He explained: This was clear in my opinion, no one thought how Liverpool would survive? This is perhaps the most prominent indication that the most worthy team qualified.

Klopp concluded: Not every exit is done in this way, there are maybe 500,000 different ways to get out, which is what happened with us, this is not what we wanted, but this is how it happened, now we have to move forward.
