The Reds were 25 points clear of second-placed Manchester City and seemingly just a couple of weeks away from being crowned champions when football in this country was halted because of coronavirus last month.
Jurgen Klopp believes his Liverpool team are only going to get better in the coming years
Klopp has plenty of young talent in his squad and he has promised to blood them through
A top-flight title would be their first in the Premier League era while they won the Champions League last season.
While he has presided over a side that has enjoyed almost unprecedented levels of dominance in recent months, Klopp insists Liverpool can get even better.
‘This team is not a finished article,’ Klopp told Sky Sports News. ‘It’s not done yet, we have a lot of space for improvement yet.
‘There is fresh blood internally coming up. We can mix things through. We can improve it with this team which is really great.
‘We will not change, that’s the first thing, but whether we will be successful depends on what other clubs are doing as well because they have all the chance to improve things, do things better. So I have no clue what the future will hold for us.’
Klopp also opened up on the start of his time at Anfield, and explained how grateful he is to have been given time by the owners.
After a difficult start, the German has turned the Reds into one of the major forces in world football, and the team look set to win trophy after trophy in the coming years.
‘It was clear we needed time, that we couldn’t fix it over night,’ he said. ‘When I had to ask for time, that’s how it is. Before that in my career I’ve never had the sack, but now I’m on a different level.
‘The nice thing was after a few, 6, 7, 8 games, the owners were already positive. They realised we are on the right path and they didn’t question it. After that they were full of faith and trust, the path we stay on everything will be fine.
‘We never really talked about losing finals against City and Madrid. Pundits said, “if he doesn’t win the next one he will have to change something.” That’s how it is, but internally no one really thought like this.’
Unsurprisingly, the subject of the coronavirus was also high on the agenda, with the panel asking Klopp for his thoughts on when football might resume.
‘We will see, they [Germany] are all very optimistic they will start mid-May,’ he responded. ‘We will see what that means.
‘We will see when that starts here. We know what we want, and the first thing that we want is that everybody is safe and healthy. In the moment it is possible to start training again, we will do that.
‘We are all at home, all isolated, we have no cases or stuff like this. If we come together and train in groups of two or five or six or eight, I’m not sure when that will be possible, we have to wait for the government on that. We cannot force that and will not, because we can’t, there’s absolutely nothing for that.’
