Jurgen Klopp insists that Liverpool will “come again”2 min read
Jurgen Klopp vowed to bounce back and “go again” next season after Liverpool lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid at the end of a mammoth campaign.
The Reds won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup with penalty shoot-out victories against Chelsea, then took the Premier League title race to the final day before Manchester City pipped them by a point.
Liverpool had hoped to end the season with the club’s seventh European Cup but Real Madrid were crowned continental champions for a record 14th time in Paris.
Vinicius Junior’s second-half goal secured Carlo Ancelotti’s side a 1-0 victory at the Stade de France, where kick-off was delayed by 36 minutes due to security issues outside the ground.
“These boys played an outstanding season,” said Klopp, whose side will go on a parade through Liverpool on Sunday.
“The two competitions we couldn’t win, we didn’t for the smallest possible margin: one point, 1-0.
“City during the season, they were one point better and tonight Madrid was one goal better. That says nothing about us.
“The difference between 2018 and now is that I see us coming again.
“In 2018, I wished it but I couldn’t know, but these boys are really competitive, they have an incredible attitude. It is a fantastic group. We will go again definitely.
“Tomorrow we will celebrate the season. It is good we don’t have to do that immediately but after a night’s sleep and maybe another speech from me, the boys will realise how special it was what we did.
“Even if nobody on this planet would understand (why) we have a parade tomorrow, we still will do it.
“I really hope everybody has a chance to get to Liverpool tomorrow to celebrate together with us a fantastic season that didn’t end as we wanted. That’s fact but the club is in a good moment, we will go again.”
