Lots of Liverpool fans rushed to social media on Wednesday morning after the award nominees lists for FIFA’s The Best awards were released.
The world football organisation released this year’s lists (cited by Paul Joyce), showing that five current Liverpool players and manager Jurgen Klopp have all been nominated in this year’s awards.
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker and Thiago Alcantara were all included, with the latter being recognised after winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich at the end of last season.
Last year, with Klopp won the main coaching prize, with Alisson and Van Dijk included in the best eleven for 2019 (via BBC Sport).
Will a Liverpool player win the Men's Player award?
With this in mind, these supporters were excited to see so many players included on the back of their club winning their first league title in 30 years during the 2019/20 campaign and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
