Watch: Jurgen Klopp Hugely Emotional As Liverpool Win The Champions League

Emotion spilled from Jurgen Klopp as he stood on the pitch following Liverpool's Champions League final victory over Spurs.

"You saw how intense it was for both teams," said Klopp who went on to say that he was thinking of his family more than any others at that moment.

That was not the best game of Tottenham, it wasn't the best game of Liverpool. We won it and we scored two goals and we have a sensational goalkeeper.

I was in seven finals and lost all of them. It's for them, my family. They are really my blood and they suffer more than I suffer when it doesn't work.

"Did you ever see a team like this? They fight with absolutely no fuel in the tank anymore?" he told BT Sport.

"It's the best night of my life, professional-wise."

Asked about the German tradition of drenching the winning manager with beer following a major victory, Klopp said: "When I win, 20 minutes after the game I am half-pissed but I didn't even get a water."
