Klopp, who was clearly frustrated at missing out on the chance to lift silverware in his first four months in charge of the club, said he felt “shit” in this moment and couldn’t see the positives yet as he is “human” and “it hurts.”
The Reds’ boss insisted his side will use the experience to “strike back” in the future.
“You have to feel a defeat. You cannot say ‘I don’t care, it’s not important’,” he said.
“If I was allowed to say shit I would say shit but I’m not allowed!
“It was important and we lost, so that feels not too good.
“You always have to strike back. We can say all of these things, but you know you can fall down and then you have to stand up.
“That’s the truth, but it’s completely normal—only silly idiots stay on the floor and wait for the next defeat.
“Of course we will strike back—100 percent.”
