Klopp’s x-rated response to Liverpool securing Champions League qualification

Jurgen Klopp was in no mood to reflect on the disappointing moments of Liverpool's season as the Reds overcame injuries and poor form to secure a third-place finish in the Premier League.

With their league title defence having fallen apart, Klopp's side won eight of their final 10 league matches of the season to salvage Champions League qualification from the campaign.

At one stage the Reds lost six straight league games at Anfield as the plumbed depths they have never before experience under Klopp, but the rallied and secured third spot thanks to a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on the final day, when both goals were scored by Sadio Mane.

"Perfect. It was windy like crazy. It's not good for football," Klopp told Sky Sports after the match.

"We found a way into the game, scored a great goal. Do you take more risk, or control even more? The second goal was so helpful. I didn't know about other matches.

"I'm so proud of what they've done the last 10 or 15 games and the reaction of the team in bad times. Eight wins out of 10, two draws, that's impressive.

"Energy makes all the difference and we got a lot of energy from outside (the fans).

"It was not our year for the championship. I'm really happy with third place."

When asked to reflect on the lowest moments of the campaign, Klopp added: "I don't want to pick one – it will be unfair to all the other **** moments.

"I have a holiday – it feels like the season was two years long. In three weeks I can't wait for the pre-season again."
