And Klopp has revealed the stick Karius received following the game almost put him off signing Alisson.
"I didn't tell Karius what he wanted to hear, but how it is," Klopp told Kicker. "The Champions League final had nothing to do with us getting Alisson.
"Even if he had won it and Alisson would have been on the market we would have still signed him.
"And how the people reacted negatively to Karius after the final, tried to isolate him, almost made me not get Alisson and rather stick it out with Karius.
"But we had to be professional. Our job is to have the best players on every position."
