Klopp ‘Proud’ Of Liverpool After Making History Against AC Milan In Champions League

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp was over the moon after his men beat AC Milan 2-1 in their final game of the Champions League group stage at San Siro on Tuesday night.

Klopp says he is proud of his men as they became the first English club in Champions League history to win all six group-stage games.

The Rossoneri needed a win at all cost in order to keep their dreams of reaching the next stage alive but it was not the case when the English side asserted their spot at the summit of Group B.

Liverpool started the game brilliantly but it was the former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori, who opened the scoring for Stefano Pioli’s men on 29 minutes.

Red-hot Mohamed Salah pulled parity nine minutes before halftime and Divock Origi, who is having an amazing week, once again scored the winning goal for the Merseyside-based club just ten minutes into the second half.

In an interview with the media after the game, Klopp, who looked excited, told Sky Sports that he is proud of his men and lauded their mesmeric performance.

“Very proud, especially because of the sixth game to be honest. We needed fresh legs, we needed desire to play this game, which was really difficult in a hectic schedule we have. What the boys did tonight I couldn’t be prouder. It was an incredible game,” the former Borussia Dortmund head coach said.

“The performance was absolutely outstanding, playing this game having 21 shots, so many situations where we played outstandingly well and defended with passion and good organisation. So many good things I saw tonight and I’m happy.”

Next up for the Reds is a game in the Premier League against Aston Villa, who will be coming to Liverpool with Steven Gerrard as head coach.
