The Reds ultimately came up short in their efforts to secure a first league title since 1990. Despite their 2-0 win over Wolves on Sunday, Manchester City’s 4-1 triumph at Brighton secured a second successive Premier League crown for Pep Guardiola’s men.
Little wonder. Liverpool concluded the season on 97 points- the highest in club history and the most by any team not to win the Premier League title. They were beaten just once in the league season long, and will be in the Champions League final against Tottenham in Madrid to anticipate in three weeks’ time.
Werner, along with principal owner John W Henry and Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon, was there to witness it all.
And afterwards, the chairman stopped to speak to reporters about the progress being made at Liverpool.
“It was a magical season,” he said. “Obviously we’re disappointed that we 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.”
Klopp revealed in his own post-match press conference that “this is just the beginning for this Liverpool team. The German strongly believes that he age and quality of his squad ensures success in the future.
“We’re only going to get stronger,” he said. “Ninety-seven points, it’s a remarkable year.
“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.”
Werner paid special tribute to the fans, who remained in the stadium long after the final whistle to celebrate their heroes. The series of parties went on across the city long into the night.
“The support was extraordinary,” he added. “As Jurgen said, between the support on Tuesday and the way the team played on Tuesday, that was one of the great matches at Anfield.
“Now I look forward to a great match in Madrid.”
