Liverpool Celebrate League Cup And FA Cup Success With Open-Top Bus Parade

Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side celebrated this season's FA Cup and League Cup wins with an open-top bus parade through the city, less than 24 hours after their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

The Premier League runners up, who finished one point behind champions Manchester City after a dramatic final day, have played 63 matches in total during the 2021/22 campaign, picking up just four defeats all season.

One of those losses came at the Stade de France on Saturday night, when a 59th minute winner from Vinicius Jr sealed a 1-0 win for Los Blancos. But despite the heartache of last night's loss, Liverpool wanted to celebrate two trophy wins.

Starting on Queens Drive in the Allerton area before heading north, Liverpool players and staff passed The Jolly Miller pub and towards West Derby Road.

Both the men's and women's team buses eventually make their way to the City centre, where thousands of fans welcomed the likes of Jurgen Klopp, who was seen with a beer in one hand and the League Cup in the other.

Here's some more footage and pictures from the event in Liverpool.

Klopp, who is confident his team will bounce back in the coming weeks and months, encouraged fans to support the team at Sunday's parade following their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

"The difference between 2018 and now is that I see us coming again," he said. "In 2018, I wished it but I couldn't know.

"But these boys are really competitive. They have an incredible attitude. It's a fantastic group and we will go again, definitely.

"And tomorrow, we will celebrate the season. It's good that we don't have to do that now immediately. But after a night's sleep and maybe another speech from me, the boys will realize how special what they did was.

"Even if nobody on this planet would understand that we have a parade tomorrow, we still will do it."

Klopp added: "I really hope that everybody who has the chance to get to Liverpool is there tomorrow and celebrates together with us a fantastic season that we all had together.

"It didn't end like we wanted but the club is in a good moment. We will go again."
