Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp stunned as Barcelona knocked out of Champions League
Klopp believes Man City and Barcelona were favourites of the tournament. The Catalan side lost 3-0 in Rome and were eliminated from the Champions League (4-4 on aggregate).
"I walked up the stairs and somebody told me [Roma had gone through] – I really thought it was a joke. Not that I don’t respect Roma, the absolute opposite. They have a fantastic team – Edin Dzeko, wow. They lost Mo Salah and they are in the semis, that’s quite a big thing.
"I cannot say anything about the game, I didn’t expect it before the game but I knew it was possible. This competition is quite fair and I really think a normal final would have been Manchester City against Barcelona, and now they are both out."
