Klopp: Liverpool players could be remembered for 500 years with European glory

Ousmane Dembele

Hughton's Seagulls finish the season at Anfield on Sunday having lost their penultimate fixture at the Etihad Stadium in midweek.

A point at Anfield, where they have not lost all season, will effectively be enough for the Reds to secure a top-four spot due to their vastly superior goal difference to fifth-placed Chelsea. "I said many times, it was always in my mind to come back because a lot of people said "he can not succeed here [in England] and he is not good enough for the Premier League".

Unbeaten at home in the league this season, Liverpool are odds-on to achieve their goal. Belief has been central to so numerous positive things we have done this season.

Jurgen Klopp has a big challenge this weekend in keeping his Liverpool players focused on Brighton and Hove Albion as there is a bigger game just around the corner, and the bigger game is none other than against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final.

"This is our first season in the league and so we are learning still, we're trying to improve as much as we can, and we will try to add to the squad in the summer".

Klopp's free-scoring side need just a point from their final match at Anfield to guarantee a top-four finish and Champions League qualification next season.

"I said after Chelsea - and it has been repeated by the players - that today is a cup final and it is".

They perhaps couldn't have asked for better opposition as Brighton have nothing left to play for after securing their top flight status and they like to play decent football meaning they shouldn't sit back and defend for 90 minutes. It's not like we will go there and train twice a day or three times a day. No.

"All the awards around are really deserved but hopefully the last one was yesterday and now it is about playing the game on Sunday".

City could already be crowned English champions by the time the sides meet again for the second leg in six days' time should they beat local rivals Manchester United on Saturday. "As long as we are not 100 percent in the Champions League, this last game is the most important of the season", he said. 'If we don't do it and Chelsea get the spot then they deserve it. We have to play this game and that's absolutely okay.

And Klopp delivered his tribute via video link: "I read and hear about him being a wonderful role model for Egypt - North Africa - for the wider Arabic world and for Muslims".
