Liverpool Football Club are right at the beginning of the biggest couple of weeks in their recent history and it could mean them wearing Champions League and Premier League winners badges on their kit next season.
It’s been 29 years since Liverpool were last champions of England and 14 years since they could claim to be champions of Europe but by the end of June 1st they could still be champions of both.
The Reds have had an incredible season so far and have already earned 94 points, which would have easily been enough points to win the Premier League most seasons, but have unfortunately come up against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, currently on 95 points.
Jurgen Klopp’s team could still win the title but need City to slip up on Sunday away against Brighton and they must better the result against Wolves.
The Champions League is a more winnable trophy this season after the Reds’ incredible comeback against Barcelona in midweek.
But before the final weekend and the European final ‘go down’ there’s a look at the future for Liverpool with the leaking of their away kit for the 2019/20 season.
As always it comes from everyone’s favourite football kit related site Footy Headlines:
New Balance currently make Liverpool’s kits, and have been for a few years, but the deal with the American company is set to come to and end at the culmination of next season.
That means the white number that’s been leaked today is likely to be the last away kit they produce for the Merseyside team.
Last month it was reported by ESPN that the five time European champions were in talks with Nike over a £750 million kit deal that would be the biggest in Premier League history, beating Manchester United’s deal with Adidas.
For Liverpool fans, players and for their manager they’ll be plenty of time to think about next season and what the future holds but right now they have two massive days ahead, on Sunday and on June 1st.
Will Liverpool get their hands on the Premier League trophy, the Champions League trophy, both or none of the above?
