"He is the best player and we all have to face it" - Michael van Gerwen full of praise for Luke Humphries after German Darts Grand Prix final

Michael van Gerwen came up short in the final of the German Darts Grand Prix on Monday night. The 34-year-old Dutchman went down by a heavy 8-1 scoreline to Luke Humphries in the final.

Despite the heavy defeat, Van Gerwen was not too disappointed. "It's a good time for myself to [reach] the final," he reflected afterwards. "Of course there's a lot of negatives but also a lot of positives and my form I think has come from far - to reach the final I think is a big positive. I want to say thank you to the crowd, thanks for the organisation - I think it was a good tournament and I'm pleased."

"You need to perform really well if you want to beat Luke, we all know that," continued 'Mighty Mike'. "Early doors in the game I had a few chances but my scoring wasn't good enough and fair play to him."

"I think at this moment he is the best player and we all have to face it, we have to battle but he also knows this is not going to run forever. He's playing some cracking darts, I have to admit that."
