Klopp equals Ferguson & Ancelotti record after reaching another UCL final

Jurgen Klopp has equaled Sir Alex Ferguson, Carlo Ancelotti, Marcelo Lippi, and Miguel Munoz records after reaching another Champions League final.

The quadruple chaser was two goals down at Estadio de la Cerámica in the first half goal on Tuesday night, courtesy of goals from Boulaye Dia and Francis Coquelin.

However, a second-half pep talk from Klopp saw Fabinho, Luis Diaz, and Sadio Mane helping Liverpool secure a 3-2 comeback win over Villarreal and book a spot in the Champions League final on 5-2 aggregate.

The German tactician has now joined Ferguson, Ancelotti, Lippi, and Munoz to become the fifth manager in European Cup/Champions League history to reach four finals.

Kopp has guided Liverpool to three finals in five years and one with Borussia Dortmund during his spell with the Bundesliga giant.

Liverpool coach is also the first manager to progress to the finals of the Carabao Cup, Emirate FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League in the same season.

The Reds will play either Manchester City or Real Madrid at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, 28 May.
