As the countdown continues to the Champions League Final against Tottenham, Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum says the Reds’ season merits them winning a trophy (Liverpool 1/2 – Champions League Winners).
Jurgen Klopp’s men were desperately unlucky to miss out on their first Premier League title when they were pipped by Manchester City in a race that went down to the last match of the season.
They amassed the third-highest points total ever in the top flight and lost just one game but, despite that, it was not enough to bring them the title.
There is still one more chance for glory when they travel to Madrid on June 1 to face Spurs in the Champions League Final and Wijnaldum believes they deserve some silverware after such a great campaign (Liverpool 21/20, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 3/1 – Match odds).
“If you look back when you’re on vacation on this season, I think everyone will realise we had a really good season, a wonderful season,” Wijnaldum told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Ninety-seven points, we’d normally be champion with. But in this case, City had one point more and they turned champions.
“Overall, I think we had a good season and now is the challenge to finish with a title to make the season complete.
“It would be really sad if we finish the season without a title, especially because I think we were quite consistent this season and we did so good.
“I think this season deserves one.”
