Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Klopp paid tribute to Liverpool fans following the team around the world.

“What can I say about the desire of our supporters?!,” the German told press. “We know how much they want to win this cup.

“They showed us in an impressive way when we played at home, and when we played away from home.”
