Klopp then reserved some special words for Mohamed Salah who scored his 32nd league goal of the season and said he is confident Liverpool can challenge Man City.

Andy Robertson also broke his duck late on to put the icing on the cake, 4-0 to Liverpool the final score and the Reds getting back to form ahead of the Champions League final.

"What the boys did this season was unbelievable", Klopp told Sky Sports while taking in a lap of honour after the game.

But the England global came off the bench in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Brighton in the final league game of the season.

Jurgen Klopp explained the decision to leave out the 32-year-old, who now faces a race to be fit in time for the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26.

Speaking about his pursuit of both this season's golden boot and the all-time scoring record, Salah said: "Honestly as you can see, I have had a great season and still some games to go".

"We had a lot of injury problems and the group of players which was involved today have to do the job all the time". I am really proud of the boys.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss confirmed he intends to add to his squad in the next transfer window, yet insisted there would be no major overhaul on Merseyside as they attempt to make up ground on runaway champions Manchester City.

Following that, Klopp will be hoping he will be able to close the gap on City, who finished the season with 100 points after a last-minute victor against Southampton.

"We flew up to Manchester City (where they lost 3-1) during the week and had a very hard game, and to come and do it again a few days later I think maybe took its toll a little bit. But we have to try to get three points against Newcastle, then to drop something positive for us", Conte said. He now has two weeks to prepare for our biggest game and now I am really looking forward to it.

"We have matured and we will do that again". But I am still a big believer in developing a team and these boys made a big step and I'm sure they can do another one'.

Kop icon Kenny Dalglish presented him with that plus his PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year gongs.
