“All four bid farewell having played their part in Jürgen Klopp’s side lifting seven trophies in recent years, including the 2019 Champions League and the Reds’ first league title for 30 years with 99 points in 2019-20.

“There were also successes in the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, Carabao Cup, Emirates FA Cup and FA Community Shield, and the quartet’s contributions were saluted during an emotional send-off at Anfield in May.”
