Liverpool FC was originally founded in 1892 following a dispute between the Everton committee and John Houlding, the owner of the land at Anfield. Subsequently, Everton moved to Goodison Park and Liverpool made Anfield their home. The club’s official anthem is ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and Anfield’s rendition of the anthem on a weekly basis lays the seeds for one of the best stadium atmospheres across the globe.
Fondly referred to as the ‘Reds’, the club has garnered a plethora of trophies over the years with their triumph in the Lancashire League on their debut setting the ball rolling. In the years 1922 and 1923, Liverpool won consecutive league championships. Though a slightly barren period followed, they notched their fifth First Division title in 1946-47.
However, the golden period for the club came under the tutelage of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley as the duo led the club to 11 league titles and 7 European trophies. Since then, Liverpool have added to their tally and at present, boast of 18 top-flight titles, 5 European Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 3 UEFA Super Cups, 7 FA Cups, a record 8 League Cups and 15 FA Community Shields.
Some of the club’s famous past players include Ian Callaghan, Ian Rush, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard, Kenny Dalglish, Luis Suarez, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres.
A few of their current superstars are Mohammed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. Liverpool is currently managed by Jurgen Klopp, who many consider as one of the premier managers in the world.
