Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has congratulated Manchester City for beating his side to win the 2018/19 Premier League title on Sunday, May 12.
The 2018/19 Premier League season ended with Manchester City beating Brighton to win the title thereby finishing with a point on-top of their rival Liverpool.
Liverpool beat Wolves in their last game of the season to finish second on the Premier League standings despite losing only one game in the out-gone term.
"Congratulations to Manchester City . We tried everything to make it as difficult as possible but not difficult enough. I couldn’t be more proud of the boys.
"It’s incredible what they did all season and today was a strange situation. We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear. You can’t tell the people to calm down.
"At that moment when Liverpool fans celebrated Brighton's goal it was a shock for everyone and Wolves were there. We had to fight. In the end we scored two and kept a clean sheet. It’s nice but not how we wanted it.
"It’s clear we had to work hard and City too. Our target during the week was to get 97 points, we got that – that’s special,'' Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will now focus on the final of the Champions League where they will face Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final in Madrid.
