Klopp and Liverpool players happy with local parade reaction


Thousands of Liverpool fans have lined the streets of the city to welcome home the side and celebrate their double trophy-winning season.

The Reds won the FA and League Cups earlier in the season, but took part in a parade a day after losing the Champions League final in Paris.

The parade, which started at 16:00 BST, followed a nine-mile route past many of the city's landmarks and finished in the city centre.

Reacting to the turn-out, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp told LFC TV he was "proud of these players but I am proud of these people".

"Lose the Champions League final the night before and the people arrive here in the mood they are.

"It is absolutely outstanding. This is the best club in the world. I don't care what people think."

He added that he had "hoped we would find something like this, something incredible".

"Yes, we lost the last two trophies but these people don't forget.

"They know exactly what shift the boys put in. It is such a boost for everything that will come."

Speaking to LFC TV, defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said it had been "hard to gauge how this was going to go [but] it's been outstanding", while club captain Jordan Henderson added the "least we can do is say thank you to the fans for what they have given to us this season".

"We weren't sure what it would be like," he said.

"We were all a bit flat. But this is what it is all about.

"This is why you do it and who you do it for."
