Liverpool’s victory parade

It didn’t take long for Jurgen Klopp and the Champions League-winning Reds to return home from Madrid and begin their celebrations immediately. The victory parade was scheduled for Sunday morning — 11 a.m. local time — as the players took to the buses to share their sixth European Cup/Champions League title with the faithful fans.

Griezmann likes Liverpool?

We all know what it means when one player likes/comments on another player’s social media right? Of course, it means they are going to be teammates in the near future.

In which case, Liverpool fans have more to get excited about than winning the Champions League as they’re about to land Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. Thanks to Roberto Firmino it seems.

Mourinho leaves Ronaldo out of his UCL best XI

Jose Mourinho has picked his Champions League team of the season and while  chock full of talent, the former Manchester United boss left some big names on the bench.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mourinho’s selection was Liverpool-heavy, with no less than six of the team being plucked from Jurgen Klopp’s victorious side.

Despite settling upon an incredibly strong XI there was one notable exception, with Mourinho unable to find room for fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo despite the Juventus star once again finding himself among the tournament’s top goalscorers.

Mourinho’s Champions League team of the season is as follows (via Record):

Alisson (Liverpool), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Matthijs de Ligt (Ajax) and Andrew Robertson (Liverpool) make up the back five.

Donny van de Beek (Ajax) and Frenkie de Jong (Ajax) are partnered in central midfield, with Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) pulling strings in front of them.

Up top, Mourinho plumped for an explosive attacking three of Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Sadio Mane (Liverpool) and Lionel Messi (Barcelona), who scored 12 goals in the competition despite Barcelona crashing out in the semis.
