Rafael Benitez is convinced the Liverpool side which will head into Champions League final battle with Real Madrid on Saturday is better than the one he led to glory in 2005.

Paul Ince has claimed that Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool FC team have the same mentality as Sir Alex Ferguson's great Manchester United teams.

Now, ahead of leading the Reds out in the Champions League final in his first stint in the competition with his club, Klopp has spoken about why Merseyside was the right fit for him.

After a number of difficulties at Liverpool, with the current captain seeing his side fall just short of four major honours throughout his time with the club, Henderson now has the opportunity to guide the Reds to their finest achievement in over a decade; with only Real Madrid standing between them and their sixth European Cup.

Klopp predicted there would be more finals, outlining his vision of where he wanted the club to go, and Henderson was hooked.

'So when you see the pictures, and I realise it as well, by the way, I look still like a player. that's not cool, but that's me. I'd say after watching the FA Cup Final, United fans wish they still had that mentality now.

"I'm sure there will be new players coming in the summer as well, which they will be coming into a very good group of players, and hopefully they can strengthen us to win trophies". And I thought 'wow, that's not the game I love. "(I can) definitely see how hungry the team are to be successful".

That feeling of unity around the club has not been restricted to within the dressing room, either, as players and supporters have shared several special moments throughout the campaign.

Despite losing the second leg 2-0, the Bundesliga outfit made it through to the final at Wembley, where they were eventually beaten 2-1 by rivals Bayern Munich.

"This team also has good balance, but the three players up front can make a difference on their own".

"A little thing. Liverpool is a world class brand, big, big, big, but in Melwood, you know it Robbie, it is still a family, nothing else, and you can go in and feel that".
