Jurgen Klopp says that his Liverpool squad have achieved "much more than he thought was possible" after they were crowned Premier League champions on Thursday night.

Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on his players, as well as club legends Sir Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard, after Liverpool were confirmed as Premier League champions on Thursday night.

After second-placed Manchester City suffered a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea, Liverpool were left to celebrate winning their first top-flight crown in 30 years.

Speaking to Sky Sports News after watching the game at Stamford Bridge, Klopp gave his immediate reaction to the achievement, paying credit to the influence that Dalglish and Gerrard have had on his current crop of players.

The German said: "No, I have no words. It's unbelievable it's much more than I ever thought was possible with this club. It's 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 it's easy for me to motivate the team because of our great history.

"It's 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. It's exceptional and pure joy for me to coach them."

Liverpool will now turn their attention to breaking several Premier League records, including surpassing the 100-point mark which City achieved in 2017-18.

Klopp's outfit require 15 points from their remaining seven fixtures to set a new mark.
