Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes the club were determined to learn from past mistakes heading into the 2019 Champions League final.
Having lost the decider against Real Madrid the season before and also finishing one point short in the race for the Premier League title in the 2018-19 season, Jurgen Klopp’s side were no stranger to falling short of silverware.
Against Tottenham however, the Reds made sure to get the job done with goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi sealing a fairly comfortable victory in the final last year.
The victory was a long time coming for Henderson and his team-mates, with the Liverpool skipper admitting the side’s previous failures left them in a good position to beat Spurs.
“It was an accumulative thing, if you obviously look at Madrid, the league that season, if you look further back to the league finals and League One finals that were lost as well,” Henderson told BT Sport.
“So if you look back there were a few moments where we’ve been through those tough times together. We always responded in the right way and we always kept going and kept improving so I knew after the last game of the league, I knew it would in some way help us going into the final to make sure it wasn’t going to happen again.
“Certainly the Madrid game, you learn a lot from playing in finals and especially a Champions League one. I felt we learnt a lot from that Madrid game.”
