Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he feels “really sorry” for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool FC after they missed out on the Premier League title this season.

The Reds had been hoping to pip Manchester City to the Premier League title this term, but they were unable to catch Pep Guardiola’s men, who ended up defending their top-flight title.

Liverpool FC ended up in second place in the Premier League table and a point behind Manchester City after their 2-0 win over Wolves on Sunday, with the Reds having amassed an incredible 97 points this season.

Sarri’s Napoli team ended up with 91 points last season but still finished second to Juventus in the Serie A table.

And Sarri has sent a heartfelt message to Klopp and the Liverpool FC supporters after their title disappointment on Sunday.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Sarri said: “I thought I was unlucky at Napoli [losing the title] with 91 points. It will be very difficult [for us to close the gap], Liverpool lost the Premier League with 97 points,

“I’m really sorry for Liverpool fans and [Jurgen] Klopp but the season of Manchester City was wonderful.

“We have to work and try to recover the gap. It will be difficult.”

Liverpool FC can still end the season on a high, however, as they will face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final in Madrid on 1 June.

The Reds are aiming to go one step further than they did last season, when they were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev.
