"People don't tell me in the street since then: 'Thank you for bringing us to the final.' We were in the Europa League final too".
"I see no trophies after these games".
A James Milner own-goal six minutes later levelled proceedings before Georginio Wijnaldum restored the Reds advantage on 25 minutes.
Mohamed Salah, with 10, Roberto Firmino, 10, and Sadio Mane scoring his ninth of the campaign on Wednesday night made Liverpool's front line the highest scoring trio at a club in a single Champions League season, overtaking Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo who hit 28 in the 2013-14 campaign.
"I was part of the Champions League a few times".
Roma, knowing only another historic night at the Stadio Olimpico would see them into the final - they became the first team to come back from a three-goal deficit in the quarterfinals with a dramatic win over Barcelona - started the match at blistering pace.
"For both teams it would have been insane had we played extra time. Beating them is like beating the Invincibles, although Klopp thinks Zidane's Madrid is a giant with feet of clay and there's some sense in that".

Brighton, meanwhile, can secure Premier League safety with a win over Jose Mourinho and company, as they now rest in 14th position, five points above Southampton in the first danger spot.
"Somehow, we just show up for that stage".
"I would also like to thank the stewards and staff from Liverpool Football Club for their support and assistance". Alberto got a little bit of a knock. Klopp has already proved he can overthrow an established superpower after leading Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title despite the constant threat from Bayern Munich.
"I can not do it alone".
