Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel will meet in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
There have been ups and downs. We just have to look ahead, try to win this and then I think we can say it’s been a pretty successful season.

Sometimes it is like that. I really enjoy this club and I’m going to give it my all and I hope I can have more opportunities to go out on the pitch and help the team.
