Klopp: It's hard to believe

Liverpool boss hails "wonderful night"

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hailed his side's 4-3 victory over Borussia Dortmund in their Europa League quarter final at Anfield.

The Merseysiders made the worst possible start as Henrikh Mkhitaryan and then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored inside nine minutes, leaving Liverpool needing three goals to progress to the semi-finals.

Divock Origi poked one home just after the half-time break but Marco Reus swept a clinical finish past Simon Mignolet for the German side.

However, Philippe Coutinho gave the hosts hope on 66 minutes, Mamadou Sakho headed in from a corner and then in stoppage time Dejan Lovren won it for Liverpool, sparking wild celebrations.

"It is difficult to explain," Klopp told BT Sport. " A wonderful, wonderful night at Anfield and to be honest the game was strange.

"When we brought Daniel Sturridge and Joe Allen on we gave them the message, 'we have to show character.' I don't care if we lose, we have to show them and we did even more. This is European football at its best. It's hard to believe. Congratulations to all of the lads.

"At half-time it's difficult to stay brave but we agreed that the we had to go the hard way. It is a game that all fans - even not of Liverpool or Dortmund - can say, OK, football is a nice game.

"My right arm hurts - I don't know why or who hit me. It's a great night not to forget.

"We fought back like devils and it is deserved. A little bit lucky."
