UCL Final: Klopp Warns Real Madrid
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is already talking tough ahead of the Champions League final and he has warned Real Madrid that his team would be "on fire".
The Reds booked their spot in the final via a 7-6 aggregate win over Roma, despite suffering a 4-2 loss at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.
But they now face an even sterner test in the final on May 26, against two-time reigning champions Real Madrid.
Klopp knows just how much experience Madrid have, but he believes his team will be at their best.
"Going to a final is really nice. I did it a few times but winning it is even nicer. We will be ready," he said.
"You cannot be more experienced in the competition than Real Madrid. I think pretty much 80 per cent of the team played all these finals four times in the last five years and they are still together.

"So if we talk about experience, they are experienced and we are not. But we will be really on fire, you can imagine.
"We are looking forward to it but before that we have to play two more Champions League semi-finals in the Premier League. That is first of all the job to do.
"Then we'll have two weeks to prepare for the final and we will use that time."
The last time Liverpool won the Champions League was in 2005.
