Klopp delighted with big fitness boost ahead of UCL final

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that his side will be at almost at full strength ahead of tomorrow’s eagerly awaited Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The Reds have struggled with injury issues in midfield during the run in of the Premier League, but their German coach has now revealed that James Milner, Emre Can and Adam Lallana will all be available for tonight’s crunch encounter in Kiev.

Klopp also admitted that his side may not have the same type of quality as Real on their bench, although he is more than happy with the options at his disposal.

“We don’t have the same quality as bench as Real Madrid because Vazquez and Asensio are young but they have unbelievable quality as well as whoever sits beside them,” Klopp said.

“It’s not about comparing all their good parts. We’ll have the best bench available to us in weeks or maybe months tomorrow night.

“We are as fresh as we can be. Fitness will not be an issue tomorrow. To win a final, each team in the past needed a bit of luck. That’s what we need tomorrow as well.

“We need to be ready for all the challenges in the game. But we will never compare anything they have with what we don’t have. We’re fine with our tools. We want to use them.

“Maybe a few clubs have better things that we have – but they are not in the final. We want to do it our way and then we’ll see where it leads to.
