What did it take for Liverpool to win the Premier League?! They are giants of English football but it took Liverpool 30 long years to finally win the Premier League title.
How did it happen? As Chelsea beat Manchester City in the Premier League last week, Liverpool was handed their 1st league title since 1990. The Reds as they are fondly called, dominated the proceedings this season and won 28 out of the 31 matches and amassed 86 points. 86 points were good enough for them to win the trophy which many Liverpool fans considered bigger than even the Champions League crown.
Why is that? It took Jurgen Klopp’s side 30 years, which translates into 1,149 Premier League games since 1990 when they grabbed their last title. In this duration, Liverpool tried as many as 7 managers, 239 footballers, and a whopping 1.47 billion pounds trying to win this title. They came close to wining it a gut-wrenching 5 times, but fell short each time. They have performed pretty well in other competitions apart from the Premier League, winning 17 titles over the last 30 years including 2 Champions League trophies. This Premier League title is their fourth major trophy in the last 12 months, following the UEFA Super Cup, Champions League and FIFA World Cup wins.
What happens next? As Sadio Mane said, “We won’t stop here’ – we look forward to the rest of their journey!
