The defeat of Manchester City against Chelsea (2-1) therefore offers the title of champion of England in Liverpool. An expectation that lasted thirty years. Last manager to have been crowned champion with the Reds, Sir Kenny Dalglish did not hide his emotion by evoking the title gleaned by the men of Jürgen Klopp.
“I think at the time, if you said it would take 30 years, you would have been arrested and severed, but sometimes things happen. The last two years since Jurgen’s arrival have been very, very positive throughout the process. He was fantastic and he epitomizes everything Liverpool stands for. He respects everyone at the club. It’s not just a one-time event, because last year the club went on the verge of winning the European Cup and the Club World Cup, and I think there will still be a lot of beautiful days to come as long as Jurgen is there. You don’t win anything with the division, you need solidarity, and Liverpool have been together from start to finish, ” commented Dalglish on Sky Sports .
