The Reds won the title thanks to second minute goal from Mohammad Salah from the spot and late Divock Origi strike to ensure Jurgen Klopp’s first Champions League title.
What’s the Story?
Arsene Wenger was working as a pundit with Jose Mourinho for the Champions League final.
Former Gunner boss was full of praise of Liverpool after their semi-final comeback against Barcelona. He echoed those sentiments again last night after Liverpool’s triumph
He told beIN Sports,
“Liverpool is the city of the music, of the working class and of football. We have seen an example tonight that it goes all well together,”
“For everybody who has managed in England, we know Liverpool is a special place for football and that is why they can always make miracles.”
“Sometimes you are in a position with a team where you want to improve the team but without destroying your strong points,” he said.
“They need maybe, to dominate European football, to improve the technical level, But as well they might lose what is their strength at the moment – that solidarity, their fighting spirit.
“In our jobs we know we need to improve the team but then, by improving one aspect, you destroy what made you win.”
Arsene Wenger summed it up pretty well about the Liverpool. This win wouldn’t have been possible without the fans, Anfield and Jurgen Klopp. Something an experienced manager like Arsene Wenger understands very well.
