It has been a long wait for Reds fans, who have not been champions of England since 1990 when Kenny Dalglish was their manager - the same year that Margaret Thatcher was deposed as leader of the Conservative Party and prime minister.

On Friday, 26 June, Liverpool goalkeeping legend Bruce Grobbelaar - who played 440 games for the Anfield club - compared manager Jurgen Klopp to the great Bill Shankly.

Grobbelaar told the BBC: "Klopp is one of those managers who will go down in history. I've likened him to a Shankly reincarnation in a German body.”
