rivals Bayern Munich, and shortly after joining Liverpool he lost a Europa League final against permanent owners of the Europa League, Sevilla.

He lost last year’s Champions League final to Real Madrid – a 3-1 defeat assisted massively by Loris Karius – and for some it looked like he may never win one at all.

On Saturday that all changed though, as his Liverpool side – tougher and better than last year – defeated Spurs 2-0 in an unattractive but incredibly effective performance at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

The celebrations were instantaneous and real, and no one was celebrating more than the German.

After the game, he spoke to Des Kelly of BT Sport and you could tell very quickly that he was having the time of his fucking life.

“It’s 20 minutes after the game – already half pissed – but I think I should get a water,” said Klopp, as Kelly laughed in hysterics next to him.

Thankfully there were no apologies to viewers from BT Sport, because it’s the fucking Champions League and Jurgen Klopp can swear as much as he wants.
