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.
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.
