Wenger blames hostile environment for top-four failure

Wenger blames hostile environment for top-four failure

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Liverpool "belong" in the Champions League, after leading the Reds to a top four finish for only the second time since 2009.

"I think that will help them, absolutely, next season".

Wenger, whose contract expires this summer, says his future will be decide dafter the FA Cup final on 27 May.

The Brazilian enjoyed his best season at Anfield since arriving from Inter in January 2013, scoring 13 Premier League goals and registering seven assists.

Liverpool were not in any European competition this season and another year without it would have been disastrous not only for the reputation of the club but also on the transfer front which would now be easy with Champions League football on offer.

"I would not say we're already in because qualification is qualification, but we're already looking forward to it".

The Cavs finished off the Raptors about an hour before Game 4 between the Celtics and Wizards tipped off in Washington. Beyond James, the difference once again? "You know what? That's a good question". "I want a ring", he said.


However, the England global did recover from a hip injury to appear in six of Liverpool's last seven matches of the Premier League season and help them secure a top-four spot. "Hopefully we can add to this great squad and really compete for silverware next year". They've gone through hard periods this season and bounced back in a very strong way. "It has been hard, yes, and certainly my personal situation has contributed to that but you can never question my professionalism or commitment".

He told the Daily Mail: "It's a great for Liverpool, being back in the Champions League". It's a young squad and the average age is the second-youngest in the Premier League, which is another positive - although maybe not for me because it makes me feel a lot older. It's alright when you've got Henry, Bergkamp, Pires, Ljungberg, Overmars, Petit, Sol Campbell, Vieira, Lauren... saying: "You have a shot, we have a shot" is alright then, they'll rip anybody to shreds!

"I can't wait to see who he gets in", said Houghton.

Goals by Hector Bellerin, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey sealed victory for Arsenal on Sunday but they now have a defensive headache for next week's Wembley final against Chelsea.

Sanchez also limped off clutching his thigh while Koscielny, who was sent off for a lunge on Enner Valencia, will miss the Wembley showdown through suspension.
