Klopp and Guardiola: Face off at Anfield on Saturday

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he received a congratulatory phone call from his opposite number at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola.

Klopp ended a run of six successive final defeats and claimed a first trophy as Reds boss when his side beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid.

It was also the club’s sixth European Cup title, taking them third on to the all-time list behind Real Madrid and AC Milan.

“A second ago I spoke to Pep Guardiola on the phone. Our head physio [Lee Nobes] worked for Manchester City at the start of the year but he wanted to win the Champions League… no, it’s a joke,” Klopp told reporters.

“We promised each other that we will kick each other’s butts again next season. We will go for everything and see what we get.

“Getting 97 points in the Premier League and winning the Champions League is an unbelievable long way to go and we did it. That’s incredible.

“Now we’ve won something, we will carry on. We will win things. That is big. I am really happy.”
