Cheap Steven Gerrard Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

Liverpool picked up their sixth European Cup by beating Tottenham 2-0 in the Spanish capital on Saturday night.

It was their first Champions League success since Gerrard led the Anfield outfit to victory in 2005.

The former midfielder is now manager at Rangers having left Liverpool in 2015.But having seen Jordan Henderson captain his former club to European glory, Gerrard couldn’t help but feel proud.“When Jordan Henderson lifted the Champions League trophy above his head, my first feeling was one of pride,” Gerrard wrote for The Times.“Proud that Liverpool were back at the top of European football and especially proud of Jordan, because I know how hard he works.

“I know the sacrifices he has made, the pressure and scrutiny that he has been under.

“If I had to name someone I regard as the ultimate professional, then Jordan would come right at the top of the list. He is immaculate in the way he lives his life.“Some people don’t see the stuff behind the scenes, the gym work, the way he eats, but he is an incredible role model.

“He is selfless. He puts himself at the back of the queue because he looks after everyone else first.

“He puts Jordan Henderson last.”

Henderson lifted the cup alone in front of his team-mates on Saturday night.

But the 28-year-old wanted manager Jurgen Klopp to join him.”I asked him to lift the trophy with us but he said that was my job,” Henderson added.

“We all love him of course. He’s got a special relationship with the players.

“If you ask the players that he’s worked with previous they’ll say the same. He’s a special manager.

“Us as players are just delighted to be playing under him and learning from him and hopefully we can continue to do that and go again next season.”

Cheap Trent Alexander-Arnold Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

In a hurricane of emotion and adrenaline at Anfield, the electrifying expectation of Liverpool’s home support spiraling around the stadium, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s mind was still.

“Don’t take your eye off the ball, don’t miss a thing.”

Against all logic, Liverpool had erased their 3-0 deficit against Barcelona in the Champions League. With the aggregate score poised at 3-3 in the semifinal, second leg, the right-back won a corner on 78 minutes. He looked up, placed the ball and shaped to take it before Xherdan Shaqiri requested responsibility for the set-piece. Alexander-Arnold obliged and took slow strides away, before noticing Ernesto Valverde’s men had briefly switched off. He swiveled toward the ball sharply, delivering an inch-perfect low cross that Divock Origi converted to give Liverpool another crack at continental glory.

Alexander-Arnold, who turned 20 in October and is primed to become the youngest starter in consecutive European Cup finals — he was in the XI that lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev last year and is currently preparing to meet Tottenham in Madrid on Saturday — strolls through Liverpool’s Waterfront as he recounts the most iconic moment in his career to date. Manager Jürgen Klopp described the improvisation as “genius” and on the stretch that showcases the city’s majestic stone-clad Three Graces — the Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Bulding and the Port of Liverpool — Alexander-Arnold reveals it was all down to conditioning.

“I always try to be one step ahead of my opponents, because that’s how you get the best out of yourself and the better of them,” he tells ESPN. “I’ve thought about that and worked on it since I started at the Academy, but it’s extremely difficult to show it regularly at an elite level. You’re competing against top sides, who are very well prepared and the chance to catch them off guard is limited.

“In that split second against Barca, I noticed the opportunity and I used it.”While “The Trent” — a move born out of game intelligence and now forever stitched into the fabric of famous Anfield nights — has been transported to parks, streets and playgrounds across the globe, Alexander-Arnold simply files it under “job done.”

“I haven’t thought about it beyond what it meant for the game itself and the club,” he says. “It’s hard to sit back and reflect on individual moments or the big wins you’ve been involved in. For us, it’s just another good performance, a good game — nothing more, nothing less, because it’s a results business. Our thinking is ‘That one is done, it’s gone, we need to focus on the next challenge,’ because there is always another match or objective around the corner.

“Whether it was a historic goal or not, the main thing was for us to show how good of a team we are, what we believe we’re capable of and to set a marker down in Europe to ensure every opponent has great respect for Liverpool.”

In January, when Alexander-Arnold signed a new five-year contract with the club, Klopp described him as “one of the most relentless professionals I have met when it comes to focusing on getting better each and every day” and had a message for supporters. “I have noticed he doesn’t have a song from the fans yet, so maybe that is something they can work on. Wow, does he deserve one!

“As a player for Liverpool, he is the embodiment of the sentiment ‘we’re never gonna stop.'”

Cheap Sheyi Ojo Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

DON COWIE reckons Sheyi Ojo would flourish at Rangers, just like his Liverpool team-mate Ryan Kent.

The Light Blues are interested on bringing the 21-year-old to Ibrox this summer on a loan deal.And Ross County star Cowie reckons the winger would move from strength to strength under Steven Gerrard.

The 36-year-old played alongside Ojo during at Wigan in 2015 and could see the youngster’s talent shining through.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Cowie said: “I played with Sheyi four years ago at Wigan and he was still very young at the time – just 18 – but a very talented player.

“It was tough at the time because Wigan were involved in a relegation battle so it wasn’t an easy time to come in and play but you could see in training and glimpses in games that he had loads of ability.”On a day to day basis you could see he was a real talent and despite us being in a perilous position at the time, and playing in pressure games, he always wanted to get on the ball because that’s what he’s all about.

“He’s very tricky, strong and fast. He won’t hide, he wants the ball all the time.

“But it was tough because there wasn’t an awful lot of football being played in our games at that time so it wasn’t ideal for him.

“When you’re a Liverpool player at that age and going on loan to a Championship team, it proves there’s an awful lot of ability there.

“And knowing the circumstances we were in at the time, for Wigan to be confident to take a young player like that in suggests they had done their homework and had every faith in his ability.

“It must be quite daunting for a teenager going into a new dressing room but he took it in his stride and if he goes to Rangers I hope it works out for him.

“He’s a winger who is very direct and wants to be on the ball and get at full backs.”He’s similar to Ryan Kent who we’d all agree took a bit of time to settle in but as the season went on he went from strength to strength.

“I’m sure Sheyi would be the same because it’s different and you need to get used to that pressure of playing for one half of the Old Firm.

“I would be intrigued to see how he handles Scottish football because you have to remember how young he was when I played with him – you can mature a lot mentally and physically in that period of time.

“But purely going on the basis of what I seen and the ability he’s got then if he has improved since then he could be a very good player for Rangers.”

Cheap Ryan Kent Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

Don Cowie saw Sheyi Ojo’s talent shine through during training at Wigan only to see it suffocated on a matchday as the club fought a Championship relegation battle.

But the former Scotland midfielder reckons the Liverpool winger could flourish at Rangers as Steven Gerrard looks to make him his latest Anfield loan signing.

Cowie played with Ojo when he was sent on the first of his four loan moves away from the Reds after moving to Merseyside from MK Dons when he was a schoolboy.

Chelsea were even reportedly willing to pay £2million for the then 14-year-old but Liverpool won the race for the signature of a player most recently on loan at French side Reims.

Cowie spotted glimpses of his potential when they were at the Latics but it wasn’t enough to stop Wigan dropping into League One.And the Ross County midfielder says the style of football needed in a relegation scrap wasn’t conducive to a player of his style.

But Cowie believes Ojo could shine at Ibrox in the same way as Ryan Kent and the Staggies star could be up against his old team-mate after winning the Championship with 
the Highlanders.

The 36-year-old said: “I played with Sheyi four years ago at Wigan and he was still very young at the time – just 18 – but a very talented player.

“It was tough at the time because Wigan were involved in a relegation battle so it wasn’t an easy time to come in and play but you could see in training and glimpses in games that he had loads of ability.

“On a day to day basis you could see he was a real talent and despite us being in a perilous position at the time, and playing in pressure games, he always wanted to get on the ball because that’s what he’s all about.“He’s very tricky, strong and fast. He won’t hide, he wants the ball all the time. But it was tough because there wasn’t an awful lot of football being played in our games at that time so it wasn’t ideal for him. When you’re a Liverpool player at that age and going on loan to a Championship team, it proves there’s an awful lot of ability there.

“And knowing the circumstances we were in at the time, for Wigan to be confident to take a young player like that in suggests they had done their homework and had every faith in his ability.

“It must be quite daunting for a teenager going into a new dressing room but he took it in his stride and if he goes to Rangers I hope it works out for him.

“But purely going on the basis of what I seen and the ability he’s got then if he has improved since then he could be a very good player for Rangers.”

Cowie expected Ojo to force his way into the Liverpool first team when he left Wigan four years ago but instead he was sent out on loan again to Wolves and Fulham before his spell in Ligue 1 this season.

He has featured for the first team on a handful of occasions and Jurgen Klopp is set to reward him with a long term deal before rubber stamping his move to Ibrox.

And Cowie said: “The fact Liverpool have kept him then speaks volumes for how highly they rate him and it suggests they see a real player.

“This would be the next step in his ladder for progression. I didn’t encounter him again after he left Wigan as I returned to Scotland shortly after that but it would be funny if I came up against him next season.“I thought he might have gone back and broke through at Anfield but when you’re trying to break into a Liverpool team with the players they’ve got then it can’t be easy.

“He was a confident lad and a great boy to have around the dressing room. I spoke a lot to him and tried to find out a bit about him because of the Liverpool connection and I was desperate for him to go back and do well.

“It hasn’t quite worked out, he’s had quite a few loan spells since then, but if he is a player Rangers sign then he’s definitely one who would get fans off their seats.”

Cheap Sadio Mane Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

Real Madrid boss Zidane has been backed to sign Liverpool duo Mane and Salah in recent times.

Salah has been sensationally linked with a move away from Anfield just days after his goal set the Reds on their way to winning the Champions League title.

The Egypt international is reportedly keen to leave the Merseyside giants behind after an argument with Jurgen Klopp earlier this season.Zidane is now back in charge of Los Blancos and eager to steer the side to silverware going forward.

Salah and Mane now appear to be on the radar of the Spanish club but Catalan newspaper Sport say Zidane only wants one player.

And that star is Mane.

Regarding Salah, the Liverpool star has found himself top of Real president Florentino Perez’s shopping list.

Perez is already close to landing one Galactico in the form of Eden Hazard from Chelsea.But the prospect of luring Salah to the Bernabeu appeals.

However, Sport say Zidane would rather sign Mane instead.

The Real Madrid boss feels a deal for Salah would upset a locker room who saw Sergio Ramos vilified for crocking the Egyptian last year.

The Spain international was labelled an ‘enemy of Islam’ after last year’s Champions League final.

And Zidane would prefer to go for Mane instead.However, speaking before the Champions League final win over Tottenham, he insisted he was happy at Liverpool.

“This is always part of football so we have to deal with it but for me the most important thing is Liverpool and I’m happy here,” he said.

“I’m preparing for one of the biggest games for the club and the fans and the players as well, so let’s focus on this one first and win it.

“It’s always a pleasure that this kind of team wants you but don’t forget Liverpool. We beat big teams.”
