The players and fans celebrated together at the full time whistle as, 14 years after the last time, Liverpool Football Club brought the Champions League trophy back home. Liverpool are once again the best team in Europe, and it’s only what these players deserve after such an exceptional season.

The emotional reaction of the team at full time makes you understand how much this means for all of them. In particular, Trent Alexander-Arnold, the only Scouser on the team, looks absolutely over the moon.

Jurgen Klopp makes a point of giving Divock Origi a huge Klopphug in recognition of his hugely important 86th minute goal that effectively won the game for the Reds.

This moment feels like a huge exhale of relief and joy from the team and fans alike that all of the hard work of the 2018-19 season gave us a trophy in the end. And not just any trophy: arguably the most important trophy in Europe. A chance at finally breaking their league drought will have to wait until next year, but for now it feels amazing to see this team crowned as Europe’s best.
