For a half -time, Jürgen Klopp was to look at his annoyance, in the end he threw the supporters of FC Liverpool kissing hands with a satisfied smile.
With the unruly FC Villarreal, the Reds was sufficient after the break to confidently move in 3: 2 (0: 2) after a 0-2 deficit in the Champions League final on May 28th in the Stade de France near Paris. The opponent will be Real Madrid or Manchester City.
“Cool, we are really happy,” said a visibly dissolved Klopp after the game at “Amazon Prime” and known: “The second half was better than the first.”
In fact, Liverpool didn’t look good at first. “They made steam, the small stadium was on fire, they bought our cutting. We had no rhythm.”
Klopp proves good hands

Klopp is standing with the Reds for the third time after 2018 (defeat against Real Madrid) and 2019 (victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the term of the premier class. Thanks to Klopp, a German coach also reaches for the fifth time after the Henkelpott: In the previous year, Thomas Tuchel had with the FC Chelsea won the title.
In addition, the first quadruple for an English club is still possible for the Reds, you already have the league cup, FA-Cup, championship and Champions League victory are still possible. But Klopp didn’t want to think about that. “It’s just nonsense with this quadruple crap. We are now playing against Tottenham, that’s the best counter team in the world, we have to win it.”
Liverpool ended the game in overnight
Liverpool had all the trump cards in her hand after the 2-0 in the first leg on the Anfield Road, but lost her in a weak first half in the bubbling Estadio de la Cerámica. Boulaye Dia (3rd) and Francis Coquelin (41st) met for the team of coach Unai Emery, who, however, kinked in the pressure of the guests after the break.
Despite the deficit, Liverpool kept the nerve and tore the game with patience and force, especially the Luis Diaz, which was substituted by Klopp at halftime, was a revival.
