The Champions League success was reward for a fine season by Liverpool, which claimed 97 points but finished second to Manchester City in the Premier League.


But Klinsmann believes Klopp will already be planning for more with the Reds. "He's a workaholic because that's in our blood where we come from. He's [a] sponge that always wants to learn and always wants to look at what is next … and it never gets saturated," he said.

"One thing is for sure – he will never, ever rest. Winning the Champions League final now, the first thought of him a day later will be, 'how do I win this next year?'"
