Klopp highlighted as such after the game, hinting he was more preoccupied with instilling fitness and style rather than taking silverware in a pre-season tournament.

Liverpool beat Bayern with goals from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Sturridge, while Marko Grujic's effort was ruled out for offside.

The match finished 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes as Atletico Madrid were ahead for a large portion after Keidi Bare's 33rd-minute opener, but Liverpool equalised late on thanks to Roberto Firmino's penalty.

Regardless, Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign against Watford in the early kick-off on the opening Saturday. Simon Mignolet, who was benched on Tuesday, might be under the bar for Liverpool.

Praising his opponents, he said: "Liverpool are already in good shape - they play in their domestic league and Champions League qualifiers soon and they counter-attacked us well".

"In the second half, we played much better but the situation continued to be very hard".

Back from their travels in the Far East, and in front of an expectant home crowd, Bayern had the chance to draw a line under their inconsistencies on a rain-soaked night in Bavaria.

Despite two high profile teams battling it out with a trophy at stake, the final at the Allianz Arena proved that this was just a glorified friendly.

The Spanish giants have always been a consistent football team, and with Diego Simeone at the helm of things, the Argentine has always pressed for excellence.

Jurgen Klopp wasn't overly perturbed as Liverpool slipped to a penalty shoot-out defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Audi Cup decider.
