BBC To Show Documentary On Liverpool's League-Winning Season This Weekend

As Liverpool continue their pre-season preparations with a 2-2 draw against Red Bull Salzburg, it's somewhat startling to remember that the Community Shield is taking place this Saturday.

Yep, it seems that time has flown by since the Reds were crowned champions of England on June 26 after Chelsea beat Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

While the focus of Jurgen Klopp's men is undoubtedly on their match against the FA Cup winners Arsenal, the curtain-raiser at Wembley is just a precursor to their Premier League opener against Leeds United at Anfield.

Granted, the coronavirus pandemic has meant that this year's pre-season has been an extremely strange one for players and fans alike, but we've a feeling that Liverpool fans will be tuned into BBC Two this Sunday.

That's because the 90-minute documentary Liverpool FC: The 30 Year Wait is airing at 9pm.

In terms of an official synopsis, it states: "The documentary focuses on Liverpool's Premier League title success, the first time they had tasted top-flight glory since the 1989/90 First Division campaign. The Reds were all set to clinch the title in record time, but the enforced break due to the coronavirus put their celebrations on hold, until they were eventually crowned champions in June thanks to Manchester City's defeat to Chelsea.

"Featuring interviews with key players and staff, this documentary focuses on what it means for the title to have finally returned to Merseyside after so many years."

If you're a Liverpool fan, set record because Liverpool FC: The 30 Year Wait starts at 9pm this Sunday on BBC Two.
