Although the Community Shield is widely considered a glorified friendly, Liverpool’s win on Saturday means another silverware box has been ticked by Jurgen Klopp‘s side.
It’s been a long time since the Reds lifted the Community Shield, 16 years to be exact, but that all changed at the King Power Stadium thanks to a 3-1 win.
It left Jurgen Klopp to say after the match, “I was happy with our start of the game, but every sub made a difference. The boys are ready and it is good.”
The focus will be on what is to come with this still a pre-season outing, but as preparation games go, this was the perfect stepping stone.
That we got to see Jorgan Henderson dust off his shuffle was a welcome sight, one we hope to see quite a few more times in 2022/23.
Safe to say, a lot of fun was had by the players, coaches and the travelling Reds:

And there was even time for one fan to get his leg signed by Klopp, which sits above his existing tattoo of the manager!
