Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish was decreased to tears after Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for one more title.
The Scot gained three league titles as Kop boss and was emotional after Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea topped the Reds champions.
Dalglish informed BT Sport: “I think back then if you’d have said it would take 30 years you’d have been arrested and sectioned, but sometimes things happen.
“The final two years since (supervisor) Jurgen (Klopp) got here in, it has been very, very optimistic all the way in which. He’s been implausible and he epitomises all the things that Liverpool stands for. He respects everybody on the membership.
“It’s not just a one-off as last year they came within a point of it and won the European Cup and a World Club Cup too, so onwards and upwards and I think there will be plenty more days to look forward to as long as Jurgen is there.
“It takes a implausible dressing room to win issues. You do not win something with division, it takes solidarity, and Liverpool from high to backside have been collectively.”
Dalglish continued: “It takes onerous work to dominate the English league once you’ve obtained sides of the standard of Manchester City, however Manchester City’s issues have at all times been throughout the again 4, I feel, and so they have missed Vincent Kompany and I do not assume they’ve changed him.
“They need a replacement for him but they have some fantastic players and they are going to lose another of their best ones in (David) Silva.
“But there are quite a lot of nice groups – Chelsea and Manchester United are kicking on for subsequent yr – so I do not assume you may dominate simply.
“There’s no arrogance or big heads in the dressing room, no Jack The Lad who thinks they are bigger or better than anyone else.
“I remember Bob Paisley said once after the European Cup win in Rome that he didn’t want a drink, he wanted to get drunk on the occasion and the atmosphere and remember it, but (holding up a glass of Champagne) I never took your advice, I’m sorry.”
Meanwhile, former Liverpool Jamie Carragher popped open the champagne after watching his outdated facet wrap up the title.
Former Reds supervisor Rafa Benitez tweeted: “Congratulations to @LFC, after 30 years, the dream comes true! Very happy for all the Reds! You’ll never walk alone #YNWA #Champions #Liverpool.”
Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush posted on Twitter: “The finest feeling!! @LFC see u guys tomorrow.”
Sami Hyypia, who gained a FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup treble with Liverpool in 2001, informed BT Sport: “I think commitment is one thing Jurgen Klopp has created, everyone needs to be really committed to play that way and when I see a game live I can see the commitment from the stands. They players also enjoy playing together.
“You want leaders and Virgil is one within the crew. Before he got here I did not assume there have been sufficient leaders within the crew and he took a few of that burden from the likes of Jordan and he makes these round him play higher as properly.
“I think the defences have been key. (Manchester City’s Aymeric) Laporte has been injured a long time and he is a very important player for City and they have struggled a little bit defensively. I would also say that perhaps Guardiola’s tactics are a little more risky and City are more vulnerable to counter attacks than we are at the moment.”
