Liverpool fans have been showing their respect to Flamengo and their manager Jorge Jesus after a shirt was presented to them after their 1-0 win in the Club World Cup final.
The Reds became the champions of the world for the first time in their 127-year history after they needed extra-time to overcome the Copa Libertadores winners.
Roberto Firmino scored in the 99th minute was the difference between the two teams in what was an evenly-matched contest.
However, the coveted trophy was not the only thing that Jurgen Klopp will return to Merseyside with.
