The progress Liverpool have made under Jurgen Klopp is just incredible.

When he took over in 2015, the Merseyside club were in a dire state.

They weren't even a Champions League team and possessed an underwhelming squad of players.

However, he has overseen great strides every season.

And, this campaign, he finally won his first major trophy at the club.

The Reds put in a quite phenomenal Premier League campaign, where they lost just once and accumulated 97 points.

Unfortunately for them, that tally was one shy of the mark set by Manchester City.

But Liverpool made up for that heartache by winning the Champions League on Saturday night.

Klopp's side were able to overcome Tottenham with goals either side of half-time by Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.
