EPL: I feel sorry for Klopp, I’ve achieved what Chelsea demanded of me – Sarri

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has described the just concluded Premier League season as a difficult one, adding that Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has his pity.

Talking about Klopp, Sarri said it was very hard to gain 97 points in the Premier League without winning it.

The Italian also said that he has achieved what the club demanded of him when he joined from Napoli which was to take them to the Champions League.

“The season was really very difficult for us but I think at the end we are happy, we are happy because we went in trouble three months ago and at the end we are in the third position and reached the target of the club, the Champions League.

“We played a final against Manchester City in the League Cup and before the final in the League Cup we played against Liverpool and Tottenham, the two finalists of the Champions League.

“Now we have to play a very important match in the final of the Europa League, so at the moment this season is very good. The season can become wonderful. It was really very difficult, every match is really very difficult.

“Now I think of Klopp. Because if you are able to gain 97 points in the Premier League without winning it is really very hard. I thought that I was unlucky in the last season in Serie A because we arrived in second place with 91 and now I can understand very well the feeling of Klopp.”

“I can say only that the club asked me for the Champions League and we have reached the Champions League. I can say only this.”

“As you know very well I love English football and the Premier League, it is fantastic and the level is the best in Europe, the world I think. The atmosphere in the stadium is wonderful. I like very much to stay here.”
