Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp says that this season is the first step for his squad in their journey after they finished second in the Premier League
Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool’s record-breaking season is just the “first step” for his team after they were pipped to the Premier League title by Manchester City.
Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday, but City’s 4-1 win at Brighton meant Klopp’s side finished just a point short with a record tally of 97 points for a second-place side.
The German insists Liverpool could not have done more to win the title, as attention turns to their Champions League final against Tottenham on June 1 in Madrid.
He told Sky Sports: “People might say we could have done this or that but not really, I don’t think [we could have done any more]. City were lucky in moments, we were lucky in moments. It was about staying in the race and believing and that’s what we did.
“When your opponent is City, it’s difficult. They couldn’t get rid of us and we couldn’t get rid of them. Being second in the Premier League is not exactly what I wanted but we have to see it as the first step for this team. We have three weeks to prepare for the Champions League final – let’s give it a go.
