Jurgen Klopp has admitted he hopes Liverpool will show what ‘they’ve learned’ against Real Madrid on Saturday.

Both sides will face each other in the Champions League final in Paris on May 28.

The Reds are heading to Stade de France after lifting the Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup at Wembley this year.

While Los Blancos managed to take the crown of Spanish La Liga recently.

Teams had another UCL final together back in 2018 in Kyiv, where the Spanish side took the advantage.

However, Klopp’s side will travel to Paris for a revenge this time.

Talking via club’s official website, the German manager stated:

“Oh, we did it the Liverpool way, which is the hard way. So, we lost [some] big finals, obviously.

 

“In the first year [of his time in charge], Europa League final and the Carabao Cup final. All of these experiences are important in life. They are. But they are not nice [in] any way.

 

“So then, we came back and we had to learn [how to win]. We had to learn [how to] be at our top level of focus and concentration in a game like this.

 

“To do all the things you do over the years, to use it in such a high, prolific game – and that’s the plan. So yeah, I think if we are not entering a world-class team already but you want to get there then you’re going to have to learn [how].

 

“And that’s what we did and I’m really happy with how the boys have developed over the years. That’s why the group has been pretty together since then. [This hasn’t] happened a lot but some players are playing a third Champions League final, which is absolutely incredible.”
