Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has turned his attention to the Champions League finals after missing the Premier League title on the final day.

The Reds did all they could do but fell short in the title race after Manchester City came from two goals down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 to defend their title despite Liverpool beating Wolves on the same day.

“The boys played an incredible season. The whole journey of 2021-22 so far is absolutely exceptional. Congratulations to Manchester City and Pep Guardiola, all staff and all players, and the whole club, for being champions. We were close but in the end not close enough.,” Klopp said after the game.

Missing the league title deflated the club’s ambition of winning the quadruple but Klopp insists that it gives them an extra motivation to win the treble as they have another final against Real Madrid coming up.

“We will try absolutely everything. It’s never happened before that you go completely without knocks into a final. We had our knocks. Losing the league today increases the desire to win next week,” he added.

The Reds will be up against Madrid in Paris this coming weekend as they seek to revenge for their loss to the Spanish side in 2018.
