Big statement from Jurgen Klopp! Liverpool boss labels Carabao Cup triumph over Chelsea his ‘most special trophy’

Jurgen Klopp surprisingly believes Sunday’s Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea is comfortably the ‘most special trophy’ of his Liverpool tenure.

Given he has won both the Premier League and Champions League with the Reds, the Liverpool boss may have raised a few eyebrows with his claim. However, considering Klopp has announced he is leaving the club at the end of the season, he truly savoured the special moment with the adoring Liverpool faithful.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said: “In my more than 20 years, it was easily the most special trophy I have ever won. It is absolutely exceptional. I wish I could feel proud more often. Tonight that is the overwhelming feeling. I was proud of our people for the way they pushed us. It was nothing to do with it maybe being my last game at Wembley. It was about how everybody contributed with the kids.”

Klopp was quick to point out the role of his youth players as several academy players came off the bench to freshen up the side. The Liverpool boss was full of praise for the youngsters who saw off pressure from Chelsea to win the Carabao Cup. It may be Klopp’s final time at Wembley and he made sure he treasured each moment.

One down, three to go? Klopp will be certainly hoping so as his side chase down the Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup. They face Southampton next week in the latter competition.
