Jurgen Klopp’s Reds clinched the famous big-eared trophy on June 1 with a comfortable 2-0 win over Spurs, thanks to an early penalty from Mohamed Salah and a late Divock Origi strike.

And the famous ‘Walk of Champions’ emblazoned on the way to the pitch at Anfield has been changed, with the ‘5’ on the European Cup being edited to a ‘6’.

It didn’t look as though Liverpool would get the chance to compete for another title however, as the Reds trailed Barcelona 3-0 in the semi-finals after a heavy defeat at the Camp Nou.

But the spirited Reds produced a sensational display at Anfield in the second leg to book their spot at the Wanda Metropolitano, where they were able to go ahead of the Catalan side and third in the all-time charts, with six Champions League triumphs compared to Barcelona’s five.

Only Real Madrid (13) and AC Milan (7) have claimed the iconic trophy more times.

Boss Klopp joined legends Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, Rafa Benitez as only the fourth Reds manager to bring home the cup, writing his name in Liverpool folklore with an impressive campaign that also saw the Merseysiders miss out on the Premier League title by a solitary point.

Despite the disappointment of a second-place finish in the league, fans were sent into ecstasy with the European victory and many took to Twitter after the tunnel’s artwork was updated.

One fan wrote: “This tunnel will be upgraded very often from now.”

Another added: “That number 6 looks pretty damn good.”

A third fan asked: “When’s the life-sized Origi decal getting added lads?”

“Super Cup is the next stop,” wrote one supporter.

Another fan simply added: “Wow.”

Although Liverpool fans were raving over the new print, other supporters couldn’t help but have a joke at the Reds’ expense.

Posting a photo of the Premier League trophy, one Chelsea fan wrote: “Sorry but I can’t see this? Which tunnel you put this?”

A Manchester United fan added: “The one with 18 trophies is great.

“Can’t increase anymore in 30 years.”
