The Spanish side overturned a 1-0 half-time deficit to win 3-1 in Basel, consigning Liverpool and their German coach to a second final defeat in half a season.
But for the optimists, impressed by reaching two showpieces in his short spell in charge, it’s 9/4 that Klopp does go on win a trophy with the Anfield club next season.
And in years to come, how will we look back on the former Dortmund boss’ time on Merseyside? We’re offering odds of 7/2 on Klopp landing Liverpool that long-awaited league title.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Some will see reaching two cup finals in half a season as success, but the odds suggest Klopp will never be able to get Liverpool into the winners’ circle.”
With their season over, Klopp is set to spend the summer plotting, preparing and planning a fully-charged assault on the Premier League, with 9/1 available on the Reds finally ending their title drought next year.
