Liverpool missed out winning their 20th top-flight title in agonising circumstances as Manchester City were crowned champions for the fourth time in five years on a thrilling final day of the season. After the game, Reds boss Klopp congratulated City on their achievement and had words of praise for Villa and Wolves too. Congratulations to Man City and Pep Guardiola. Thank you to Aston Villa and Wolverhampton for making a proper game of it.
Jurgen Klopp said: “It’s not the result we wanted. It was a bit of a rollercoaster. I don’t know the results exactly but I know they were 1-0 up – where they 2-0 up as well? Of course at the moment there’s disappointment here as well. If it’s 5-0 to City after 10 minutes it’s just a normal game for us. It wasn’t our best game either, but it’s all good – 92 points is absolutely incredible. We wanted it all, but now it’s OK. [Finishing second] is the story of my life. I’m still record holder for not getting promoted in Germany with the highest points tally. You need to get more points than any other teams, but we didn’t do that. You can’t do more than give your absolute best and that’s what the boys did again. We chased the best team in the world to the wire, that’s absolutely special. We’ll build a team again and go again.”
