Latest Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp confident Liverpool will come back stronger
The Reds were always up against it trying to hunt Manchester City down on the final day. City needed to drop points while Liverpool had to win their game.
We did our bit by defeating Wolves but the Cityzens picked up a 4-1 win away at Brighton to defend their title. The Reds ended the season on 97 points, an all-time high for the club, and just one behind the Cityzens.
Klopp praised City for their incredible season and was pleased with how things went for the Reds (h/t Liverpool Echo):
“Our season was good as well, yeah? It was an unbelievable season. I can read all the stats, I can read all the numbers, it’s just really exceptional.”
The German lauded the development of the side from last season and was adamant that the Reds had not peaked:
“It was completely different. We used the base from last year, but we have made a big step. Unbelievable.
“And there is more to come. This team is not a finished article. This team tried it the first time (to win the title), and I really think they did it quite impressively for a first time.”
Champions League calling
Liverpool made it to successive Champions League finals after overcoming Barcelona in the semi-final, and Klopp added that facing Tottenham on June 1 and doing well in the league was “pretty special”.
The Reds have been exceptional this season and barely put a foot wrong in the domestic campaign. They were just undone by a better City team that won its last 14 Premier League games.
