Although it was nearly eight weeks ago, the Reds Champions League win in Madrid never fails to provide top-quality memories and belated intrigue.
As Chris Bascombe reminds us in The Telegraph, there was a friendly dispute as Jordan Henderson stepped up to the podium to prove his doubters wrong and lift aloft the European Cup.
Hendo – being the kind of person he is – decided he wanted to share the honour of thrusting the cup into the night sky of Madrid, requesting that James Milner and Jürgen Klopp join him.
But Milner brusquely, and hilariously, replied: “If anyone other than you lifts up that trophy they are getting f—— wrestled to the ground.”
Milner’s influence on the dressing room and on the pitch cannot be overstated, but it was clear that, despite his leadership, it would be Henderson to do the honours.
The rest was history. An oft-maligned player by some, the 29-year-old’s trophy lift became not just an iconic moment for the club, but a career-defining one for the victorious Reds captain.
