“At the break I told them that they had to improve. We tried to find a situation in the match in which they did what we wanted. But Villarreal has impressed us, we have not found continuity. I have told him that we had to move more, that they move to cause problems. We have done it,” Klopp said.
Jurgen Klopp’s statements about Luis Díaz
“In the first half we didn’t see that monstrous team, but it’s Villarreal’s fault. Reacting the way we’ve reacted has been incredible. Luis Díaz has had an incredible impact but I don’t want to personalise, and it’s not Jota’s fault, it was everyone’s. We have changed to him, but it was not us. In the second half we have been, and that is why we have won the match”, he added.
“But this is not over, we are happy, it is difficult to reach three finals, but we will see what happens when we play them“, said Klopp, who added seven to this new final as if it were the first, because it is the best competition in the world.
