Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he paused celebrations after Liverpool reached the Champions League final against Villarreal to text his wife Ulla, Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips.

His wife Ulla, who was decisive in his decision to recently extend his contract with Liverpool, had already text him - so Klopp obviously replied but Williams and Phillips were next on his list.

"I messaged Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips because we wouldn't be there without them," Klopp told Sky Sports News.

Klopp added: "Hopefully nobody forgot how hard we fought to get here," Klopp says of a time that seems so distant, so divorced from this reality.

Phillips has had an excellent loan spell with Bournemouth in the second half of the season, helping them to promotion back to the Premier League.

The 21-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Swansea City in the Championship before being recalled by Liverpool.

Klopp is expected to send him back out on loan next season to gain some regular, senior playing time.
