Klopp disappointed with league defeat but upbeat for team's future

SHOWS: LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND, UK (MAY 12, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP SPEAKING AT POST GAME NEWS CONFERENCE AFTER WINNING MATCH 2-0 OVER WOLVERHAMPTON BUT FINISHING RUNNER-UP TO MANCHESTER CITY FOR PREMIER LEAGUE TITLE 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING: "It's disappointing, it's not a wonderful moment, it's not exactly like that, but we have enough time to find out what and see exactly and feel maybe how brilliant the season was.

It was brilliant!

97 points is incredible!

And only because City is there it's not enough.

In any other country it would have been easily enough but here, that's how it is.

No problem with that, that's the competition that we are in, it's not the competition of 30 years ago, of 20 years ago, of 10 years ago, that's completely different and these boys were really ready for it and they have my maximum respect, not only them because I have to say a lot of people say about Liverpool supporter-base or whatever, that they're so desperate about winning the league and stuff like that.

How they followed this path, how they follow that way, it's just incredible.

This club is in its best moment for a long long time and it will not end because there's one team with a point more." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUERGEN KLOPP, LIVERPOOL MANAGER, SAYING: "People really love what the boys did over the year.

That's already special after such a long season with all the things you could say about us at this club.

We can decide how we deal with that, which information we take out of that, nobody else can decide that and if we are ready to make the next step then we will make the next step and that's the plan obviously starting from tomorrow on(wards)." STORY: Liverpool's 29-year wait for a league title will continue after they had to settle for runners-up spot behind Manchester City despite Sunday's (May 12) 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the Premier League season.

The victory for Juergen Klopp's side at Anfield on Sunday thanks to Sadio Mane's double became irrelevant to the title outcome as City won 4-1 at Brighton & Hove Albion to ensure their second straight league crown.

It will be hard to stomach for Liverpool after such an excellent campaign but Klopp's men, beaten just once in the Premier League this season, finished one point behind City with 97, a record total for a team coming runners-up.

The midweek drama of Liverpool's 4-0 win over Barcelona to reach the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur on June 1, removed some of the disappointment on an afternoon that ended with a lap of honour from the players with their families.

The day began with the possibility that Liverpool's first league title since 1990 could be secured if a remarkable week of football ended with another upset, this time at Brighton.

Liverpool certainly played like they believed that could happen, especially when Mane put them ahead in the 17th minute, meeting a low cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold and sweeping home from close range.

News of Brighton taking the lead against City, brought inevitable roars from the crowd and, even with Pep Guardiola's side quickly replying, for 21 minutes, until City got in front, Liverpool were temporarily in the top spot.

But as news of their title rivals' progress at Brighton filtered through, Liverpool's intensity gradually faded.

Liverpool eventually made sure of the win when Mane added his second in the 81st, again assisted by Alexander-Arnold whose deep cross was nodded home by the Senegalese at the back post.

Liverpool strikers Salah and Mane both ended the season on 22 league goals, sharing the 'Golden Boot' award with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
