Liverpool dramatically hailed as ‘biggest club in the world’ for key reason

After the Champions League success in 2005 which saw Liverpool defeat AC Milan on a famous night in Istanbul, most fans would have been forgiven for automatically expecting a rise back to the top for the Reds.

But the decade that followed saw Liverpool flirt with mid-table mediocrity in the Premier League, rarely winning any silverware, prior to the appoitnment of Jurgen Klopp.

Under the German, the Reds have been to the final of the Champions League in two straight seasons and after being crowned champions of Europe last term, there is no doubt that the club is back on top of the football pyramid.

Therefore, journalist Paul Joyce has suggested that “Liverpool are the biggest club in the world,” due to the club’s big global scope and the sheer size of the Reds’ fanbase, based on engagement by supporters.

Following the remarkable comeback against Barcelona, Liverpool featured in 401.4 million social media video views and had the most online engagements of any side in Europe.

With that and other reasons considered, Times journalist Paul Joyce has dramatically pointed out what may well be a controversial fact that Liverpool are the biggest club in the world, ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

“During the same period, the club’s website experienced its highest daily visitor numbers since records began in 2012, while “Liverpool” sat second in worldwide Twitter trends behind “#UCLfinal” for five hours after the Champions League final,” Joyce wrote in the Times.

“The power of Liverpool’s support had been highlighted by the 50,000 who crammed into Madrid’s Plaza de Felipe II in the build-up to their 2-0 Champions League final victory over Tottenham Hotspur and the sight of 750,000 people lining the parade route to welcome their heroes home,” he continued.

“The sheer size of a club reawakened under the manager, Jürgen Klopp, and owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), would also be showcased by one video which put together images from 36 locations across the globe in which a sixth European Cup triumph was being celebrated.

“Those pictures help to support the argument that, in terms of supporter culture and engagement, Liverpool are the biggest club in the world.”
