FA Cup: I feel for Chelsea, it’s hard for them to bear – Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp appeared to ridicule Chelsea following Saturday's FA Cup final, which was a rematch of the Carabao Cup final, which Liverpool had won on penalties earlier in February.
The Reds have already won their second domestic prize of the season, defeating Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea.
Both teams had great chances to score, with Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic wasting golden chances for Chelsea and Luis Diaz and Andy Robertson almost scoring for Liverpool.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount both missed penalty kicks, but Kostas Tsimikas scored the game-winning penalty.
Sadio Mane had the chance to clinch the trophy for Liverpool after Azpilicueta’s effort hit the post, but he was denied by his Senegal teammate Edouard Mendy.
With the win, the Reds have kept their chances of winning the quadruple this season.
“Then in the penalty shootout, it was nerve-racking, my nails are gone but I really feel for Chelsea – for the second time, 120 minutes and you get nothing, that’s too hard. But for us I’m pretty happy,” he told the BBC.
“We are mentality monsters but there were mentality monsters in blue as well – it was one penalty. Chelsea played outstanding but in the end there must be one winner and that was us today.”
