Dirk Kuyt has hailed Liverpool as a 'perfect' team, and believes Jurgen Klopp's side is on the verge of becoming one of the most memorable in history.

After finishing second behind Manchester City in the Premier League, Liverpool has the chance to cap a remarkable season with silverware when it takes on Tottenham in the Champions League final on Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Saturday's contest in Madrid is the second successive Champions League final that Liverpool has appeared in, with the Reds having lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev last season.

It represents the fourth major final that Liverpool has taken part 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.

And 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 lauded 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 they want 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 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."

Unlike last season's final, Liverpool heads into the all-Premier League clash at the Wanda Metropolitano as favourite, having finished 26 points above Tottenham in the top flight.
