Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp have insisted that Bayern Munich were “a little lucky” to win the Champions League.
Bayern Munich edged out Paris Saint-Germain to win tbeir sixth Champions League title in an intriguing final that was played in an empty stadium.
Former PSG player, Kingsley Coman came back to hunt his former club as his header made sure the trophy heads back to Germany.
Klopp have now insisted that the Bundesliga starting back up sooner than any other major European league in May have given Bayern Munich the edge.
The German claims this allowed Hansi Flick’s side to pick up match sharpness in a more progressive manner, before finishing the campaign ahead of their rivals and concentrating solely on the finals in Lisbon.
“It is difficult to write more history in eight months,” Klopp told ZDF.
“[Bayern were] a little lucky that, amid all the chaos with schedules, their schedule was best suited to the Champions League.
“At the moment definitely one of the absolute, absolute top teams. They are sensationally well equipped.
“They have absolute world-class players in every position, and all at the right age.”
