Klopp all praise for young Trent Alexander-Arnold

ANI  |  Football 

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hailed Trent Alexander-Arnold after their 4-0 victory over Barcelona in the second-leg of semi-finals which helped them to reach into the finals of Champions League.

"We thought our performance was better than 3-0 at Barca, and Barca were better than 4-0 here. We all know you need luck in this situation or a genius moment like Trent Alexander-Arnold," Goal quoted Klopp, as saying.

"I saw the ball in the net and didn't know who had taken the corner, it was too quick for me. Oh my God - genius," he added.

Klopp's side made an impeccable comeback after facing a 0-3 defeat in the hands of Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final first leg on May 2.

Klopp also stated that such a win would not have been possible in an empty stadium.

"No chance. We know this is the club that makes atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality. If you cut off one it doesn't work. We know that, I've said it before," Klopp said.

"This club has a big heart and tonight it was obviously [beating] like crazy. It was pounding, you could hear it and feel it all over the world," he added.

Liverpool will meet the winner of Ajax and Tottenham clash which is set to take place on May 9.
