Jurgen Klopp reveals Liverpool parade was also for the Premier League trophy won in 2020
Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp did not get to have an open-top bus parade after they won the Premier League title back in the 2019/2020 season.
Covid-19 restrictions meant that the club had to call off any plans they may have made for a parade throughout the city. That may feel unfair now but it made sense during that time, with the pandemic wreaking havoc on a global scale.
The Reds had one of the grandest parades seen in football when they won the UEFA Champions League in 2019 after beating Tottenham Hotspur in the final. And one would have expected it to be even better after they ended their three-decade-long league title drought.
The Reds won nothing last season but with two domestic trophies this campaign, they finally had the chance to celebrate with their fans. Despite the grim feeling after the UEFA Champions League loss against Real Madrid yesterday, our fans made the parade an event to remember.
All the sorrow of Saturday night did not seem to matter as Klopp, along with the players, staff members, and the fans seemed in good spirits. Some may have questioned the decision to hold the parade right after the UCL final, considering how underwhelming could be if the Reds lose to Real Madrid, but that was not the case despite the worst-case scenario coming true.
A grand occasion
And while giving an interview during the parade itself, the German manager concluded his thoughts by mentioning how this celebration includes their league title success from two years back.
“It’s absolutely outstanding. This is the best club in the world, I don’t care what other people think… We celebrate life, we celebrate the season, we celebrate our two cup wins and we celebrate the championship of 2020.”
Klopp is unshakeable in his spirits and his belief. This is the same manager that bounced back from a heartbreaking UCL final defeat in 2018 to land the same championship next year. And he is the same man that led this team to the league title the very next season after the Reds lost the PL to Manchester City by a solitary point.

He deserves to celebrate this achievement, along with our players, whichever way he wants to. Only Manchester City have won a trophy apart from LFC this season when it comes to Premier League clubs, and it is outrageous to think that we won’t want to celebrate it!
