Liverpool - 2005 Champions League

The 2004–05 UEFA Champions League was the 50th season of UEFA's premier European club football tournament, and the 13th since it was rebranded as the UEFA Champions League in 1992.

The competition was won by Liverpool FC, who beat AC Milan on penalties in the final, having come back from 3–0 down at half-time.

Liverpool's captain, Steven Gerrard, was named as UEFA's Footballer of the Year for his key role in the final and throughout the Champions League season.

As it was their fifth European Cup title, Liverpool kept the trophy and received the UEFA badge of honour. A new trophy was made for the 2005–06 season.
