Liverpool principal owner John Henry has praised the "tremendous job" manager Jurgen Klopp has done in guiding the team to their first Champions League final for a decade.
Henry, the head of Fenway Sports Group, said he is looking forward to attending the game against 12-time winners Real Madrid in Ukraine at the end of the month.
Klopp is so far yet to win a major trophy with Liverpool following defeats in the Europa League final and Carabao Cup final in 2016.
If they fail to win the Champions League, Liverpool could yet need to better Chelsea's result on the final day of the Premier League campaign to finish in the top four and qualify for next season's European competition.
Chelsea could move level with Liverpool on 72 points if they beat Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
"Jurgen has done a tremendous job, as has everybody associated with the club," said Henry at an event to announce West Ham's London Stadium will host two regular season Major League Baseball matches between his Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees next summer.
"I am very, very excited to go to the Champions League final. It's for Jurgen and everyone associated with the club.
"This is for our fans around the world, this is what this club is all about - trying to win European championships.
"Our fans really pushed us past Manchester City, they pushed us past Roma so that when we were playing the away legs, we were already in such a great position."
