'We're Not Going Anywhere' - Robertson Defiant After Title Heartbreak

'We're Not Going Anywhere' - Robertson Defiant After Title Heartbreak

After the most titanic of title battles, Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions. Liverpool were with them every step of the way, accumulating a massive 97 points, one less than their rivals.

That total would have been enough to win the league in any season apart from the last two, and it is incredibly harsh on Jurgen Klopp's side to miss out.

On the past two occasions where Liverpool have come close to claiming the title, they were unable to build on it. The worry after such a strong showing this campaign this time around is how can they improve upon it next season?

Speaking on the pitch after today's win over Wolves, Andy Robertson said that Liverpool just short against an incredible City team. More importantly, he also said this team will be in it for the long haul:

We've come up against an incredible team. For us to get that close shows just how far we've come, we've come a long way and we've closed the gap to City. The good thing is City know we're here now.

We're not going anywhere, this squad will stay together. We've got to to put everything into next season, we've not done much wrong but we have to learn from it. We've still got a massive game coming up, and then we can worry about next season.

We have come up against an incredible team, but this team isn't bad as well.

Of course, the season isn't over for this Liverpool team. They have the small matter of the Champions League final to contend with on June 1st, when Spurs will stand in the way of a sixth European Cup triumph.

While the end to their Premier League campaign will sting, Robertson believes that finishing the season as champions of Europe will be no mere compensatory prize:

Man City deserve all the credit they can get because nobody lost the Premier League this season, it's been won. It''s been won by an unbelievable team and we have kept up with them, but we fell just short.

We're in the final now, and we need to take one step further than we did last season. If we can do that then it'll be a hell of a season.
