Alisson Becker has revealed what Jurgen Klopp told them before the semi-final game against Barcelona in the Champions League last season.

Liverpool lost the first leg of the semi-final game with a 3-0 score at Camp Nou, however, at Anfield, the Reds made a comeback by winning with a 4-0 score and progressed to the final and eventually became the Champions League winners.

In an interview with Mundo Deportivo (via Mirror), Alisson said: “It was something incredible.

“After the first game, nobody thought we could get back, but we were very confident. It was one of the games I will never forget.

“It will be another unforgettable moment in my career. In the match in Barcelona we played well and had a lot of chances but lost by three goals. That left us very sad.

“We respected Barca a lot but we knew we could go back. In England we went out for all and it was an incredible night.

“With Liverpool in the first leg we deserved more, and Klopp told us to not slow down and continue imposing our high pace of play so we could achieve our goal.”
