The defender backed his side to go on a long spree of winning domestic and continental trophies, just as Barcelona did under Pep GuardiolaAfter narrowly missing out on the Premier League title last season, despite a remarkable haul of 97 points, Liverpool look destined to end their 30-year wait for the title this term.

Klopp: I feel for Pep and Man City
Jurgen Klopp says he feels for Pep Guardiola and his players after Manchester City were banned from UEFA competition for two seasons. The Premier League champions were banned from all UEFA competitions by European football's governing body on Friday for "serious breaches" to Financial Fair Play regulations.Speaking after Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Norwich, Klopp stressed the need to reserve judgment on City until more information came to the surface but expressed his admiration and sympathy for a manager and a group of players who he insists are not to blame.
'Liverpool are winning too many games. If you win nine more games then you have the best unbeaten run in English football. Being a United fan that is very sad.
'So the next time Liverpool play please make them lose. You should just let the other tam score. I hope I have convinced you to not win the league or win another match ever again. Yours sincerely, Daragh.
Daragh was left stunned though when he received an official reply from Klopp, who although politely turned down his request, also offered words of wisdom to give the young United fan hope for the future.
Klopp's reply came explaining that while he cannot make Liverpool lose by choice, he also had a duty to make Reds fans around the world happy, saying: Unfortunately, on this occasion I cannot grant your request, not through choice anyway.

Klopp also explained to the 10-year-old how dominance was not permanent and the cycle of football will lead to eventual change.
