Klopp insists Champions League final is ‘no different’ to any other game

Jurgen Klopp is not treating next month’s Champions League final any differently to any other game.

Klopp’s Liverpool side travel to Madrid to face Premier League rivals Spurs in the Champions League on June 1st, in a game which is set to define both side’s entire season.

Liverpool enjoyed a sensational campaign in the Premier League this season, pushing Man City all the way, before eventually finishing second with a record haul of 97 points.

However, they have the chance to at least finish the season in glorious fashion by claiming their sixth European crown, a trophy that would represent Jurgen Klopp’s first during his time at Anfield, although the German isn’t treating the game any differently to any other fixture.

“We know each other pretty well, and that’s it,” he told UEFA.

“But nothing else apart from that. It’s a final and you have an opponent and you have to prepare for it, look at their strengths, look at their weaknesses, that’s what you have to do. So that makes it no different.

“There are no easy games. In the Champions League there are no easy games, so why should the final be easy? Certainly not. So far we’ve always used our experience in these moments, during every moment in our season.

“That’s what we have to do. We have to play the football we stand for. We have to play LFC football. That’s the plan, and then it will still be difficult, but it was difficult in all the other games as well.

“We know that already, so why should we think too much about it? If we are really at our absolute top level then we are a difficult team to play against, but we know Tottenham are as well.”
