Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told the Liverpool Echo that he and Pep Guardiola have already promised to 'kick each other's butts' next season.

The Reds won the Champions League on Saturday night, beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in Madrid, kickstarted by Mohamed Salah's early penalty.

Divock Origi added a second late on after Tottenham had huffed and puffed, but simply couldn't blow the Liverpool house down.

 

Liverpool celebrated a sixth European Cup win, exorcising the demons from their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the final of last season's competition.

It means Liverpool do end the season with a trophy after all, and whilst they're back on top of European football yet again, they're still missing a Premier League title.

Klopp finished just shy of Guardiola's Manchester City in the title race this season, and it seems that the pair spoke straight after Liverpool's Champions League win.

Klopp initially joked that he wanted to talk to Guardiola because physio Lee Nobes had left City for Liverpool earlier this season in order to win the Champions League, before admitting that the two managers have promised to 'kick each other's butts' again next season, having racked up staggering points tallies this term.

“A second ago I spoke to Pep Guardiola on the phone,” said Klopp. “Our head physio worked for Manchester City at the start of the year but he wanted to win the Champions League... no, it's a joke! We promised each other that we will kick each other's butts again next season. We will go for everything and see what we get,” he added.
