Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that while Bayern Munich would do well in the Premier League, they would not dominate the competition the way they do the Bundesliga.

Munich’s stranglehold on the German top-flight continued this season when they won their fifth consecutive title. And Klopp, who has experienced the league first hand, felt it was harder to win the Premier League.

“It would not be easy for Bayern to win the Premier League. But their chances to win it are not that low,” said Klopp, who is trying to navigate his Mersyside club to the Champions League next season. A win against relegated Middlesbrough on Sunday will guarantee that.

“We would be very disappointed if we did not qualify for the Champions League,” said the German.

“To call the Europa League failure, which we are qualified for already, is not my view.

“Inside the club, people see the development which is very positive. We’ve got 73 points and the chance to move on to 76. This shows that we play a very stable season,” added Klopp.

The club have shown gradual improvement under Klopp, and there is optimism around Anfield that the German will deliver the club’s first league title since 1990 sooner rather than later.
