Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp delivered a rousing speech just hours after the club were beaten at the hands of Sevilla in the Europa League final. 

This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that the German coach then went on to sing to his players in the hotel. 

The report suggests that the club had a party planned at their hotel after the final in Switzerland and, despite the Reds suffering a 3-1 defeat, it appears that Klopp was determined for it to go ahead.

Indeed, Klopp, who has lost his last five finals as a manager, certainly didn't want his players to dwell on the defeat. 

According to the Mail, the former Borussia Dortmund coach gathered his playing staff and backroom team together on the dance floor to deliver a speech. 

Klopp speech 

Klopp told them: 'Two hours ago you all felt s***. Now hopefully you all feel better. This is just the start for us. We will play in many more finals.'

But Klopp didn't stop there. It appears that a speech wasn't enough for the revered coach to cheer up his players. 

He then opted to start singing: 'We are Liverpool, tra-la-la-la!'  

That's that then. The party continued and the Liverpool players had to attempt to forget about what had gone before them. 

What's next for Liverpool? 

It was, of course, a major blow for the club in their pursuit of success under Klopp. They will be without European football next season, but that could yet have a positive impact on their domestic campaign. 

Without as many fixtures, the Reds can concentrate on improving on this season's poor showing in the Premier League. 

They may well have enjoyed fine cup runs - as well as the Europa League final, they made it to the Capital One Cup final - but they only managed to secure an eighth place finish in England's elite division. 

For a club of Liverpool's stature, that's by no means good enough. Klopp will be well aware of that and will be determined to help them climb the table next term. 

After one of the craziest seasons English football has ever witnessed, there's no reason why the 2016/17 campaign won't be just as interesting. With Klopp at the helm on Merseyside, Liverpool could be set for a very interesting campaign.
