Triumphant Reds arrive back in Liverpool ahead of Champions League parade

Liverpool’s squad have touched down at John Lennon airport ahead of their parade through the city with the Champions League trophy.

The Reds flew back from Madrid on Saturday morning with the European Cup trophy in tow—and proudly shown off by the triumphant manager Jurgen Klopp, and captain Jordan Henderson, after arriving back on Merseyside.

It’s six European triumphs now for the Reds, who erased the disappointment of Kyiv a year ago with a resilient and, at either extremity of the 90 minutes, clinical performance against Tottenham.

The trip home saw several epic photos of the squad and the management posted across social media, as Liverpool revelled in being European champions once more.

The memories of the night will last a lifetime for the players, as well as the fans.

And there are further scenes of celebration ahead, as tens of thousands of Liverpool fans who couldn’t be in Madrid will gather to welcome home their heroes.
