How many Champions League finals have Klopp played in?

Jurgen Klopp was already on the verge of touching the sky without having left Germany, leading a Borussia Dortmund team that played great soccer and was able to win two Bundesliga titles against the "almighty" Bayern Munich.

In fact, Bayern itself managed to snatch the title in the final of the Champions League in the 2012/2013 season after beating them 2-1.

Five years later, in 2017/2018, and already as Liverpool manager, Klopp again missed out on the Champions League by losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in the final.

Now, after beating Villarreal in the semifinals with a 5-2 aggregate score, Klopp will be playing in his fourth Champions League final and will be looking to win it for the second time as a coach. It will be his third final with Liverpool and he will face either Manchester City or Real Madrid, the team with whom he lost his second Champions League final as manager.
