"Champions League qualification, so we are in the competition next year, that was the target from the first day," Klopp told reporters.

"If someone said to me before we started that on the last day of the season you will have it in your own hands, I would have said 'okay, I will take that'.

"It would have been possible to have done it a bit earlier but for different reasons - one of the reasons is being in the Champions League itself. We have to play this game and that's absolutely okay. It is a very positive situation.

"I cannot think at the moment about the Champions League final. I have to think about this game and winning this game and making sure we play Champions League next year and then we have two weeks to prepare for the other game. To be remembered in 500 years then we have to win the other game for sure."

Ray Clemence: Jurgen Klopp is ‘nearest thing’ Liverpool have had to Bill Shankly .
Former Liverpool goalkeeper Ray Clemence has claimed Jurgen Klopp is the closest thing Liverpool have had to Bill Shankly, reports Sky Sports. Shankly won numerous titles and trophies in his 15-year spell as Liverpool manager but one thing he never won was the European Cup. He did manage Uefa Cup but this weekend Klopp has the chance to go one better than his predecessor. Clemence was signed by Shankly in 1967, and was a major player during the manager’s final years in charge. He experienced the fantastic relationship Shankly held with the fans and the unity that he brought between them. According to Clemence, Klopp is doing something similar: “In terms of the relationship he’s got between himself and the players and the fans, (he did) exactly what Bill Shankly did. He pulled the club all together, so it was one strong unit that would do anything to help each other out to get through whatever.” Liverpool are aiming to lift the trophy for the first time since 2005, but go into the game with Real Madrid as underdogs.
