Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "We are back on our perch. It's been a long time coming.

Sir Alex Ferguson Once Said Phil Jones Could Become Man Utd's Greatest Ever Player

"It's been a generation, 30 years. Yes we've had the Champions League, but for Liverpool it has always been about the championship. And we have not been able to get our hands on it. And it's been a burden to everybody.

"All our managers have had to carry it. And I think now, to Jurgen Klopp, the players, my utter congratulations because it has been hard. It has been the holy grail and we've done it tonight."

Thompson also believes the current Liverpool team could be the best side in Premier League history.

"There have been some really good teams, but not as good as this," he added.

"97 points last year, playing some wonderful football and didn't bring it home. There was a lot of people who were giggling and thinking 'you're not going to get that chance again, it's not going to come your way.'

"To go again and compete with this Manchester City is absolutely wonderful. If this team stays together, and I think they will, they can do it again next year. They'll be a hell of a team to beat next year."
