Jurgen Klopp couldn't resist dig at Man City in post-match press conference

The Reds made light work of Spurs at the Wandra Metropolitano

Liverpool made it six of the best on Saturday evening, defeating Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid to clinch the Champions League for the first time since 2005.

The Reds went ahead inside the first two minutes thanks to a Mohamed Salah penalty following a dubious handball from Moussa Sissoko, before super sub Divock Origi yet again stepped up to the plate for his side in Europe, doubling Liverpool's advantage with just three minutes left on the clock.

The game was far from a spectacle. It flattered to deceive, in truth, with Spurs offering little in the way of a fightback against Jurgen Klopp's dominant outfit. The Merseysiders won't care one bit, however, they've got their just deserts this year; after narrowly missing out on the Premier League title by a single point, their European success is thoroughly deserved.

After the tie, with the celebrations in the away dressing room ringing true, manager Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media for just over ten minutes. Expectedly, the eccentric manager was in charismatic form, joyous in victory, joking around with that warming grin on his face, the one that we've all become so accustomed to over the last four years.

The 51-year-old revealed that he had told UEFA officials that his side would be present in next year's final in Istanbul to defend their crown - it would perhaps be foolish to rule out the possibility of a third successive CL final appearance for the Reds considering the way they're playing at the moment.

When asked about the memorable European Cup win in 2005, where Liverpool put on an astonishing comeback to beat AC Milan on penalties, Klopp bizarrely diverted attention to rival manager Pep Guardiola, saying:

"We know that we carry the burden of history. And making Istanbul happen again... yeah we'll be a target, I would say. It would be difficult.

"By the way, a second ago I spoke to Pep Guardiola on the phone. As you know, our head physio [Lee Nobes] worked for Manchester City at the start of the year... but he wanted to win the Champions League! No, it's a joke."

The very fact that Klopp was thinking about the Spaniard when his side had just won the Champions League is a bit strange, though it summarises just how much the two think of each other. Guardiola has frequently talked about Klopp when there was no real need to, and this time it was the other way around with Klopp cracking what can only be described as a terrible 'dad joke' in his post-match press conference on Saturday.

“We promised each other that we will kick each other's butts again next season," Klopp added, again talking about the Cityzens boss.

"We will go for everything and see what we get.

"Getting 97 points in the Premier League and winning the Champions League is an unbelievable long way to go and we did it. That's incredible.

"Now we've won something, we will carry on. We will win things. That is big. I am really happy.”
