Klopp: ‘Liverpool were lucky today’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confessed they were “lucky today, we know that” after Roma won 4-2, but still went out of the Champions League.

The Reds go forward to face Real Madrid in the Final in Kiev and the dedication was for the fan still in critical condition after an attack outside Anfield.

“It’s 100 per cent a Final for Sean Cox. We said before the game we thought about it, now we’re here, all our prayers and wishes are with him,” Klopp told Mediaset Premium after the final whistle.

“We were lucky today, we know that. Roma are strong, we had them where we wanted, as they were wild, ran the risks and we went 2-1 up. All good.

“But then we didn’t do enough on the counter, we didn’t use the space that they gave us and we lost the game after going 1-0 up already.”

Klopp said he felt like Robin Hood robbing Real Madrid when he was at Bayer Leverkusen, so what’s the situation this time?

“What can I say? I don’t care who we are at the moment. We have to play much better than tonight, the good news is we can play much better than tonight.”
