Jurgen Klopp made phone call to his family the moment Liverpool were crowned champions

Klopp shared an emotional moment with his family

Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions on Thursday night and they didn't even need to kick a ball. 

Jurgen Klopp's side watched on together as Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 to officially seal the fate of the title. 

In reality, of course, we all knew the race was over a long time ago. 

But to finally get over the line is huge, especially after waiting 30 years for their first-ever Premier League title. 

Liverpool celebrated their incredible achievement at the Formby Hall hotel and partied long into the night.

It probably wasn't exactly how they'd hoped to mark the moment - living in their own little bubble due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic - but it was still special.

Details are still emerging from the celebration, with camera phone footage being shared by players across social media today, while more professional photos from the club are also being posted.

Manager Klopp has also been doing a number of interviews in the past 24 hours and on Friday, revealed what he did the moment Liverpool were crowned champions.

"I called my family 10 seconds before the final whistle. I told them I love them, they told me they love me," he said.

"We cannot be together and that is not nice but I put the phone on the table and said 'Leave it on because in 4 to 5 seconds something special can happen'".

Brilliant. What a moment that would have been for the German and his family. No wonder he was so emotional while being interviewed on Sky in the moments that followed Man City's defeat. 

After Klopp and a number of his players finished their media duties, the festivities continued and according to The Mirror, players and staff partied into the early hours.

Beer and champagne was on offer, but most players apparently decided to drink Coca Cola while stuffing themselves with fruit, granola, ice cream, dumplings and BBQ food.

It may not have happened in ideal circumstances due to COVID-19, but it's a night Klopp and his players will never forget as they were crowned Premier League champions.
