    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that winning the Premier League is an ‘unbelievable’ achievement, praising his ‘incredible’ players for ending the Reds’ 30-year wait for a 19th top-flight crown.

    The Reds were confirmed as champions for the first time since 1990, after Chelsea defeated Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, ending any faint hopes that Pep Guardiola’s side had of winning a third consecutive Premier League title.

    Klopp’s side have been the standout team of the season, winning 28 of their 31 games played this season while playing some blistering, high-octane football. Now, with a maiden Premier League crown under his belt, the German has told Sky Sports in an emotional interview just how much it means to him to lead Liverpool to an ‘absolutely incredible’ achievement.

    “I have no words. It is unbelievable, much more than I thought was possible,” Klopp began in an online interview, conducted alongside Liverpool legends Sir Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher.

    “Becoming champions with this club is absolutely incredible. This is for Kenny, for Stevie – everyone! The Manchester City game was really tense, I didn’t want to be involved. It was intense but it is incredible from my players. What they have done over the last few years in exceptional and it’s a pure joy for me to coach them.

    “This is a big moment, I have no real words. I am completely overwhelmed. I never thought I would feel like this…”

    Klopp – who’s eight predecessors in the Reds’ hot seat failed to deliver top flight glory – also insisted that it was right for players and supporters to celebrate Liverpool’s achievement as a collective, adding that he and his squad were looking to a trophy parade – at some point.

    “It’s very important to celebrate because these moments are unforgettable,” Klopp added. “We have pictures from the season and now we have pictures of the celebrations and we will create pictures in the future with the parade with our supporters.

    “The boys have time together tonight. It’s difficult out there still for a lot of people but tonight we couldn’t hold back, we had to come together.

    “There’s a sense of relief because after the three-month interruption no one knew how the season would come back. This is for all of the fans. I hope they celebrate it, it’s all in our hearts and our heads, we do it all together and it’s a joy to do this for the fans.”
