Jurgen Klopp explained why next season will be ‘especially difficult’, and revealed his personal plan for the next two weeks.
The Reds ended their league-winning campaign on a club-record 99 points after emerging victorious 3-1 against Newcastle.
Despite the comfortable final scoreline, Liverpool fell behind withi the first minute to a Dwight Gayle goal.
Speaking to BBC Sport regarding the match, Klopp said: “The boys played an incredible game, not a perfect game. Like you say in this country a dead rubber.
“I didn’t like the goal we conceded but it helped to make clear [what they faced]. We made so many changes after a long time of playing with similar line-ups.
“It’s not fair on their judgement because they need to get used to their game.
“We really worked in the game and got better and better and better even before the changes. But the changes helped massively.
“I liked the game. It’s far away from being perfect but over the season we did not just win games when everything was perfect, we won a lot of difficult games too.”
Stating his upcoming plan for the next two weeks after such a hectic season, Klopp said:”I’m not going to the office for a while. I will be together with my family, that’s all I need.
“Two weeks and a couple of days and we start again. It will be especially difficult next season – four weeks shorter [break]. We will use that and go again.”
