Klopp reflects on Liverpool’s FA Cup final win

Linda Pizzuti Henry, the wife of Liverpool’s main owner John W Henry, has messaged Reds boss Jurgen Klopp following their success in the FA Cup final.

Klopp has ensured Liverpool are still in contention for an unlikely quadruple – most recently this season, each club was able to win all four major awards in a single domestic campaign. Two trophies are already in the bag after February’s Carabao Cup final win over Chelsea was quickly followed by an FA Cup win over the Blues.

Both trophies were won by dramatic penalty shootouts, the first of which featured all 11 players on both sides before Chelsea assistant goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga missed the decisive shot. At least one player was missing from either side of Saturday’s FA Cup triumph but Sadio Mane’s blush was spared as Mason Mount’s try was saved.

The win marked the eighth time the Reds have won the FA Cup. 120 minutes in scalding sunshine could not separate the two sides and again the game went to a penalty shootout to decide the winner.

Deputy left-back Kostas Tsimikas proved to be the hero, scoring the crucial penalty to win the penalty shootout. The Greece international sent Edouard Mendy the wrong way to spark wild celebrations in Liverpool at the end.

Klopp looked delighted at the win and also ensured that the former Borussia Dortmund boss has now won every single trophy during his time at Anfield. The Reds manager has overseen the most famous chapter in Liverpool’s recent history.

Penalty shootouts are so often nervous occasions when affection for one of the teams involved is at stake, as Pizzuti found firsthand. She admitted she could barely control her nerves as she watched Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and James Milner soar from 12 metres.

“From 700 clubs to 1,” wrote Pizzuti. “What a season. What a club. Besides, I still can’t deal with it [the] Stress from PKs [penalty kicks].”

Reflecting on the game, Klopp admitted his attention was firmly fixed on Wembley instead of focusing on the Champions League final later this month.

“It’s pure joy to be part of this club at the moment,” said the Liverpool manager after the game. “There’s still a lot to do and a lot to play. Tonight I decided to just enjoy this moment and not think about the next challenge. It’s really something special.”
