They’ve finally done it!
At the fourth time of asking, Liverpool have at last won a trophy under Jurgen Klopp, a man who has so often been labelled as a ‘bottler’ due to his inability to get his side over the finishing line.
Now, however, the German can call himself a European champion.
Klopp’s never-say-die attitude and his players’ admirable spirit helped them record a professional 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid, and secured a sixth major European Cup in the process.

For many of the Liverpool players, this piece of silverware is the first in their careers; players such as Roberto Firmino and Andy Robertson had never won anything previously.
As a result, the relief was quite obviously palpable – Virgil van Dijk even fell to the floor in disbelief after Divock Origi netted the winner.
Their emotions must’ve gone into overdrive, and thousands of Liverpool supporters took to the streets to welcome their heroes home.
Let’s take a look at the best images from the Reds’ trophy parade…
Liverpool’s No.13 Alisson Becker holds the trophy aloft, a piece of silverware that he deserved more than anyone after his exquisite performance in the final against Tottenham. A solid glovesman.
This looks extremely dangerous, and we would not recommend going to these extremes to see the parade. The players are on a bus anyway, so why is he so high up?! (Nice mankini though)
The man who netted two goals in the semi-final against Barcelona, and another to secure the win in the final against Tottenham, stands front and centre with the trophy.
Dangerously, but less so than the fan who is stood at the top of a ladder on some scaffolding, some fans clamber over the street signs of Liverpool to get a better view of their heroes.
Liverpool forward Firmino takes the colours of the club and puts them on his head as he gets the celebrations underway – nice glasses too, Bobby.
