'Istanbul? Book your hotel' – Klopp says 'outstanding' Liverpool will bounce back and win Champions League next year

JURGEN KLOPP is already urging Liverpool fans to book their hotels for next season's Champions League final.

The German watched in agony as Real Madrid keeper Thibaut Courtois stopped everything and anything in Paris.

And it allowed Brazilian Vinicius Junior to score the winner in the French capital and win his side the game.

Klopp felt his side did enough to clinch the trophy – but is instead wishing for better luck next year.

"That's how it is, because the boys are really competitive. We will have an outstanding group again next year.
