Happy, Klopp talks about the importance of closing the year on a high, especially after stumbling since the resumption of the season last month. The coach emphasizes satisfaction with the winning team. “A hundred percent. It was the target of the day, finish high and we did it. We needed a little alert; I don’t know if we needed it, but we did it and from that moment on the boys worked hard to play against this Newcastle defensive wall.
