  • Klopp believes his side will challenge again next season

WHAT HAPPENED? Speaking after his side's 4-4 draw at Southampton, which brought the curtain down on a disappointing season for the Reds, Klopp told reporters that work would now take place to strengthen his squad ahead of a push for trophies and success next term.

WHAT THEY SAID: Klopp said: "Now we can start preparing for the future. I don’t feel like I need a break, not at all. Honestly I’m completely fine. If you’d have asked me 11 games ago if you want to have a break, then I’d have thought about it, to be honest! But I’m absolutely fine, full of energy.

"I have a break – I don’t have training and those kind of things – but a pretty busy period hopefully starts now as well, in a different area of the game, and I’m more than happy to do that. I will find time to re-energise and then we start again in July."
