Jurgen Klopp puts his Liverpool players through their paces ahead of Wednesday night's Europa League final

Jurgen Klopp and Daniel Sturridge were in high spirits as Liverpool trained ahead of their clash against Sevilla in the Europa League final.

The Reds manager is looking to end his first season in charge of the Merseyside outfit on a high after he took over the reins from Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers in October.

Klopp has already led the 18-time English champions to a final this season but Liverpool lost Manchester City on penalties in the League Cup showpiece at Wembley.

However, the Reds have the chance to make amends for that defeat against Sevilla on Wednesday night as Los Che look to win the competition for a third successive season.

Liverpool’s last UEFA Cup win, in 2001, came against Spanish opponents, a remarkable 5-4 extra-time win against Alaves in Dortmund. At that time, Sevilla had never won a European competition, and were plying their trade in Spain’s second tier.
