Klopp said after the game, "What happened here was absolutely insane, these things are not possible. The team, a squad, an academy full of character. I am so proud I could be part of that tonight. The craziest thing is we deserved it. We had lucky moments, they had lucky moments. The boys showed up, it was really cool."

Klopp was extremely proud of playing the academy players in the final and recognized them for being involved in the team. Klopp said, "I am sure we brought on all the kids! We needed fresh legs, they were fresh but very young, but they did the job. The boys have trained for a long time with us, they know exactly what we have to do. They are a pain, to be honest, that is what you have to be in these moments. But not only them, how about Harvey Elliot for 120 miutes, [Wataru] Endo walked to the ceremoney with the stiffest legs."

Klopp also praised Conor Bradley and gave a bold statement about goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, who made nine saves. Klopp said, "We didn't mention Conor [Bradley]; he was so good. Caoimhin [Kelleher], he was so good. We have the best keeper in the world and the best number two."
