UCL Final: Klopp Targets Upset Against Real Madrid
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful his side can pull an upset against 12-time European champions, Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final in Kiev.
Though Klopp admits that experience is key in games like this, he was also quick to add that it will not be the only factor.
"Experience is very important. I am pretty sure in the second before the game Real Madrid will be more confident than we are, but the game doesn't end in that second, it only starts," Klopp said.
"When you see Real Madrid play you say 'wow they are really strong' but they never played us.
"Nobody expected us to be here, but we are here because we are Liverpool. We are not only a really good football team. This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things. Nobody expected us to be here, but we are here. Because we are Liverpool."
Liverpool are seeking a sixth European title but none of Klopp's squad has played in a Champions League final.
