Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was as delighted as the club's success-starved fans after his side's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough secured a top-four finish and a Champions League play-off spot on Sunday.
"A club like Liverpool needs to be in the Champions League", he said.

I'm very proud of the boys. "It is the technical department who is responsible for that". "Yes, of course." He did not join in the post-match lap of appreciation - he said he wanted the players to have "the quiet lap of honour they deserved" - and he was vague and evasive about the reasons for the lack of clarity over his situation.
"This season we have improved". Tomorrow we will think about what to do next season and the pressure will be the same, to try to win. But playing in those sort of occasions and in those big games is important.
