Liverpool history

The Reds, founded in 1892, have won the league title 19 times, one fewer than record holders Manchester United, but they are comfortably the most decorated club in British football in terms of European success.

Liverpool have been crowned European champions six times, their latest triumph coming in a glorious run in 2019 when they overturned a 3-0 defeat by Barcelona in the first leg of their semi-final with a 4-0 win at Anfield.

The Reds had lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the final in the previous season, but 12 months later a controversial early penalty by Mo Salah set them on the way to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham.

The seeds of Liverpool’s success were sown in the 1960s by Bill Shankly who won three league titles and the UEFA Cup in a 15-year spell between 1959-74 and his successor Bob Paisley continued the good work, winning the European Cup three times and the First Division on six occasions.

Joe Fagan took over when Paisley retired in 1983 and in his debut season won three trophies; the European Cup, First Division and the League Cup, although he retired at the end of the following season and was replaced by club legend Kenny Dalglish.

The Scot won the league three times, FA Cup twice and League Cup once in his six seasons with the club but his departure in 1991 sparked a lean time in the 90s which were dominated by Manchester United under Alex Ferguson.

Rafa Benitez brought back the good times with a remarkable Champions League triumph in 2005 when Liverpool overcame a 3-0 half-time deficit to beat AC Milan in a penalty shoot-out, but the Reds’ proper resurgence came with the appointment of Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp in October 2015.

The German has established the Reds as the second best top-flight team behind Manchester City, winning the Champions League in 2019, Premier League a year later and both domestic cup competitions last season.
