Liverpool will receive 40 medals to hand out, with the rule being that those who have made five or more appearances are entitled to a medal and take priority before the remaining prizes are handed out to backroom staff.
But believing that everyone has played their part in the title triumph, Klopp has said all players will get a medal – even if he has to produce them or give up his.
