“It was special – absolutely special,” said Klopp. “We don’t have to compare as we never have done it before.
“We all know it could have been different. It could have been worse, for example, if we never won the game. The boys gave us the opportunity to have a really special night.
“I think a lot of people thought before the game one team fights for the Champions League, the other team is maybe already on the beach. But these boys are so special. I could not be more proud.
“Throwing a performance like this in on the pitch tonight… it was an open game but nice, nice goals. Incredible goals, super footballing moments. I loved the game! We could enjoy it and we will enjoy the rest of the night.”
Liverpool received special permission to allow the players’ families to attend Anfield and take part in the celebrations.
