Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confessed that the Reds’ Premier League title success was more than the German ever thought would be possible.
The Merseyside outfit ended their 30-year-long wait for a title on Thursday evening as Manchester City fell to a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. The result sparked wild celebrations from supporters and players alike as Liverpool’s relentless pursuit of glory this season came to an end.
However, despite having already lifted the UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup titles in the past year, Klopp admitted that lifting the club’s maiden Premier League crown was beyond even his wildest dreams.
Talking to Sky Sports, the 53-year-old said: “I have no words.
“It’s the best thing I can imagine and more than I could have ever dreamed of. It’s unbelievable. Much more than I ever thought would be possible.
“Becoming champions with this club is absolutely incredible.
“It is an incredible achievement from my players… and a pure joy for me to coach them.”
The Reds’ title charge this campaign has been one of the most emphatic in the history of the division. They were confirmed as champions with seven matches left to play and sit 23 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City.
Of course, the Merseysiders will be aiming to add to their advantage and edge ever closer to the points record as they return to action on Thursday ironically against Pep Guardiola’s men. Liverpool can be backed at odds of 11/5 with William Hill to win their first game as champions.
