“I’m going to push them even harder next year,” Rodgers told Sky Sports Football. “It’s a historical day and one that will live with everyone forever.

“Obviously immensely proud to overcome all the emotion that goes with it. It’s been a tough competitive season for us.

“We picked a system that we thought would allow us to open up spaces on the pitch and scored two exceptional goals.

“The mentality of the team was strong. We dealt with the physical aspect of the game and then our quality came through.”
