As the banner proudly states, Liverpool are European royalty. Five times the Reds have listen the European Cup and three times they have lifted the UEFA Cup. This is a club who history in deeply intertwined with European football from those four wins in seven years in the late 70s early 80s to the Heysel disaster in 1985.
So why does Brendan Rodgers insist of devaluing Liverpool’s European history? It began last season when Liverpool travelled to play Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabéu, one of the cathedrals of world football.
