Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah insists there can be “no excuse” for missing out qualification for the Champions League this season.
After six continuous seasons in Europe’s premier competition, Liverpool will play in the Europa League in the 2023/24 season as Man United’s decisive 4-1 win over Chelsea on Thursday night, May 25, put an end to the Red’s slim chance of finishing in the top four.
The 30-year-old admits the team has failed and let fans down this season with a fifth-placed finish.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have underperformed all season and it was only their current 10-match unbeaten run – which included a sequence of seven victories – which gave them a remote chance of qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition.
But their participation in the Europa League, the first time Klopp has not made the top four in a full season at the club, has left Salah frustrated.
Sallah said, “I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this,”
“We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed.
“We are Liverpool and qualifying to the competition is the bare minimum.
“I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic post.
“We let you and ourselves down.”
