The end of decades of frustration

So yes, this Premier League title, acquired without playing and in the heavy context of the coronavirus, may not have the same flavor as in normal times. Yes, Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and all their partners in this formidable team will not be able to celebrate it with their loyal and ardent supporters of Anfield, due to the closed session decreed until the end of the season. But, at the end of a breathtaking journey, with only one defeat so far, they put an end to decades of frustration and allowed a whole people to regain their pride.
