After a thrilling 5-3 EPL battle against Chelsea, Liverpool finally claimed the Premier League trophy on their last home game of the season in an empty Kop on Wednesday.
The club’s first English title for 30 years had been sealed almost a month ago with seven games remaining, following a three-month stoppage because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The last Liverpool manager that delivered the title, Kenny Dalglish, presented the medals and handed the trophy to Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, who raised it to the night sky as fireworks and confetti blasted across the air.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the fans missed out supposedly a momentous night at the Anfield. Maybe you can check our latest Football News update at Sports News menu.
“If you don’t see that we do it for you, I can’t help you,” Klopp said when asked for his message to the fans.
“You made us happy, we all should celebrate at home. Prepare for a party and when this virus has gone, we will have a party.”
Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore mentioned that the players and fans will “come together to celebrate” soon at the right time.
“It’s been an amazing season,” Henderson told former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher at pitchside.
“It’s been a journey, a process, and every single player has been part of it.”
Liverpool from last year missed out only by a point to Manchester City despite losing only one game.
They’ve also managed to bag the Champions League title last June, yet the English crown is what the whole community has been dying to attain for the last 30 years.
The manner in which Liverpool took the EPL title suggests it will not be a one-off.
“This won’t be the last one for this team,” former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness said.
“This club is geared to be a very successful football club, this is Liverpool back to where they were 30 or 40 years ago.”
“They will be challenging for this and the Champions League for the next decade.”
