Liverpool have won the Champions League, or previous European Cup, six times with Klopp celebrating success in 2019.Klopp said his aim as a manager was always to coach a team in the Champions League and he liked the fact that a club like West Ham United, not one of the 12, could play in the tournament next year if they finished in the top four in England.

It's a tough time but I will try to help to sort it somehow."
