Wednesday night was a moment to cherish for every Liverpool player and fan across the world.

After a gap of 30 years, Liverpool finally lifted English football’s biggest prize in the night sky with fireworks galore, surrounded by a sea of red.

It was only fitting that Sir Kenny Dalglish, the last Liverpool manager before Jurgen Klopp to deliver the title in 1990, presented the medals to each player.

This was followed by captain Jordan Henderson hoisting the Premier League trophy in front of an empty Kop, but it’s safe to say that Kopites around the world were present at Anfield in spirit.

There were tears of joy on Merseyside and across the world, amid a bigger feeling of relief and happiness when a dream which was 30 years in the making was finally realized.

The players and the manager sang the song ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in unison with belief in their eyes and the sentiment was echoed by millions of Liverpool fans across the globe.

A celebration post-COVID is definitely on the cards, and truth be told, an empty Anfiled couldn’t dampen the charm of the feat as the feat itself is so massive.

A thrilled Jurgen Klopp after lifting the Premier League trophy said:

What can I say? If you don’t see that we do it for you I can’t help you, really.

Five years ago I asked you to change from doubters to believers. I said the minute before the press conference, I had no idea when they asked it that they would ask it.

But you did it. You made us happen, really. Thank you very much. We all together should celebrate. At home, safe, drink what you want.

“But you have to prepare for a party. I don’t know when this bull**** virus will be gone, but then we will have a party, all together. Make sure you are ready then. Thank you very much.

Life had come full circle with Chelsea

In the 2013-14 season, Liverpool were on their way to winning the elusive Premier League title, until a slip from the legendary Steven Gerrard helped Chelsea to score, with the Blues eventually winning the contest 2-0.

As a result, Liverpool lost vital momentum and drew 3-3 against Crystal Palace in their next game, despite being 3-0 up, and Manchester City eventually became the champions.

The mistake haunted Steven Gerrard and everyone associated with Liverpool for six years until  Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 to hand the Reds the Premier League title four weeks back.

Life had come full circle, and it was only apt for Liverpool to beat Chelsea 5-3 in the game that preluded the medal ceremony at Anfield.

Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all got their name on the scoring sheet for the Merseyside club before a jubilant trophy celebration.

Onwards and Upwards for Liverpool from here

When a mission is accomplished with determination and dedication that is second to none, there is a mammoth boost in confidence.

One can only go onwards and upwards from there and so is the case for Liverpool.

The Premier League triumph is just the start of massive things to come and with a team par excellence and a manager worthy of every praise, Kopites around the world can hope for trophies galore in times ahead.

To conclude, as a Liverpool fan, I have a message for the players, with such performances, you have won our hearts and unending loyalty.

There’s a short note for fellow Liverpool fans too, support the club like you have always done and truly, ‘You’ll never walk alone’.
