Liverpool has been described as a perfect team ahead of their European Champions League final match clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night. This description was made by none other than a former player of the team who goes by the name Dirk Kuyt.
The ex player went on to say that believes the Klopp tutored side are on the verge of becoming one of the most memorable team in history. The team has the the chance to cap a remarkable season with silverware when they take on Tottenham in the Champions League despite finishing second behind Manchester City in the Premier League.
Liverpool is playing in a second successive Champions League final as they were also in the final match last year where they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev last season.
This match is also the fourth major final that Liverpool have played in under Klopp, though the former Borussia Dortmund boss is still in the hunt for his first trophy during his time in charge of the Reds.
The former Reds player, Dirk Kuyt, who spent six years at Anfield between 2006 and 2012 and scored in Liverpool’s 2007 Champions League final defeat to AC Milan, has praised Klopp’s impact.
“Absolutely,” Kuyt told France Football when asked if Liverpool are a perfect side. “Everyone is in tune.
“Klopp’s ideas are perfect. It really looks like the players are doing exactly what he wants from them.
“From the moment he arrived, he had a very clear idea of what he wanted. And all big projects, big ideas require time.
“The club allowed Klopp to set up this team, he was given enough time to do it. The puzzle is complete. They failed to win the Premier League but finished second with a bewildering number of points.
“I’m already excited to see next season. Every year there is some progress.
“This may be the beginning of a Liverpool team that will be remembered forever. If they can start with the Champions League, then maybe the Premier League next year, they will most likely become one of the best Liverpool teams ever seen.”
Liverpool head into this all-Premier League clash at the Wanda Metropolitano as favourites, having finished 26 points above Tottenham in the top flight.
