Wijnaldum: Liverpool season deserves a trophy

Wolves were in the ascendancy now, and Liverpool's players understood what was going on. Five key things to know...

Liverpool surely will not be splashing out in the same fashion as last summer.

The 48-year-old has picked up the award for the second year in a row, after he oversaw City's successful title tilt against Liverpool.

The Merseyside outfit were 2-0 winners against Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season to rack up an impressive tally of 97 points. That's clear. We need to be very, very close to perfection to win the Premier League as long as this is the case. Bayern Munich have been touted as his most probable destination, while club CEO Oliver Mintzlaff name-checked Dortmund, PSG and Liverpool when discussing his star man's future.

"Unbelievable season with a very special team". That is the competition we are in.

Before Tuesday's remarkable 4-0 comeback against Barcelona to reach a second successive Champions League final manager Jurgen Klopp had said if they did not get through they would "fail beautifully". "They took 198 points in two seasons, not bad". We made a big step. It's only the first step and we'll be there again.

"We had a really good shape, were very organised and waited for the right moments to attack".

RB Leipzig forward Werner meanwhile has just one year left on his current deal, and will most likely move this summer, even if not to Liverpool. He had a big impact but all the rest were here last season.

"We used the base from past year but made a big step, unbelievable, and there's still a bit to come". This team is one of the best to have ever played for Liverpool, 100 per cent. "That's of course what we feel in the moment".

Wijnaldum added: "The last couple of games were basically games where we could only win and look at what City were doing".

The German insists Liverpool could not have done more to win the title, as attention turns to their Champions League final against Tottenham on June 1 in Madrid.

Champions Man City were in fact the only team to beat Liverpool in the Premier League this season, with a victory at the Etihad Stadium at the start of 2019 proving vital. "An overwhelming majority of 97% told us they would be in favour of the change".

"It would be really sad if we finish the season without a title".

Sadio Mane scored both goals on Sunday against Wolves and Alisson recorded another clean sheet.
