Maurizio Sarri sympathizes with Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool lose title race

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp missed out on the English Premier League title by just a single point, with Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri revealing that he understands the German's pain after missing out on the Serie A last season.

Manchester City clinched the 2018-2019 title after a 4-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion and despite Liverpool beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0, the Reds still fell short of the crown. Sarri had a similar experience in his final season at Napoli when the club reached a record 91 points, however, that was still not enough to overthrow Juventus who were four points above them.

Speaking in a press conference after the barren draw against Leicester City, Sarri sympathized with Klopp, "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."
