Senegal and Egypt will face each other for the right to be crowned champion of Africa on Monday (AEDT) at Olembe Stadium in Yaounde.
Mane scored the third goal in Senegal's 3-1 semi-final defeat of Burkina Faso to take his personal tally for the tournament to three, while Salah helped Egypt to a 3-1 penalty shootout win over host Cameroon after a 0-0 draw on Friday (AEDT).
Klopp has previously been accused of disrespecting the AFCON on several occasions. In 2020, he called the tournament's move from June to January a "catastrophe", then, in November last year, he referred to it as a "little tournament" before claiming he meant the comment in an "ironic" manner.
Now, with two of his best players set to grace the final, Klopp is thrilled to see both with the chance to create history for their nations.
Asked if he had arranged something of a viewing party with the squad, Klopp said: "I have nothing planned yet.
"I didn't think about it, but we've followed it pretty closely. It's a great achievement for both. Naby [Keita] played exceptional in the tournament, too.
"So far it's been a really successful tournament for our boys. It's exciting, but not so easy because one will be really happy after, one much less so.
"Both have a good chance to achieve something really big."
Speaking ahead of Monday's (AEDT) FA Cup fourth-round clash with Cardiff City, attention soon turned to when Salah and Mane will be available for the Reds again.
Klopp thinks there is a chance both could be available for next Friday's (AEDT) Premier League visit of Leicester City, though he accepts whichever side loses the AFCON final has a better chance of that.
"I think they will be available but we will see," Klopp added. "If one wins they'll probably fly back to home country for a celebration, that's how it is.
"I think Tuesday or Wednesday [is the] latest the winner will be back, the other one slightly earlier.
"Then I have to talk to them. One thing is they have rhythm, played quite a few games, but I have to speak to them."
