John W Henry Jurgen Klopp TEAMtalk

Liverpool’s principal owner John W Henry has paid tribute to the team’s “magnificent achievement”.

Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a league title is over after they were confirmed as Premier League champions on Thursday night.

Second-placed Manchester City had to win at Chelsea to prolong the Reds’ wait for at least another week but fell to a 2-1 defeat on Thursday night.

It means Jurgen Klopp’s side have won the title – the club’s first since 1990 – with a record seven games to spare.

Liverpool’s remarkable league campaign has seen them win 28 of their 31 fixtures.

They can break City’s Premier League record of 100 points for a campaign if they go on to win five of their remaining seven matches.The Reds’ title success is the 19th in the club’s history, moving them one behind Manchester United’s English record.

 

 

Head of Fenway Sports Group, Henry tweeted: “This was a season for the ages and for the faithful of Liverpool Football Club.

“It has been an incredible year of magnificent achievement culminating tonight in capturing the Premier League title.

“This in addition to winning a European championship, a Super Cup and a world championship – the totality of this accomplishment has brought respite and joy to so many in a year filled with so much tragedy.

“LFC has made the beautiful game more beautiful than ever.”

Henry also paid tribute to the fans, adding: “It is said, ‘We are Liverpool’. You, the supporters are Liverpool in every sense and you continue to drive the club forward – a historic club making history once again.”

Boss Jurgen Klopp dedicated the triumph for the fans, but asked them to remain at home.

 

Klopp’s message to fans

 

 

 

Many took to the streets and travelled to Anfield, but Klopp urged them to be mindful of the current situation.
“It’s relief because of the three-month interruption (due to the coronavirus lockdown) and nobody knew how it would go on and then we don’t know 100 percent how we would come back,” said Klopp.
“The games are difficult in the Premier League, each game is different so I was really happy last night with the game (the win over Crystal Palace), it gave me 100 percent feeling that we will be fine.“But tonight I can only say (to the supporters), it’s for you, it’s for you out there. It’s incredible, I hope you stay at home or go in front of your house if you want but do no more and celebrate it.“It’s all here. We are all together in this moment and it’s a joy to do it for you, I can tell you.”
