Liverpool’s regret: Season for the ages has sour ending

PARIS (AP) — It was only a week ago that Liverpool stood on the cusp of immortality. A quadruple of major trophies and possibly the greatest ever single season by a club in football history was in tantalizing reach. Except Manchester City pulled off a stunning late comeback in a final-day win in the Premier League last weekend to finish one point ahead of Liverpool. Then Jurgen Klopp’s team lost 1-0 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday to be denied a seventh European Cup. The history books will say Liverpool finished the 2021-22 season with the League Cup and FA Cup trophies. But it still feels like an opportunity gone begging.
