Liverpool boss Klopp warns Real Madrid: We can rip up your f***ing Champions League script!

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned Champions League final opponents Real Madrid they're ready to rip up the script.

The prestige of both clubs ensures there will be no inferiority complex.

"They can make it a third time in-a-row, but we are Liverpool, that's something not to forget. We feel that," says Klopp to the Independent. "We like the role we are in. Everything is positive. We've learnt a bit, and we are in a good moment.

"There have been three dominant clubs in the last few years. Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern. A few others showed up but there are those three, and we face one of them in the final, so who should be the favourite? It's not that I want to be the underdog and I don't feel like an underdog. But yes, they are favourites, they know everything, they could write the f***ing scripts for the finals because they have experienced it four times in the last five years.

"We can't, but there's no problem with that. We want to play football and win a football game and thank God it is always possible. I saw a car coming in this morning with two flags, 'Liverpool Champions League final Kiev'. So it starts already. We are looking forward to it, we are happy about it, having a smile on your face, that's nice. You can pretty much only get it from football. That's really cool."
