750,000 Fans Turn Out For Liverpool's Champions League Parade

750,000 people turned out to welcome home Champions League winners Liverpool in unbelievable scenes.

Hundreds of thousands of fans flooded the streets of the city for Liverpool's parade on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp and his team arrived back in Liverpool on Sunday following their Champions League final victory in Madrid on Saturday.

The squad were met by a sea of reds as they traveled on an open-top bus. It began at Allerton Maze and ended near the waterfront as fans climbed anything to gain a vantage point. We're talking lampposts and traffic lights.

Fireworks were lit with some letting off red smoke bombs to add to the incredible atmosphere.

A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council said around half-a-million supporters attended the parade, though major Joe Anderson claimed the figure was closer to 750,000.

To put that in perspective, Liverpool's population is 552,000. Amazing support.

Champions League final 'Man of the Match' Virgil van Dijk paid tribute to Liverpool fans on social media: "Unbelievable, thank you Reds," he wrote accompanied with a jaw-dropping picture of the parade.


The commanding Dutchman can do the lot. He even tried his hand at presenting, and he smashed it. Shock.

What's more, no opposition player has completed a dribble past Van Dijk in any of his last 64 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool.

Liverpool have now six European titles to their name following their 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the second minute before super-sub Divock Origi doubled his side's advantage in the 86th minute.
