Can will continue his rehab in Spain, with the Reds assessing his problem throughout the trip before deciding if he can make a full return to first-team training ahead of the final in Kiev on May 26.

On the touchline, the manager has felt exactly the same emotions as the fans in the stands.

"The second leg against City was a very hard game, of course". We managed to lead 5-0 at home.

"We aren't anyone else". And performing at such a high level is very cool.

'It's been a insane ride.

GETTY Jurgen Klopp will be looking to mastermind a way to beat Real Madrid

Liverpool have made a habit of punishing teams with relentless blitzes in games. However, Klopp chose their 5-0 thumping of Porto as his highlight.

Can was injured in Liverpool's win over Watford in March and hasn't played for the Reds since, missing their last seven Premier League games of the season and both legs of their Champions League quarter and semi finals.

Despite their impressive run in Europe, there have naturally been doubts that Klopp's squad isn't quite complete given their slip-ups domestically along the way and they've been linked with addressing them this summer. There are a few moments that are hard [to overcome] but when you've overcome them, you can go even further for another 30 minutes.

"It shows that, with hard work, sacrifice, effort and consistency over a long period of time, you can get rewarded and it will allow us to experience moments like this, in which we have the chance to play in another final and familiarise ourselves with what we have been doing over the past few seasons. I hope we can bring home a third consecutive Champions League title".

'Football should be more oriented to finishing every attack with a shot on target. And that's what we do whenever possible. It's just part of the game.
