After their epic title challenge this season, it was a hard pill to swallow to see Liverpool fall just one point short of the summit. The consolation — and what a consolation it is — is that the Reds are headed to Madrid in a few weeks to battle it out in another Champions League final.
Captain Jordan Henderson admits that the players are disappointed not to lift the trophy, but maintains that they have no regrets.
“It’s obviously disappointment,” Henderson told the official site.
“We always believed that, until the last day, if we kept doing what we were doing then we’d maybe [win it] so it’s disappointing, obviously.
“But I think after a few days, when we’ve got time to reflect, I think we’ll be proud of how we’ve performed this season and how we’ve pushed City right until the very end.
“They’re an amazing team so they deserve it, congratulations to them. We’ve pushed them all the way and hopefully next year we’ll come back even stronger.”
It’s exciting times to be a Liverpool fan right now, and it will be fascinating to see what moves Klopp and the transfer committee make this summer to strengthen for next season.
