Former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to the Reds' Champions League triumph five years ago.

The Reds lifted the European Cup for the sixth time thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on June 1, 2019. Mohamed Salah scored an early penalty before Divock Origi initiated the celebrations with a game-winning strike late in the second half.

The 2019 Champions League triumph would prove to be the beginning of a golden era for Klopp at Liverpool, who won a further seven trophies before stepping down from his position at Anfield last month.

Posting to Instagram on the fifth anniversary of Liverpool's win - which added to the club's previous triumphs in 1977, 1978, 1981, 1984 and 2005 - Klopp shared a series of snaps from the post-match celebrations in Madrid and the bus parade in Liverpool the following day. The caption read: "On this day 5 years ago," alongside a heart emoji - showing Klopp's love for his former club and that special night.

Liverpool also reached the 2018 and 2022 finals during Klopp's reign but were defeated by record-winners Real Madrid on both occasions. However, the Reds will return to the new competition next season after a season in the Europa League.

Madrid, however, have another chance to lift the trophy at Wembley on Saturday night when they face Borussia Dortmund, with Klopp expected to be at the game.
