Liverpool's players and staff celebrated their 2019 UEFA Champions League victory on Sunday by parading the European Cup through the streets of the city.

The Reds beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Saturday to end a fine season on a high by lifting the European Cup for the sixth time in their history.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi were enough to see off Spurs, as Liverpool made up for the disappointment of just missing out on the Premier League title by being crowned champions of Europe.

Reporter Jenny Kirkham showed the team preparing to meet their fans:

Liverpool's Champions League win rewards the Reds for an impressive season and means only AC Milan and Real Madrid have lifted the European Cup more times than the Merseysiders.

The trophy will provide the club with great satisfaction after their domestic disappointments, but there is no doubt next season the focus will be on bringing the Premier League title to Anfield and ending the club's long wait to be crowned champions of England.
