Liverpool came from 2-0 down at half time to win 3-2 away at Villareal to reach their third Champions League final in five years. The players were in celebratory mood as their efforts in Spain resulted in a chance to win the club’s seventh European crown.
Whilst Klopp joined in with his players’ celebration, he took time out to ensure he texted a few people that played an integral part in the team’s success.
His wife Ulla, who Klopp said was instrumental in convincing him to sign a new contract at the club recently, had already texted him so Klopp replied to her texts.
The next set of messages were sent to two players who played a vital role last season in the Reds’ push to secure Champions League football.
Klopp told Sky Sports News : “I messaged Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips because we wouldn't be there without them.
I remember the final game of last season and they left the pitch with a bandage around the head, cuts on their faces, and that was really a symbol for the whole period. We went through on one leg, with one eye… it was incredible. It was such a tough season."
The situation looked bleak for Klopp’s men when they went through a dreadful spell of six defeats at Anfield, losing to the likes of Burnley, Everton and Brighton.
Dreams of qualifying for the Champions League looked over when the clock ticked towards the 94th minute when Liverpool were being held 1-1 away at West Brom, but up stepped Alisson to score a simply unbelievable goal to win the game in the last minute.
One year on from that crucial header from Alisson, Klopp is preparing his team for a big final push to end the season with the ultimate price, the quadruple. With Premier League and Champions League glory still firmly insight.
