Despite the abysmal trip to Paris for many, the team was met by a huge crowd on Sunday as they paraded the and League Cup trophies won this season.

Klopp was moved by the turnout shown by the Reds supporters and thanked them for their efforts in emotional fashion.

‘Without a shadow of a doubt, no club in the world – this world – that they lost the final the night before and the people arrive here in the shape they are, the mood they are. Absolutely outstanding,’ Klopp said on Sunday at the parade.

‘This is the best club in the world – I don’t care what other people think!

‘I wasn’t sure what we can expect. We spoke about it before, “What do we do?” You have to plan this kind of thing. You can’t just decide to have a parade. But I hoped that we find something like this, it’s absolutely incredible.

‘That’s the biggest sign you can give to the world. Yes, we won two competitions, great, but we didn’t win the last two – and these people don’t forget, they know exactly what a shift the boys put in. Absolutely incredible. It’s such a boost for everything that will come. Unbelievable.’

Specifically on what Reds fans had to deal with from the French authorities and police, Klopp added: ‘I’m proud of the players but I’m proud of these people, to be honest. Unbelievable. Yesterday in the stadium some things happened that nobody understood, our families were in trouble, all these kinds of things.

‘Now we come here and see this, when you see the eyes of the people, it’s incredible. I love you all!

‘And I’m not drunk, not a little bit, just emotional!’
