Jurgen Klopp: Premier League near-miss is only Liverpool's 'first step'
Jurgen Klopp vowed this season was just the "first step" for his Liverpool team as he congratulated Manchester City on pipping his side to the Premier League title on Sunday. Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday thanks to two goals from Sadio Mane, but City came from behind to win 4-1 at Brighton and retain their title by a single point.
It meant Liverpool ended the season on 97 points, the third-highest tally in Premier League history, but fell agonisingly short of securing their first English top-flight title since 1990.

"Congratulations to Manchester City," Liverpool boss Klopp told the BBC. "We tried everything to make it as difficult as possible but not difficult enough. I couldn't be more proud of the boys.
"It's incredible what they did all season and today was a strange situation. We were really good until 1-0, what happened then was clear. You can't tell the people to calm down."
