It’s a tough question, and one that Jurgen Klopp and his backroom team will be thinking long and hard about as the dust settles on what was an incredible campaign for the Merseysiders.
Klopp delivered a trophy in his third full season in charge at Anfield, lifting the Champions League trophy in Madrid to end his run of defeats in his previous six finals as manager at Liverpool and previously Borussia Dortmund.
It was a deserved end to the season for Klopp and his players, who showed a new side to their game during a campaign where they ensured the Premier League didn’t become a one-horse race, ala the French Ligue 1. To even keep pace with Manchester City was commendable in itself, but to also beat Bayern Munich and Barcelona enroute to winning ‘Number Six’ was even more impressive.
And all that achieved while using just 26 players (four fewer than Manchester City). This is one of the crucial areas that needs to strengthened this summer: squad depth.
