Klopp wants Liverpool stars to join kopp legends by beating Sevilla



Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool stars can join Kop legends by beating Sevilla in the Europa League final.

JURGEN KLOPP challenged his players to become Liverpool legends — and says they have never been in better shape to do so.
Klopp leads his rookies into tonight’s Europa League final with Sevilla just seven months after arriving at Anfield.

Yet he reckons they are in perfect condition to stun the Spanish side, who are chasing a three-peat. Klopp said: “It is a wonderful story to tell your grandchildren about being aLiverpool legend.
“How it feels to be a Liverpool legend I have no idea — but it is one of the best things you could feel. “In my opinion we are in a perfect moment to play a final. I’m really happy.
“That doesn’t mean all is already done, far from it. But this hard, intensive seven months feels like it should end in a final.



“We have very much deserved to be in this final — and we will be a real competitor.”
Liverpool are aiming to end an 11-year European trophy drought.
And the Kop boss knows that even though Liverpool are favourites and 26,000 fans are to descend on Basel, it will be no stroll against a Spanish side who have dominated this competition.
Sevilla have won the trophy for the last two years and Klopp warned Liverpool must be ready to take risks. He added: “This is special for us — it is a really big opportunity. This team has the hunger.”
Kop legend Steven Gerrard, now at LA Galaxy, said: “It’s strange to be away from it all but I’ll still be supporting the lads.”
