He noted that the Reds had an incredible season, which saw them win the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, made the Champions League final and fought for the EPL title till the last day.

Gundogan provided an incredible comeback on the final day of the season to secure the Premier League title for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Rodri levelled for City before Gundogan again completed a six-minute comeback that won the title for the Pep Guardiola side.

Liverpool finished the league season on 92 points, just one behind City, and the Germany international praised and commiserate with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“I know it’s tough to say, but if Liverpool wouldn’t be there and play the way they play, very successful, this league wouldn’t be that attractive,” Gundogan told Sky Sports.

“Even though they finished just one point behind us, they played an incredible season. They pushed us to the limit, it’s a sad day for them but we need to appreciate what they’ve done and especially my former coach.

“We look forward to competing with them next season,” he added.
