Liverpool head coach, Jurgen Klopp, has reacted to the club’s English Premier league win, stating he has had a mix of emotions since their triumph.
Liverpool became the premier league champions after Chelsea beat Manchester city 2-1 on Thursday night, their first title in 30 years.
Klopp has now spoken about the nostalgic effect the success has had on him, one year after winning the UEFA Champions League.
“I am completely overwhelmed; I don’t know, it’s a mix of everything – I am relieved, I am happy, I am proud, I couldn’t be more proud of the boys,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
“How we watched the game together, we knew it could happen, it couldn’t not happen, we didn’t know. We want to play football and we are really happy that we are allowed to play again – then when it happened in that moment, it was a pure explosion.
“When we counted down the last five seconds of the game, the ref counted down a little bit longer than us so we had to look at two or three more passes!
“Then it was pure…I cannot describe it. It was a really, really nice moment. Directly after it, I felt so empty inside – I cannot believe it, I am really not happy with myself in the moment that I feel like I feel, but it’s just a little bit too much in the moment. I will be fine, nobody has to worry.
“I actually couldn’t be happier; I couldn’t have dreamed of something like that and I never did before last year, honestly. We were not close enough three years ago, a year ago we were really close…what the boys have done in the last two-and-a-half years, the consistency they show is absolutely incredible and second to none.
“Honestly, I have no idea how we do that all the time. Last night, a very good example – we played a game like the stadium is fully packed and everybody is shouting ‘Liverpool’ or whatever constantly.
“It is a wonderful moment, that’s what I can say.
