Jurgen Klopp’s poor record in cup finals continued on Saturday night as his Liverpool side were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev.

The charismatic German coach has now lost six of seven cup finals as a manager.

This was Klopp’s third cup final with Liverpool - following the 2016 Capital One Cup final and the Europa League final in the same year - and undoubtedly the biggest.

The Reds started well at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium and dominated the opening exchanges against Zinedine Zidane’s men.

However, the whole complexion of the match changed when Mohamed Salah went off injured on the half-hour mark.

It was Loris Karius, however, who had the biggest impact on the result. His calamitous errors gifted Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale a goal each in the second half.

The German goalkeeper was in floods of tears after the final whistle and apologised to his teammates and the club’s fans in a heartbreaking interview with talkSPORT.

Liverpool fans are loving Klopp even more now

Klopp, meanwhile, cut a bemused and disappointed figure in his post-match interview. He knew this had been a wasted opportunity to win club football’s most prestigious trophy.

However, footage has emerged which suggests Klopp spent the night drowning his sorrows, while also remembering that reaching the Champions League final in the first place was a pretty special achievement. Watch this video…

Yep, Klopp was filmed at 6am on Sunday morning - a good eight hours after the final whistle - singing along with Liverpool supporters.

Check out the Liverpool fan next to him with Klopp’s runners-up medal around his neck. Class.

This is how you get over a cup final defeat

Needless to say, Liverpool fans on social media - and the wider football community, for that matter - are loving this footage.

Would any other football manager be doing this at 6am after losing a Champions League final?

You have to admire his positive attitude. Once the game’s over, that’s it, nothing can be done.

Sure it’ll be hurting Klopp. It’ll be hurting badly.

But this is how you get over the pain of a cup final defeat.
