Firmino "will be fine" for final


(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING: "Bobby (Robert Firmino) trained, was part of training last week, looked really good, everything fine.

Then we took him out again and will be in training again from tomorrow again.

So all that we saw so far looked really good and he will be fine I'm pretty sure." 2.


(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING: "We are all very excited about having a chance again, that's how it is.

Last year we played it, it's experience of course, four years ago a couple of us played another final.

So yes we probably are more experienced than the other team but Poch (Mauricio Pochettino) is probably right that it doesn't make a difference.

"It's about dealing with the situation the best way of course, but it's all about using the things that brought you to the final that's it.

So far we control our emotions in a really good way, we let them go in the right manner and all that stuff.

In the moment it's pure, pure excitement, really looking forward to it." STORY: Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has said Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino should be fit to face Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday's (June 1) Champions League final in Madrid.

Firmino missed Liverpool's memorable semi-final win over Barcelona and the final game of the Premier League season against Wolverhampton Wanderers with a muscle strain but he has responded well to his return to training said Klopp.

Liverpool return to the final following their defeat to Real Madrid in last year's showpiece in Kiev.

Klopp said they were fired up for the occasion but played down talk of them having more big-game experience than Spurs.
