Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

CHAM­PI­ONS LEAGUE: De­jan Lovren has promised that Liverpool will bounce back and be­come even stronger fol­low­ing their Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal heart­break.

No one ex­pected Jur­gen Klopp’s side to get to the fi­nal when they be­gan the cam­paign with a qual­i­fier against Hof­fen­heim in Au­gust, but Lovren in­sists the im­prove­ment wit­nessed through­out the sea­son will con­tinue when the new cam­paign be­gins in just over two months.

“I’m proud of the team, I’m proud of the play­ers. They gave ev­ery­thing,” said the Croa­tia de­fender, who put in an im­pres­sive dis­play to keep Cris­tiano Ron­aldo quiet.

“I’m proud of the fans who trav­elled such a long way to sup­port us. I prom­ise that next year we will come back even stronger be­cause I feel this team is grow­ing every day.

“We beat the best teams in Europe. We beat Man City, who had a fan­tas­tic sea­son in the Pre­mier League. We need to find the pos­i­tives.”
