Liverpool named the BBC Team of the Year for 2020

Liverpool have been named the 2020 Team of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards.

The award caps off a year in which the club became Premier League champions for the first time. The Reds broke their club record by amassing 99 points across a full league campaign.

However, it was not the only trophy that the club lifted during the 2019/20 season. The club lifted the UEFA Super Cup in August before winning the Club World Cup in December.

Impressively, during the whole campaign, the club set record after record. They broke the record for earliest victory with seven games left to go after Man City lost to Chelsea. Also, at one stage Liverpool had a lead of 25 points a record gap in English league history.

Anfield was a fortress for the Reds during the season as they went unbeaten at home and broke the record for most consecutive wins at home. The Reds managed 24 consecutive wins over two seasons (18/19,19/20)

“It’s a mix of talent, character, desire and plus the power of the club, which is really a big one. That all comes together so we could become champion and it was a great moment, to be honest.”

Also that evening the club would not just take home the Team of the Year award. Manager Jurgen Klopp won Coach of the Year, whilst Jordan Henderson was voted second in the Sports Personality of the Year award.
