30 years of waiting have come to an end: Liverpool FC players raised the long-awaited championship trophy to the sky on Wednesday evening. For Jürgen Klopp it is the third big success with the Reds.
Dhe FC Liverpool and master maker Jürgen Klopp finally have the much-awaited trophy. Late on Wednesday evening, captain Jordan Henderson lifted the silver cup on the empty fan stand The Kop. In the rain of confetti and under fireworks, the Reds pros and trainer Klopp were happy about the first English football championship in 30 years after winning the Champions League. The 5-3 spectacle previously against Chelsea at Anfield Road at home quickly became a minor matter.
The only downside on this historic day for the club was the lack of fans. “We held it up for you. You made sure that we can experience this dream, “said international Henderson in a video message and added caution that the coronavirus pandemic would not allow him to get around the stadium:” Support us from home or in safe environment. “
Even though Liverpool FC showed offensive power again against Chelsea, the focus was on the 19th championship and the first-time win of the Premier League, the successor league of the First Division, founded in 1992. The traditional club has always been close in the past few years, but in the end clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea held up the trophy. With an outstanding season and currently 96 points, Klopp and his players gave the competition no chance this time.
Coach Klopp also proudly picked up the trophy. After taking over in October 2015, he built one of the best teams in Europe. The offensive stars around Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino as well as Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker have made a leap and are among the world’s best professionals. After winning the premier class last year and winning the Club World Cup in December 2019, the next Klopp coup has now been achieved.
“He embodies everything Liverpool stands for,” enthused club legend Kenny Dalglish of the former Bundesliga coach. Liverpool had last won the English championship under the then coach Dalglish.
