But the manager has been keen to point out this is only the beginning and Werner, a key figure in the ownership group, agrees with him on that. “We’re only going to get stronger. Ninety-seven points, it’s a remarkable year,” he said. “We obviously didn’t win the league but we’ll be back next year and we’ve got a lot of motivation to win the league next year. I’m excited.
“It was a magical season. Obviously, we’re disappointed that we (Liverpool) didn’t win the league but it was a remarkable season and the squad is exciting. “I think that we’ve made a lot of friends around the world and I think we’ve done well by our supporters. “I can’t say enough about Jurgen and all the talent on the field.”
