Ahead of the match, Jurgen Klopp had stated that a Club World Cup title would be like ‘landing on the moon’ for Liverpool.
That was exactly the emotion portrayed by the Liverpool boss after his side grabbed an extra time winner to down Flamengo by one goal in Saturday’s final.
It was Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino who struck the decisive goal in the 99th minute of the clash at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.
It adds to Liverpool’s impressive resurgence under Klopp which has already seen them capture the UEFA Champions League title earlier this year in May. The Reds are also on course to break their excruciating wait for Premier League glory in the ongoing campaign after opening up a substantial lead over defending champions Manchester City.
See what Klopp had to say about his side’s latest conquest in the video posted above.
