I want to thank all our supporters watching us from all corners of the world. You made this possible for us and I hope we can keep bringing you the joy you deserve. now they're gonna believe us," Salah tweeted.

The Reds have won 28 of their 31 Premier League matches this season. Defender Andy Robertson stressed that the club's united approach played a big part in their title triumph, noting that they are like one big family.
"As a squad we're so close. We love coming in to training every single day. If somebody is having a bad game, we dig them out of a hole and we stick together on the pitch, we stick together off the pitch - that's why this squad is so special. I love being a part of it," Robertson told Liverpool's official website.
"We're all kind of brothers and we have a dad figure in the gaffer and he's the one that leads us in the right direction. Him and his staff have been second to none, to be fair, since I've came here. This season they've been excellent to us going, keep us hungry, keep us motivated. Motivation has never been a struggle. As players we've always been hungry and we always wanted to win trophies for this club. Luckily, we're now showing that in the last 12 months," he added.
Liverpool will now play against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on July 3.
