Klopp on choosing Liverpool over Man United

Klopp on choosing Liverpool over Man United

Liverpool received an injury boost as the duo of James Miller and Emre Can resumed full training with their teammates ahead of Saturday's UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev, Ukraine.

Klopp says he is able to handle the pressure and take the blame for his players when needed. I think at our best we are certainly one of the best teams in the world.

The Merseyside club have already plundered 40 goals in their march to the final and England global Henderson credited Klopp with re-energising the team.

Klopp added: "Each team in the world has a weakness".

"You saw it, everybody saw it, seems obvious: "Marcelo, what an offensive player, but. he can't defend", Klopp said to The Mirror.

"To get to the Champions League final is hard, never easy, so I think you can see how together everybody is when people score goals and people score their first goals like the other week with Andy [Robertson] and Dom [Solanke]". We had one player who maybe he could make a difference on his own, and here they have three.

Shooting at middle school in IN, 2 victims in critical condition
A teacher and a student were wounded Friday morning, when another student opened fire inside a middle school near Indianapolis. The families of the two victims had been notified, he said, though he did not give details regarding their conditions.

Liverpool have had British players such as Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andy Robertson all playing pivotal roles in their journey to the Champions League final.

Liverpool have played some sensational football this season and are top scorers in the Champions League with 40 goals. And I thought "wow, that's not the game I love".

Their paths to Ukraine really could not have been more different, but here they are and they are preparing to do battle against each other for the first time. "(I can) definitely see how hungry the team are to be successful".

However, despite the tie being a huge deal for both sets of fans, a win for Liverpool would also be a big moment for Sunderland's Academy. These players have been doing it every week and creating countless chances per game.

He said: "A friend I was with turned to him and said, "Do you know this man, do you know who this man is?"

They have built up a frightening winning mentality in the competition, as they go in search of a fourth European crown in five years.
