We all saw it coming for months, but yesterday it was finally the day for Liverpool. For the first time in 30 years, Liverpool Fc is crowned Premier League champions. It’s the first time the Reds win the league in the Premier League era. On Wednesday Liverpool won with 4-0 against Burnley. Increasing the gap with Manchester City to 23 points. Manchester City needed to win against Chelsea to keep Liverpool from winning the trophy this week. A handball by Fernandinho at 1-1 caused them the match. The Brazilian got sent off and Chelsea got a penalty. Willian netted the penalty and crushed the last hope for Man City.
Liverpool FC Premier League Champions
It has been a hard time for Liverpool fans. They hate to wait 30 years to win another title. The fact that this title comes during the Covid-19 pandemic, makes it a bit sour. Liverpool fans deserve a big parade and parties for a week, but this isn’t possible at the moment. Nevertheless it will be a very special feeling for Liverpool fans that they are Champions of the Premier League. I remember I once had to wait 6 years to see my club(Ajax) win a title. The feeling I had when we’ve won it again was indescribable. I can only imagine how Liverpool Fc fans must feel today. To all the Reds I would like to say: Congratulations and enjoy it as long as possible!
The prove is there that Jurgen Klopp is a world class manager. He has been the only manager in the last 11 years who managed to keep Bayern Munich from a title. He won the trophy twice with Borussia Dortmund. Ever since he arrived at Liverpool Fc, the club has improved year after year. He lost a Europa League final, lost Champions League final and missed out on the title on 2 point. The year after losing the Champions League final, he won the final with Liverpool. The year after finishing second behind Man City, he won the Premier League. It’s a big achievement to win the Premier League over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
