Klopp congratulates the Liverpool Women’s team as Fahey leads them to success


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to the Liverpool Women’s team after they claimed the Championship title on Sunday. The Reds make a return to the FA Women’s Super League after a two year exile.
Republic of Ireland international Ruth Fahey captained the Reds, was on the scoresheet in their 4-2 win over Bristol City and was named Player of the Match. Other Irish Internationals at the club are Leanne Kiernan and Megan Campbell.
A record crowd of 5,752 saw Liverpool claim the championship title and Klopp was quick to congratulate them. He said: “Congratulations – I sent messages yesterday, I was really happy. I was following it all the time. After the result last week it was clear they needed a draw against Bristol to make it and they won. I’m really happy for the girls and for Matt (Beard) – it is a big, big thing.
He added: “Obviously, Liverpool was in the last years not famous for treating or dealing with women’s football outstandingly well. They didn’t go down to the Championship for no reason.
