It was sad day for Liverpool – Gundogan names club to compete with Man City next season
Liverpool's Premier League title was lost by just one point on Sunday, according to Manchester City forward Ilkay Gundogan.
The Reds had a great season, he said, winning the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup, reaching the Champions League final, and fighting for the Premier League crown until the final day.
Pep Guardiola's side won the Premier League title thanks to Gundogan's stunning comeback on the last day of the season.
From the first half until deep into the second half, City were 2-0 down and heading for second place. Gundogan came off the bench and pulled one back.
Rodri levelled for City before Gundogan again completed a six-minute comeback that won the title for the Pep Guardiola side.
Liverpool finished the league season on 92 points, just one behind City, and the German international praised and commiserated with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
“I know it’s tough to say, but if Liverpool weren’t there and playing the way they play, which is very successful, this league wouldn’t be that attractive,” Gundogan told Sky Sports.
“Even though they finished just one point behind us, they played an incredible season." They pushed us to the limit. It’s a sad day for them, but we need to appreciate what they’ve done, especially my former coach.
“We look forward to competing with them next season,” he added.
