Klopp takes salty dig at Bayern Munich

Jurgen Klopp took a dig at Champions League winners Bayern Munich.

He wasn’t too pleased with the German giants winning the much coveted Champions League title of 2019-20. Liverpool had been the winners last year  – however, this year they got knocked out of the competition in the early stages.

Klopp feels that Bayern Munich had some ‘advantages’ along with luck which led them to win the title.

“It is difficult to write more history in eight months,” he told ZDF of Flick’s remarkable period in charge.

“[Bayern were] a little lucky that, amid all the chaos with schedules, their schedule was best suited to the Champions League.

“At the moment, definitely, one of the absolute, absolute top teams. They are sensationally well equipped.

“They have absolute world-class players in every position and all at the right age.”

Further, Klopp also pointed out that Hansi Flick had Niko Kovac next to him as the assistant manager – which helped him greatly.

“Hansi was lucky enough to have done such a good job as assistant coach to Niko Kovac that he was allowed to stay, and that worked quite well,” Klopp added.

“Both finalists had an absolutely top team available. But Bayern wanted it more – although Paris wanted it very much. Paris really wanted it, you could see it.

“Bayern were lucky, but they didn’t need much. And that’s why they deserved to win. It would be nice if you could play the best game of the season in a final, it’s just very unlikely.”
