Jürgen Klopp has said he wants the Premier League champions to be even more uncomfortable to play against next season.
“We will not change: we try to improve,” he said. “Is it possible to improve it for a longer period? I would say yes. We make a cut when the season is finished on Sunday, enjoy it, be happy, and then mid-August we start training again and from that moment on, we will try it again with all we have and nothing will hold us back.
“It is a really nice story the boys have written over the years, but it is not finished yet – we decide when it is finished.”
When lockdown started in March, Liverpool had already taken 82 points from 29 matches, with one loss and one draw.
They thus secured their first title in 30 years by winning more than even second-placed Manchester City would achieve if they win on Sunday today.
Wednesday’s 5-3 victory over Chelsea marked three seasons for Liverpool to have stayed unbeaten at home in the league.
However, as they approach their final match at Newcastle with an 18-point lead, Klopp is expecting still more from his players (via The Guardian):
“I want to see us fighting for whatever the next trophy is, fighting on the pitch and enjoying the hard work and as long as we do that, we have a good chance. First thing, as always, is to be a team no one wants to play against. I think we are like this but we can be more uncomfortable.”
