Klopp hails "incredible achievement" as Reds win first Premier League title

Jurgen Klopp hailed his side's efforts as an "incredible achievement" after Chelsea's victory over Manchester City confirmed Liverpool's fist league title for 30 years.

The German has masterminded a maiden crown in the Premier League era for the Reds with a remarkable seven games to spare.

And he also praised the efforts of former Kop greats like Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard who paved the way for him.

He said: "No I have no words. Its unbelievable its much more than I ever thought was possible with this club. Its absolutely incredible.

"Knowing how much Kenny supported us, for Stevie (Gerrard) who had to wait a long time. This is all built on your soul Kenny and the likes of Stevie. I admire you and its easy for me to motivate the team because of our great history.

"Its unbelievable it was really tense the City game. I didn't want to be involved really but you watch it and then you are involved.

"You hope with the big chances that Chelsea had, then the penalty situation and stuff was quite intense.

"But it is an incredible effort from my players for the last two to three years its exceptional and pure joy for me to coach them."

The German also highlighted that he couldn't comprehend what it felt like to end the three decade wait having been at the club for less than five years.

He added: "I didn't wait thirty years I was here for four-and-a-half years but we didn't have a chance before last year so this is the second year.

"But this is a relief because of the three month interruption, no one knew how it would go on. Then you don't know how you will come back, each game is difficult.

"I was very happy last night so it gave me the feeling we will be fine.

"But tonight I can only say its for you, its for you out there. Its incredible. I hope you stay at home, go out the front of your house if you want, but do no more and celebrate it. We do it together and its a joy to do it for you.

"My coaching staff, I couldn't be more proud of what they did. What everyone at Liverpool did, its just a really exciting ride.

"We watched the game together and the players look like they have a good few years in their legs so we will try but for tonight we will enjoy this moment. Its more than I ever dreamed of.
