Two finals in his first seven months. It is not a bad way to start your Liverpool managerial career. Jurgen Klopp failed to guide the Reds to League Cup success this season but he can still pick up some silverware after taking them to the final of the Europa League.
Trailing 1-0 from the semi-final first leg with Villarreal, they beat the Spanish side 3-0 in the second leg at Anfield.
Bruno Soriano's early own goal levelled the tie before Daniel Sturridge, left out of the team in Spain, then put the hosts in command.
After Villarreal's Victor Ruiz was sent off, Adam Lallana made the win safe and booked a showdown with Europa League holders Sevilla in Basel on 18 May.
