"Pep Guardiola, he's come to England - like I say, there will be people who will question that Manchester City have fallen short in the Champions League, but what he achieved yesterday, and obviously he has a chance next week to win a domestic treble - puts him up there with the great managers". "Frustrated is the word [to sum up losing out]. We will go again".
The chant has been sung by City fans for some time, with the lyrics also including "Ramos injured Salah" (in the Champions League final last year), although City's players have no hesitation in altering singing "Kompany injured Salah" instead.
The squad have been given the green light to travel as long as they do not take a long-haul flight and have been asked to report back at Melwood next Monday.
"Oh mate, I just...", he said.
Following that they will have a one-week training camp in Spain (in Marbella or Majorca) before moving on to Madrid arriving two days before the final on May 30.
"We're looking forward to the FA Cup final now - what we are doing is unprecedented - and we are just thinking about the game against Watford, now".
"I think (Manchester) United must come back, Chelsea one more year with (Maurizio) Sarri will be better, Tottenham we have seen (get to the) final of the Champions League and Arsenal, when they make what they have to do, will be there as well".
Van Dijk was adamant that that will not prove hard to achieve.
Neville feels like the Catalonian has left his mark on the English game and that he could go on to win more titles with this side. City needed 98 points this season, the 2nd highest points total of all time, after they reached 100 last season, with Liverpool's 97 points leaving them with the third highest points total of all time, but without a Premier League to show for it. "We take a lot of things with us, we will take this on, and hopefully we can challenge next year and do even better".
Rival fans will mock them, but this Liverpool side has been seriously impressive.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes his side can hold their heads high despite missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point.
City became the first side in a decade to retain the title as Guardiola's demands ensured there was no drop-off at the Etihad as has happened in the seasons that followed title wins under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini.
Worryingly for the competition, Guardiola insisted City will only get stronger next season. "Ninety-seven points, it's a remarkable year".
