Inside phone call Klopp made 10 seconds before final whistle for title triumph

Jurgen Klopp brought his Liverpool boys together to watch the Chelsea-City match that would finally see them crowned Premier League champions.

While they couldn't celebrate on the streets with ecstatic fans, it still looked like they had a pretty good party.

But boss Klopp wasn't actually there when the final whistle was blown, as he stepped out 10 seconds before to make a phone call.

He decided he wanted to be on the phone to his family for the historical moment as he wanted to tell them he loved them.

Speaking to the media on Friday, he said: "I called my family 10 seconds before the final whistle. We had a FaceTime call."

He also explained what the family discussed in those all important seconds, and its very, very sweet.

He said: "I told them I loved them, they told me, they loved me. It's sad I can't be with them. I told them to leave it on.

"It was a really nice moment."

However he soon went back to the party, and the group partied the night away.

Klopp was filmed dancing along to Nightcrawlers club classic Push The Feeling On while his squad cheered him on.

And speaking to Sky Sports on Friday the German said he is a fan of strutting his stuff when the occasion calls for it.

"I don’t know what dance it was, honestly. I dance.

"I do that from time to time. We were in a good mood, the music was good.

"It's not that it's important, that's just me. If I want to dance, I'll dance. I don't do it for the boys or whatever.

"We were in a good mood obviously, so it happened not for the first time on an evening event. The boys know that I like a dance from time to time, when it's appropriate and we have the opportunity to do it.

"Last night was a good moment in my life so I expressed that on the dance floor as well.

"The reason for coming together was the right one, which is why we came together. I was always a better dancer than a football player. Unfortunately I couldn’t make my life with dancing."

Liverpool are 23 points clear of closest challengers City, whose reign as Premier League champions came to an end, with 28 wins, two draws and only one defeat from their 31 matches

And Klopp hailed his Liverpool players after writing their own history by winning the Premier League title.

The German added: "The players wanted to write their own history and stories so they were ready not to compare us with those great figures in this club.

"We were unbelievably good last year and smashing this record is absolutely exceptional. It is really difficult to get there."

On whether he will get a statue like the Reds' previous title-winning managers, Klopp joked: "They all got theirs when they were not here. I want to live for 30 or 40 years!"
