In the derby of the 31st round of the Premiership, Chelsea secured the title by defeating Manchester City 2:1. Seven rounds before the end Liverpool have an unattainable 23 point advantage.
Just like the fans who welcomed the end of the game on the streets around Anfield, Liverpool players watched the broadcast of the match from Stamford Bridge and celebrated the win together
After the game Jurgen Klopp appeared in the program of English Sky Sports with teary eyes, and club legend Kenny Dalglish was in the video conference.
“I have no words, this is amazing and more than anything I’ve ever dreamed of. Being a champion with this club is fascinating. Kenny, this is for you too. I know how long you had to wait. This is for Stevie [Gerrard] too, this is for all of you.Kenny, the guys adore you and Stevie and it was never hard to motivate them since this club has such a glorious past.I didn’t want to watch the Chelsea and City game but I couldn’t stand it and I watched.It was very tense.It’s amazing that have been made by my players in the last two years and it is wonderful to be their coach,” Klopp said and adding:
“This is a great relief. Maybe not to me, because I haven’t waited 30 years but only four and a half. It’s a relief also because we didn’t know what would happen to the season and I’m overjoyed that it’s over. People, celebrate, this is for all of you. Just stay home and celebrate,” the Liverpool coach concluded.
Klopp said he expects the team to win at least one big trophy in the next four years, when he arrived at Anfield in 2015. Two years ago he won the European title last season but lost the Champions League final to Real. He missed the title by one point even he scored as many as 97 points in the Premiership last season.
